Using the new
bsdinstall works like a charm :-) Thanks!
I want a very small install - no
src (I'm ok with the prebuilt kernels).
So I just selected
ports - I want to be able to add ports.
It turns out that after boot I needed to install the following
ports (with their dependencies):
Back in November 2009 I installed my NAS with the newest FreeBSD: 8.0. I made some choices about partitioning that I now want to redo.
My initial partitioning was
/had around 4.5 GB
/tmphad around 0.5 GB
/varhad around 3 GB
/homehad around 895 GB
And back then I actually decided that the 2 GB RAM in the server was enough, so I didn't have a swap partition :-/
First - having no swap is bad when the server is very busy! And for home use there is no need to separate /tmp and /var from /. And last - the / partition was way too small. I was having trouble using ports all the time, and need to clean up very often...
So I found a new HD for the new boot disk. Luckily I had a WD Caviar Green 1TB with 64 MB cache. Perfect!
I settled for the following partitioning
/has around 39 GB
/homehas around 873 GB
swaphas 4 GB
