I tried to invoke sysinstall to write an additional FreeBSD slice to the disk I was currently booted from.
I intentionally chose the W option to write the changes since I didn't want to do an installtion. But I got an error that I could not write to the disk. Why is that? Because I'm booted from that disk? Or because the can only be one slice? Don't know. Just wondering. Is there a neat fdisk for FreeBSD like the linux fdisk (which is pfdisk derived, I believe). The FreeBSD fdisk is really archaic and I was not able to specify start/end block numbers. The calulated cyl numbers seemed to overlap with the previous partition so I bailed out and left it as it was and put up this question instead. -- Chris Christoph P. U.
