four months ago, i faced problem of insufficient inodes for /usr and one of
solution for that, from Gregory Bond, was that to backup and do a newfs
for that file system.
today the situation become worst since i can not do any portupgrade even
/usr/local is a separate file system though.
am not an expert in FreeBSD but a plain user instead. i have backed /usr up
already and going to do newfs on that. my questions are that
1) should i drop into a single mode first ?
2) what parameter for newfs to pass to (i used sysinstall to do that
and did make world and friends to upgrade my machine) ?
below are my uname and informations about /usr
[firak] ~ # uname -a
