Hello, I recently updated a system running freebsd 4.2 to 4.7. I realize that there is new ATA code in 4.7. This system is on a SCSI disk, but /home is on a large IDE drive.
Following a 'make installkernel', I rebooted to single user mode, ran installworld, then did mergemaster. I let mergemaster run the new '/dev/MAKEDEV all'. The 4.2 system called my /home partition /dev/ad0s1e; during boot up of 4.7, I see that the disk is recognized, but is called "ad5" instead of "ad0". I haven't changed the hardware at all, btw. However, there appears to be no /dev/ad5s1e, and furthermore, when I run the disklabel editor, it tells me that there is no filesystem on /dev/ad5. If I reboot to the old 4.2 kernel, somewhat problematically, I can mount /dev/ad0s1e, and access my files. The UPDATING file mentioned the new ata code, but didn't say anything about the need to re-create filesystems; I must be missing something. Any help appreciated.
