|Here's how I created a new file system. Note that this removes all files from
the device. Make a backup first if you wish to retain anything.
In the message
log, it mentions /usr2. If you look the output from mount, you
can see what device is out of inodes. The default value for inodes is
4096. So by specifying 1024 below, I have effectively increased the number of inodes
by a factor of 4. In order words, we can now have four times as many files as we
used to have. We'll use this as a starting point and see how it goes.
/dev/wd0s1a on / (local, writes: sync 424 async 2307)
/dev/wd0s1f on /usr (local, writes: sync 3 async 2158)
/dev/wd0s1e on /var (local, writes: sync 2086 async 7972)
procfs on /proc (local)
/dev/wd1s1e on /usr2 (local, writes: sync 8360 async 12055)
You can see that /usr2 is actually /dev/wd1s1e. So that's
the device which needs to be modified. On my file system, /usr2 contained only the
# umount /dev/wd1s1e
# newfs -i 1024 /dev/wd1s1e
newfs: /dev/wd1s1e: not a character-special device
Warning: Bytes per inode restrict cylinders per group to 12.
Warning: 2448 sector(s) in last cylinder unallocated
/dev/wd1s1e: 415344 sectors in 102 cylinders of 1 tracks, 4096 sectors
202.8MB in 9 cyl groups (12 c/g, 24.00MB/g, 20672 i/g)
super-block backups (for fsck -b #) at:
32, 49184, 98336, 147488, 196640, 245792, 294944, 344096, 393248,
# mount /dev/wd1s1e
# cd /usr
The next step is to recreate my symbolic links back to /usr/ports:
# cd /usr2
# mkdir ports
# ln -s /usr2/ports /usr/ports
Then I went back to installing the entire ports tree.
