Hello - I've been running Linux for a not quite a year, and have recently
set up two OpenBSD systems (one 2.8 & one 2.9). The 2.8 box is a P100
with a very small drive, so I didn't put X on it (it will eventually
become my firewall when I learn more about pf).
When I installed the 2.9 system, I created a partition for X. Here's
my df -h output (as root):
Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/sd0a 496M 27M 445M 6% /
/dev/sd0d 248M 2.0K 236M 0% /tmp
/dev/sd0e 248M 23M 212M 10% /var
/dev/sd0f 124M 1.0K 117M 0% /usr/X11R6
/dev/sd0g 496M 373M 99M 79% /usr
/dev/sd0h 496M 6.6M 465M 1% /home
/dev/cd0a 647M 647M 0B 100% /mnt/cdrom
Since I have X up and running with KDE, I was sort of surprised to see
that the partition is at 0% capacity. Also, I'm not sure what to make
of the 117M available out of a 124M partition being 0% used.
Just to be sure that I named the partition correctly, I did an ls -l
of /usr/X11R6, and got exactly what I expected:
-r--r--r-- 1 root wheel 4051 Apr 23 13:50 README
drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 3072 Jun 27 19:46 bin
drwxr-xr-x 6 root wheel 512 Jun 22 12:55 include
drwxr-xr-x 4 root wheel 1536 Jun 22 12:57 lib
drwxr-xr-x 7 root wheel 512 Apr 24 10:01 man
All of the directories are populated. A du /usr/X11R6 (again as root)
also shows the directories and their contents as being present. It's
quite long, so I haven't posted it but can on request.
>From my Linux experience, something isn't right. /dev/sd0f should
have quite a bit of space used up for the X install, and a cursory
inspection of /usr (/dev/sd0g) makes me think that at least some of
the 340MB shown as used should be on /dev/sd0f instead. Instead, it
looks as if /dev/sd0f only has the tables of contents for the
directories actually in /usr/X11R6, while all of the subdirectories
and their contents are on the /dev/sd0g partition.
I've looked through the man pages, etc. but I must be missing
something. All of these partitions were created during the initial
install - nothing added later or modified in any way.
Anyone have a cluestick for a BSD newbie as to why (apparently)
nothing is being written to /dev/sd0f?
