FreeBSD freebsd1.local 8.0-RELEASE FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE #0:
 Sat Nov 21 15:02:08 UTC 2009 root at mason.cse.buffalo.edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GE
NERIC  amd64

is now:

FreeBSD freebsd1.local 8.0-STABLE FreeBSD 8.0-STABLE #0: Tue Mar 23 14:55:20 CET 2010     thomas at freebsd1.local:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64

It seems that the automatic partition layout of
FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE needs revision, so that two
/boot/kernel* fit into /boot.
I installed
with autopartioning of the slice, and cvsup'ed
RELENG_8 from
Then i did
  cd /usr/src
  make clean
  make buildkernel -j4 KERNCONF=GENERIC
  make installkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC

make installkernel led to
  /: write failed, filesystem is full
  install: /boot/kernel/zfs.ko.symbols: No space left on device

It turns out that two directories occupy nearly
250 MB each:
I deleted some of the fattest files which i deem
unused on my system:

Then "make installkernel" succeeded.

The filesystems look now like
  Filesystem  1K-blocks     Used    Avail Capacity  Mounted on
  /dev/ad4s1a    507630   479362   -12342   103%    /
  devfs               1        1        0   100%    /dev
  /dev/ad4s1f  41345676  2303474 35734548     6%    /usr
  /dev/ad4s1d   4925486     9952  4521496     0%    /var
  /dev/ad4s1e    507630       12   467008     0%    /tmp

So i should better remove some more files.
The new kernel boots.
Shall i remove /boot/kernel.old now ?

Have a nice day :)
