Journal smash's Journal: FreeBSD 5.0

Well, I downloaded and installed FreeBSd 5.0 the other day, and it seems that the installer is a little bit screwy - in particular, it failed to newfs my /var slice, and as a result it wasn't mounted, and /var was unpacked under the root.

I rebooted, manually newfs'd and moved /var from the root to it, but I'm guessing some permissions didn't come across properly, as X, and vi complained about access to /var/tmp.

Couldn't be bothered sorting it out, and went back to 4.7 for the time being...

Think I'll wait for 5.0.1 or 5.1 - some of the new features are very enticing (proper threads, devfs, etc), but for the time being, 4.7 works well enough for me :)
