Does anyone use it? I am trying to boot from a FAT32 formatted USB stick and to minimise the amount of stuff I have to put in an MFS I'd like to be able to load the kernel directly from the USB stick.
I'm testing in parallels and I have started the loader from a normally formatted disk and I have another formatted as FAT32 (with newfs_msdos) and the loader sees it but doesn't show any files present, eg OK lsdev cd devices: disk devices: disk0: BIOS drive A: disk1: BIOS drive C: disk1s1a: FFS disk1s1b: swap disk1s1d: FFS disk1s1e: FFS disk1s1f: FFS disk2: BIOS drive D: disk2s1: FAT-32 pxe devices: OK set currdev=disk2s1: OK ls / OK Whereas if I mount it once booted in FreeBSD I can see the files I put on it as you would expect. -- Daniel O'Connor software and network engineer for Genesis Software - http://www.gsoft.com.au "The nice thing about standards is that there are so many of them to choose from." -- Andrew Tanenbaum GPG Fingerprint - 5596 B766 97C0 0E94 4347 295E E593 DC20 7B3F CE8C _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
