I followed the instructions exactly.. I moved my root from ad0s2e to ad0s1a, hoping that it would fix things.
Now the bootloader just gives me "Not ufs" Ad0s2e doesn't work anymore either. (No /boot/loader -- it worked before, thought) Currently, my computer can't be used!! Nooo!!

I'm using 5_1_releng at the moment, with no evident problems. My Settings are: /dev/ad0s2e on / (ufs, local, soft-updates) devfs on /dev (devfs, local) /dev/ad0s1g on /home (ufs, local, soft-updates) <--- Shared /dev/ad0s2h on /usr (ufs, local, soft-updates) /dev/ad0s2f on /var (ufs, local, soft-updates) procfs on /proc (procfs, local) /dev/ad0s1h on /usr/ports/distfiles (ufs, local, soft-updates) <--- Shared /dev/ad0s1d on /bleh (ufs, local, soft-updates) <--- Stray ... Additional partions from disklabel: ad0s1a <none> 400 ad0s1e <none> 64 ad0s1f <none> 256 The aforementioned shared slices used to belong to my 4_Stable Partition that I had initially installed as the main o/s. A fortnight ago, I decided to test 5_1_releng out on some extra space that I had assigned to document-storage. The installation went Great! I had all the functionality of 4-Stable, with a few added benefits. Apparently, it went so smoothly that I had now decided to use ad0s1's (original slice) greater storage capacity to migrate my /usr & /var over. I will still keep my root partition intact on slice ad0s2e, and I was hoping that there was some way I could painlessly migrate over the settings. In essence, what I'm trying to do is: Merge space from unused ad0s1; newfs to ufs2; Create new /usr partition based on ad0s1's given space; Create new /var partition " Configure Loader to only recognise the 5_1_releng partition. I understand the implications of this procedure. Namely, I'll lose a Stable Partition, whilst having to deal with Current's quirks. This isn't a production server, it's more of a hobby machine where I can learn how to implement commands, and understand coding structure/debug/fix. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
