Firstly, thanks for the help so far.
My disk is an IBM 27G. The Disklabel config looks like
Part Mount Size Newfs Part
---- ----- ---- ----- ----
ad0s1a / 1024MB UFS1 Y
ad0s1b swap 1024MB SWAP
ad0s1d /var 256MB UFS1+S Y
ad0s1e /tmp 256MB UFS1+S Y
ad0s1f /usr 23545MB UFS1+S Y
Also, for the "f" partition I make sure that:
newfs -f 2048 -b 16384
As far as my installation specs go, I choose "All" to
install everything, including source, which I want,
and I choose the ports collection as well because it
feels me with a sense of divine power, and I also
actually use it.
As you can see, my /usr mount should have plenty o'
When I specify mount points manually I enter "/" or
"/usr", not "mnt/usr". However, I've only, on most
tries, been specifying the root partition and swap, so
I can control those sizes, and letting the "Auto"
config take over after that.
Finally, when I create the initial slice, I allocate
the whole space for freebsd, which I want, and I press
"S" in order to ensure that it is bootable.
Thanks again. Any advice is hugely appreciated.
