The machine with the tape drive has no OS installed on it yet. Anyway, I tried it with vnode. "dump" runs without any problem. But, "restore" stops after a few minutes. I did the following:
% mdconfig -a -t vnode -f img0 -u md0 % gbde init /dev/md0 -i -L lock I change the sector size to 2048. % gbde attach md0 -l lock % dump -0aLu -b 2 -f /dev/md0.bde /home % mdconfig -a -t vnode -f img1 -u md1 % newfs /dev/md1 % mount /dev/md1 /mnt % cd /mnt % restore -r -f /dev/md0.bde ... The program stops and stay as a runaway process. Can't interrupt, quit, kill, etc. When I reboot the machine, it still won't stop. I have to push the reset button. %uname -a FreeBSD man-97-187.ResHall 5.1-CURRENT FreeBSD 5.1-CURRENT #0: Thu Jul 3 13:01:40 PDT 2003 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/SPITFIRE i386 --- Lou On Thu, 3 Jul 2003, Joshua Oreman wrote: > On Thu, Jul 03, 2003 at 01:35:51AM -0700 or thereabouts, Tak Pui LOU wrote: > > Hi Josh, > > > > Thanks.
