How can I get the OS to boot? Uhmp, is this typo? ^^^^^^^ Lable "b" is swap-reserved (e.g da0s1b)
Create one slice for the whole disk (da0s1) and one label for / (da0s1a) one for swap (da0s1b) and at least one label for /usr (da0s1d on 5.x otherwise ad0s1e). da0s1c reflects "the whole" disk. If you're new to FreeBSD figure out the difference between slice and label resp. partitions. -Harry > > _______________________________________________ > [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to > "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
