Hi I try to understand bsdlabel. I have former fat slice (ad1s3) on my disk and I want to make several BSD partitions on it. I did this:
# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad1s3 bs=1k count=1024 1024+0 records in 1024+0 records out 1048576 bytes transferred in 0.318986 secs (3287217 bytes/sec) # bsdlabel -w ad1s3 # bsdlabel -e ad1s3 (edit) # bsdlabel ad1s3 # /dev/ad1s3: 8 partitions: # size offset fstype [fsize bsize bps/cpg] a: 10000000 16 4.2BSD 0 0 0 b: 10000000 10000016 4.2BSD 0 0 0 c: 47616660 0 unused 0 0 # "raw" part, don't edit d: 27616644 20000016 4.2BSD 0 0 0 # newfs -U /dev/ad1s3a newfs: /dev/ad1s3a: could not find special device # ls /dev/ad1s3* /dev/ad1s3 # What I miss because I don't have ad1s3a,b,d? If repeat same procedure on disk (big file) mounted as /dev/md0, a see /dev/md0,a,b,d,e... after this group of commands. thanks SergiM _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
