I want to install the companion software CD which consists
of the GNU utilities. Should I make a new filesystem to
hold these utilities before I install them.
The default solaris installation is divided into three
filesystems: /, /usr/, and /export.
How do I create a /var filesystem to hold all
the variable system logs etc...
How do I create a /opt/sfw filesystem to hold all the GNU
utilities from the companion CD.
Do I do a normal installation of solaris, and then create the filesystems with newfs or mkfs? or do I create these filesystems during the installation somehow.
At this point all I have been able to do is create the /var directory as a subdirectory of the root slice, and the /opt/sfw directory as a subdirectory of the root slice as well. This fills up the root slice and causes problems.
Thanks in advance,
