No, geom_part* are already replacing obsolete modules; geom_mbr is one of them targeted for removal. Until fdisk and bsdlabel got fixed you should use gpart(8) instead. I switched to gpart(8) months ago(did complete reinstallation) so that I could have more than 8 labels :) -- Paul _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
