This should be done on partition b, i.e. on ad0s1b.
Hi Aguiar, I was installing FreeBSD 6.0-BETA4 a few moments ago, and saw the same problem. I was adjusting the partitions (not slices), somehow it seems the sysinstall (or the underlying subsystem) seemed to have forgotten about the swap partition. Anyway, i re-sliced the disk and repartitioned the subsequent slice w/ partitions sizes already calculated. This time i had no problem. Mind you that i installed from the same disc previously on a different computer, and missing swap node message did not come up while adjusting the partition size multiple times. Whatever ... - Parv -- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
