Hi, The following is an extract from: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/vinum-vinum.html [...] Note: Starting with FreeBSD 5, Vinum has been rewritten in order to fit into the GEOM architecture (Chapter 18), retaining the original ideas, terminology, and on-disk metadata. This rewrite is called gvinum (for GEOM vinum). The following text usually refers to Vinum as an abstract name, regardless of the implementation variant. Any command invocations should now be done using the gvinum command, and the name of the kernel module has been changed from vinum.ko to geom_vinum.ko, and all device nodes reside under /dev/gvinum instead of /dev/vinum. As of FreeBSD 6, the old Vinum implementation is no longer available in the code base.
