Problem updating NanoBSD 2.1 to 2.1.2: Disk Full



  • Hi,

    I'm trying to upgrade to 2.1.2.

    I've increased the /var and /tmp RAM disk space to 200mb and 100mb respectively.

    The log prints out

    kernel: pid 22850 (lighttpd), uid 0 inumber 10124 on /: filesystem full
    

    regardless if I do a manual upload of the upgrade image, or the auto-updater downloads it.

    I checked with df -m and I get the following:

    Filesystem        1M-blocks Used Avail Capacity  Mounted on
    /dev/ufs/pfsense0       215  167    30    85%    /
    devfs                     0    0     0   100%    /dev
    /dev/ufs/cf              49    1    43     4%    /cf
    /dev/md0                 96    0    88     0%    /tmp
    /dev/md1                193   20   157    11%    /var
    devfs                     0    0     0   100%    /var/dhcpd/dev
    
    

    It seems that the download is going into /root, but since the download is over 30mb is not working. It fails the signature verification (since it's not downloading the full image.

    It gets to the point where df -m shows:

    Filesystem        1M-blocks Used Avail Capacity  Mounted on
    /dev/ufs/pfsense0       215  215   -17   109%    /
    devfs                     0    0     0   100%    /dev
    /dev/ufs/cf              49    1    43     4%    /cf
    /dev/md0                 96    0    88     0%    /tmp
    /dev/md1                193   20   157    11%    /var
    devfs                     0    0     0   100%    /var/dhcpd/dev
    

    and the upgrade fails. I get back to the "30mb" free by manually deleting the latest.tgz image in /root

    Apart from flashing the CF again, what could I do to be able to upgrade it?

    I'm currently running pfSense 2.1-RELEASE (i386) nanobsd (512mb)

    I've recently updated a similar box and did not encounter this problem.

    Get a bigger CF. End of story. Already discussed elsewhere.



  • But the download could go to ramdisk instead…



  • @robi:

    But the download could go to ramdisk instead…

    Sure, except that machines running from a 512MB card (Alix boxes) are likely to have 256MB of RAM which is barely enough to keep things running.

    This will get you going for now.  Long term though you should upgrade to a larger card.
