FreeBSD Boot halted on Recovering vi editor sessions

June 18th, 2013

Recently I noticed that one of the FreeBSD servers that I am using is not able to boot properly due to issues with session recovery.

The thing is that when you play around with the VI editor, there are sometimes temporary session files stored on the server.

These files reside in the folder /var/tmp/vi.recover

In order to avoid boot halting, you need to regularly check the content of the folder.

I solved the issue by radically deleting the whole folder with a cron job.

Hope this helps someone else but myself.

Cheers,

St0ma
