I just installed FreeBSD. After I installed it, I was surprised to find only 26M of space on /. I used the auto-defaults during the Disklabel portion of the install.
[cstankevitz at crs-m6300 ~]$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/ad4s1a 496M 430M 26M 94% /
devfs 1.0K 1.0K 0B 100% /dev
/dev/ad4s1e 496M 14K 456M 0% /tmp
/dev/ad4s1f 113G 1.9G 102G 2% /usr
/dev/ad4s1d 2.9G 7.9M 2.6G 0% /var
Q1: Is 26M free space on / after installing FreeBSD normal?
Q2: Will I be able to install GNOME, Firefox, download 30 MB of files, and place them on my GNOME dekstop? (I believe the desktop is located at /home/cstankevitz/.desktop aka on the root partition where there is only 26M of free space)
Q3: Which changes, if any, should I make to my system?
