DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2004-06
Dragonfly installer beta
i wanted to report a problem about the latest installer version
(i have also downloaded the 1.0RC and i will test is as thoroughly
as possible). Well, i have tried it on vmware and encountered what i think is
a problem :-)
If you dedicate all disk to dfly, all goes well. But i insisted to write
to a partition, and then hell ensues.
First vmware comes with a virtual disk without partition table.
Half of the Linux distros choke on that: you need to exit the installer
and run fdisk manually to write a partition table. Same thing with
dragonfly. But there it is worse. Entering the installer anew
(it took me some time to find it is called "installer" ) disklabel was
then able to write the label on ad0s4.
But then newfs failed! This is because /dev/ad0s4a etc. don't exist. I
had to exit the installer once more and enter it again to complete the
