I was just looking at the bsdlable manpage, and it says: "For partition `c', * will be interpreted as an offset of 0. The first partition should start at offset 16, because the first 16 sectors are reserved for metadata." I normally use sysintall for new slices, but a few days ago I edited an old slice to turn the old root, swap, /tmp and /var partitions into a single partition d for a squid cache, and I ended-up with this: $ bsdlabel /dev/ad0s2 # /dev/ad0s2: 8 partitions: # size offset fstype [fsize bsize bps/cpg] c: 141853950 0 unused 0 0 # ... d: 5242880 0 4.2BSD 2048 16384 28552 f: 16777216 5242880 4.2BSD 0 0 0 g: 119833854 22020096 4.2BSD 0 0 0 I'm wondering if I should put in an offset of 16 for the d partition _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
