In our case above, the instructions were to do the operation with the disk not in use and the os in SUM. That's very clear. Now, I f they wanted to point out a bug, the bug means that there is an anomaly under certain circumstances - and in this case there really is no bug as it is very clear as to how the instructions should be used. If they consider the operation under a live files system a bug, then they should just make a warning and say something along the lines of "do not use on live system as that may destroy data" or something to that effect.

Just a note: I find it strange that nobody looked into the problem of the confusion... I thought I had pointed out where the co;nfusion arises... and no one seems to have either understood the inconsistencies or bothere to read the explanation... oh well... let's keep on blundering away... ;-) _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
