I have just successfully upgraded to 4.1_STABLE, apart from one minor inconsistancy. ;^ ) Which is:
"Where to put /var and /tmp" in the manual says that var ends up on the root if it is not specified anywhere else. Well unfortunately I did not know I could specify the /var directory to load up anywhere else appart from the root :^ (
But I thought by following the example and creating a symbolic link to /usr/var, this will solve the problem.
So what I did was as in the manual
# mkdir /usr/var
# cd /var
# tar cf - . (cd /usr/var; tar xf - )
# cd /
# rm -rf /var
rm: /var: Device busy
This did copy and removed all the files in /var to /usr/var, but it did not remove the /var directory, so if I tried to create the ln -s /usr/var /var, I get two var directories ie /var/var, which does not help in my cause.
