Hi,

OK, i think i found the problem:


I have attached a usb-memory disk and tried to same steps, i got same error: 'bsdlabel -w /dev/da0s1.eli', 'bsdlabel -e /dev/da0s1.eli', and 'newfs /dev/da0s1.elia': 'Could not find special device'.

Then, i deleted all partitions, and created single partition and labelled it as FreeBSD partition => 165. Then i followed same steps and i did see '/dev/da0s1.elia' device node in /dev.


In short, the partition should be labblled as FreeBSD (165). I don't know why this is must.

Regards,
Cem

did you check that after bsdlabel -e partitions are actually updated?

Well, could this be because i partitioned ad4 hard disk by gparted? Disk has other OSs on other partitions... Very strange, i couldn't find any helpfull information about this on the net --- nor similar problem. Maybe i should try a latest snaphot instead of FreeBSD 7 release.

Hello!

After initializing geli and attach geli enabled partition, i would like to create freebsd slices. Once i try 'bsdlabel -w /dev/ad4s1.eli' and then 'bsdlabel -e /dev/ad4s1.eli', this does not create ie; /dev/ad4s1.elia and i can not run newfs in success: 'Could not find special device'.

Thanks if someone has advise about this.

no idea. i have partitioned geli devices and i partitioned it just as you said (bsdlabel -w and -e), just i don't use fdisk but it shouldn't matter
