How much HDD space does FreeBSD need? - FreeBSD

Hi, I'm wondering how much HDD space does FreeBSD need in a normal installation. What I mean by the normal installation includes 'Full X-Development' packages with Gnome. Oh, It's 5.3-RELEASE. My HDD has 10G space for FreeBSD and I installed onto that space. The FreeBSD installation was of no problem. However, once I tried to upgrade Gnome 2.8 to 2.10, I've faced up a warning message at some point that I am running out of HDD space. (I just executed the recommend upgrade shell script from http://www.FreeBSD.org/gonme/) Is 10G HDD space is not good enough? Soo-Hyun...

    Hi,

    I'm wondering how much HDD space does FreeBSD need in a normal
    installation. What I mean by the normal installation includes 'Full
    X-Development' packages with Gnome. Oh, It's 5.3-RELEASE.

    My HDD has 10G space for FreeBSD and I installed onto that space. The
    FreeBSD installation was of no problem. However, once I tried to
    upgrade Gnome 2.8 to 2.10, I've faced up a warning message at some
    point that I am running out of HDD space. (I just executed the
    recommend upgrade shell script from http://www.FreeBSD.org/gonme/)

    Is 10G HDD space is not good enough?

    The work areas are probably whats killing you. I don't know how you can
    manage them with the upgrade shell script, you will have to look
    through the script to determine that. Somehow or another you need to
    make sure after each port is updated its work area is being cleaned
    before moving on to the next port.

    One thing you may want to consider is setting WRKDIRPREFIX=/tmp
    in /etc/make.conf this way you can monitor the size of /tmp with du and
    then maybe manually delete the work areas of ports you are certain have
    been updated.

    Well, it *should* be plenty. How did you partition the drive?

    Could you show us the output of "df", the output of
    "cat /etc/fstab", and give the text and context of the
    warning message you refer to?

    And take a look at

    du -hs /usr/ports/distfiles/ /usr/ports/packages

    You shouldn't really need any packages. And you can manage distfiles with
    portsclean (installed with portupgrade).

    Left unmanaged they can quickly mount up to several GB. A full set of
    up-to-date files for a desktop machine should take up about a 1 GB.

    Well, I have just formatted the portion that FreeBSD is placed. And I
    have just been reinstalling the whole system again. I found that the
    disk shortage does not come from gnome but from OpenOffice 1.1
    installation.

    Then, would OpenOffice require a large HDD space? (If it does, how much large?)

    For your reference, I have partitioned (and labeled) the disk by using
    Auto Allocation(?) option in FreeBSD disk labeler.

    Thank you.

    I have it installed from the package, otherwise
    it requires an enormous amount of work/compile space
    in /usr/ports.

    What do you mean by installing OpenOffice from the package? Did you
    mean it by going through FreeBSD ports (/usr/ports/...)? Or how do I
    install OpenOffice from the package?

    Download the .tgz file yourself and install the
    package manually; or install "portupgrade" from
    ports, and then do:

    portinstall -PP openoffice

    The -PP enforces to install from package collection
    only.
