Greetings, I'm trying to setup Vinum on a FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE box, according to the instructions at http://www.vinumvm.org/cfbsd/vinum.txt, pages 236-240, where the idea is to create one big Vinum partition which overlaps all other partitions.
Basically, what I've done so far: In disklabel, created swap first, so it gets offset 0, in the following fashion: Part Mount Size ad0s1b swap 512m ad0s1a / 1024m ad0s1d /home 1024m ad0s1e /tmp 512m ad0s1f /var the rest (6424401 blocks) Booted into single user mode: # mount -u / # bsdlabel -e ad0s1 Shortened swap ('b' partition) by 281s: - 1048576 (original size) - 281 = 1048295 - Changed offset 0 to 281 Created a new partition 'h': - size = 12715857 ('c' partition) - 265 = 12715592 - offset 16 - type vinum Thus, resulting in a bsdlabel output such as this: # bsdlabel ad0s1 # /dev/ad0s1: 8 partitions: # size offset fstype a: 2097152 1048576 4.2BSD b: 1048295 281 swap c: 12715857 0 unused d: 2097152 3145728 4.2BSD e: 1048576 5242880 4.2BSD f: 6424401 6291456 4.2BSD h: 12715592 16 vinum Then, I created a config file for vinum like this: drive YouCrazy device /dev/ad0s1h volume root plex org concat sd len 2097152s driveoffset 1048560s drive YouCrazy volume swap plex org concat sd len 1048295s driveoffset 265s drive YouCrazy volume home plex org concat sd len 2097152s driveoffset 3145712s drive YouCrazy volume tmp plex org concat sd len 1048576s driveoffset 5242864s drive YouCrazy volume var plex org concat sd len 6424401s driveoffset 6291440s drive YouCrazy However, when I run: vinum -> create -f /etc/vinum.conf I get the following output: vinum: drive YouCrazy is up viunm: root.p0.s0 is up viunm: root.p0 is up vinum: root is up vinum: swap.p0.s0 is up vinum: swap.p0 is up vinum: swap is up vinum: home.p0.s0 is up vinum: home.p0 is up vinum: home is up vinum: tmp.p0.s0 is up vinum: tmp.p0 is up vinum: tmp is up vinum: var.p0.s0 is up vinum: var.p0 is up 16: sd len 6424401s driveoffset 6291440s drive YouCrazy** 16 No space for on YouCrazy: No space left on device I've tried this a few times, making sure my calculations are correct, but I always get the same error. I suck at math though, so that might be causing my problem :-P I also tried using 4.9-RELEASE and UFS1, but that didn't help either. Must be something obvious I'm missing. I'd appreciate it if someone could please point me in the right diretion.
