This is a new one for me. I decided to do a manual update on my 8.1
box, starting with csup. Buildworld went fine, as did buildkernel.
However, when I tried to install the new kernel installkernel choked
with an error message telling me that it could not proceed because the
root partition was full. What! I did a df and sure enough the root
partition was overloaded. When I installed the system I used
sysinstalls recommended sizes for the root partion, which is around
10G. Anyway, when I rebooted, the system rebooted into single user
mode, and that is presently where I stand. I have no idea how to
proceed at this point, and would appreciate any help in fixing this. Of
course, I smell a newbie type error in all of this, but haven't quite
figured out where I went wrong.
