I'm trying to translate the INSTALL amiga document in french. When doing this,
I would also update hardware requirements about disk space.
NetBSD grow fast, and we should update this section because it's the first
thing that a future user see when he want to install NetBSD.
After a make cleandir :
du -ks /usr/src = 179.485 bytes.
du -ks /usr/src/sys = 49.459 bytes (but I have ksrc-amiga AND ksrc-i386).
Here is my df's output :
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/sd1a 22549 16183 5238 76% /
/dev/sd1f 595302 389064 176472 69% /usr
/dev/sd1e 89305 51254 33585 60% /usr/src/sys (*)
/dev/sd1d 298748 171057 112753 60% /local
mfs:96 1887 3 1789 0% /tmp
(*) /usr/src/sys contain .o files.
Source tree for ONE machine, including kernel sources could be estimated to
200 Mbytes (150 Mb for sources and 50 Mb for kernel). I found 187.909 bytes for
a i386 source tree WITH object files.
/root is always at 20 Mbytes. Need more if you include big /var directories,
but we talk about a standard install.
My problem is to know how much disk space is needed for /usr only, without any
sources (I have /usr/X11R6, /usr/xsrc symlinked, some packages, etc..., so it's
hard for me to find this value). This could maybe be found in looking the
*.tgz files (if someone could post sizes of current files, that could help).
Could the results of disk space be used to all architectures ?
