It's not the booting that is a problem. That was working fine until I had to wipe out the MBR when my disklabel was chomped last week.. It's the grub command-line "shell"/installer that won't work now (admittedly I have not updated my grub boot blocks in a while either, so it may be a pre-GEOM issue). Would not accessing /dev/adX with open() or so go through GEOM? -- Hi! I'm a .signature virus! Copy me into your ~/.signature to help me spread!
