I had posted a question about Partition's size for
Sol-2.7, when I am upgrading OS on Sun m/c with

Almost all have concluded to have a bigger partition
for /var as it accocmodates logs, patches-info, etc.
and also to increase size for /usr

And secondly, there should not be any effect on the
third party tools/packages in /usr/local, 
but there can a possibility to recompile Apache.

Thanks once again
