[suggestion] i had to delete/resize default sized partitions.


i installed openbsd 6.1 when it was released and chose automatic/default partition layout.
everything went fine until i chose to install/compile ports, i ran out of disk space.

luckily there was this howto :
https://www.bsdhowto.ch/how-to-resiz...ns-on-openbsd/

it was easy to delete/add/grow partitions if you followed the howto.

maybe openbsd guys should notify users that if you compile ports you need bigger sized partition.

thanks

The disk partitioning section of the Installation Guide in the OpenBSD FAQ already does.

Compiling some ports from source can take huge amounts of space on your /usr and /tmp partitions.

Glad to be of help. The FAQ I pointed you to is kept up-to-date with the most recent release, which is 6.2.

BTW, it may help to know that OpenBSD 6.1 will be end-of-life and no longer supported upon the release of 6.3. Releases occur twice per year, on or before May 1 / November 1, and only the two most recent releases are supported.

On a -release system, there's usually no need to build ports unless you've fetched the -stable ports tree and are building ports from that?
