(While this may not be a strictly CURRENT issue, I asked on questions@,
but have not found a solution.)
One of my boxes failed, and for various reasons it became easier to
just scrub and rebuild it. Like its predecessor it will run CURRENT
1) Using BSDinstall, I flushed then created the first disk:
ada2p1 freebsd-boot 128k
ada2p2 freebsd-swap 4g
ada2p3 freebsd-ufs 25g
(There are non-bootable disks at ada0, -1, and -3.)
2) Installed off the 9.0 CD, got it up and running, everything was good.
3) Used csup (tag=.) to update the source tree as of 00:01 on 12/30.
4a) Built world - OK.
4b) Build kernel - OK.
4c) Ran mergemaster - OK.
4d) Installed kernel - OK.
5) On rebooting, the loader(??) claims to not be able to find a
bootable partition - i.e. I get a screen that ends in "mountroot > ".
Providing the presumptive value by hand returns "error 19".
6) Boot using installation CD and use "gpart show" to double check
device names and partitions; everything looks good.
7) Try normal booting again, no go.
This is my first time installing to a completely GPT partitioned
system, and I have (obviously) failed to grok something. I checked
src/UPDATING and found nothing which covered this.
What have I bungled, and how do I fix it?
