Yesterday I was upgrading the disk in one of my workstations. Since I was planning on growing the filesystems for my FreeBSD install at the same time, I needed to manually create a new disklabel. I used sysinstall for this, but ran into a problem: sysinstall doesn't allocate the partition letters, with 'a' first, if you aren't doing an initial install. I ended up using the "auto defaults" option to create the 'a' partition, then remove everything and create them as I wanted. I'm glad to say that it worked out just fine, but this problem raises a couple of questions:
Why does sysinstall behave differently when run post-install? How do I manually specify or change the partition letter to use? _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
