Ahh, so I'm not the only one that ran into this problem. I thought
I'd balked something up myself, so I did some extensive fiddling to
try and rectify the problem. I got it working eventually by issuing
newfs manually on each of the new partitions, mounting them on their
respective /mnt mount points (i.e. /mnt, /mnt/var, /mnt/usr, etc),
then symlinking these back to their root mount point equivalents
(/var, /var/tmp, /usr, etc).
I actually did all of this while the sysinstall dialog was still up
on the first terminal -- once I'd fiddled with all the mount points
and selected to try and install the bin distribution again, it
Not exactly an elegant solution, unfortunately. It'd be interesting
to hear if anyone else has this problem.
