Tonite I was going to allocate some more disk space to a 6.1 RELEASE system. I did it the same way I've done it for years: I went into sysinstall, selected Custom->Partition and added a new partition (twed0s3) using some of the remaining space. I then moved up to twed0s1 and did an "S" because sysinstall never remembers that the first slice was bootable and not doing this leaves one with an unbootable system.
I then do a "W" to write out this information, say "Yes" to the warning since I am modifying an existing system and select the Standard Boot Manager. Instead of the normal response, I get ERROR: Unable to write data to disk twed0! and Disk partition write returned an error status! which is most disconcerting. No messages in the logs or on the (serial) console. Checking sysinstall again, the disk remains unchanged. Has something recently changed in this process? /\/\ \/\/ _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
