System: FreeBSD merlin.emma.line.org 5.3-BETA5 FreeBSD 5.3-BETA5 #6: Sat Sep 25 15:03:30 CEST 2004 root at merlin.emma.line.org:/usr/src/sys/i386/compile/MA5 i386
I ran "make installworld" from a ready built BETA6 while / was low on space.
Make installworld crashed in the middle of its process and left me with
a system that had no libc.so.5.
I have no "INSTALL"-related options in /etc/make.conf.
1. build world and install rescue so you can back out
2. fill / (perhaps with dd if=/dev/zero of=/deleteme) so it
cannot hold another libc.so.5 copy
3. install world
Depending on the exact amount of free space on / in step #2 and #3, you may not
hit a problem with installing libc.so.5 but some other installation.
to recover, use: /rescue/cp /usr/obj/usr/src/lib/libc/libc.so.5 /lib
Let the installation for ESSENTIAL files use the -S flag so that there is
always a usable copy of these files in place.
