Because that's how I read the code in sys/geom/geom_dev.c. Especially init_dumpdev() - I believe that devtoname() returns a device name without '/dev/'. >> If that's so, >> then rc.d/dumpon must prepend '/dev' when passing the value of 'dumpdev' to >> dumpon(8). > > dumpon(8) opens the configured file (accessible in the normal > namespace, i.e. "/dev/ada0s1b") and uses a magical ioctl on the device > to configure it as the dump device. This is all documented in > dumpon(8). Additionally, dumpon.c is short and quite legible. Indeed. > I don't see etc/rc.d/dumpon prepending /dev to anything. Right, that's why I posted my message (bug report). -- Andriy Gapon _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
