Not unless someone did the work to integrate gpt into the installer.
No way I'll have anything definitive in time, so not to worry.
I'm working with manual approach on FreeBSD, trialing editing and
migration using DragonFlyBSD on FreeBSD-created GPT and the reverse.
Just about to introduce NetBSD-current into that mix. OpenBSD 'later' if
What I am after is an 'agnostic' stand-alone-capable maintenance toolset
to support both portability/sharing of 'data' storage (UFS "1" if need
be) and multi-boot. I'm hoping to side-step the NIH legacy disklabel
disjoint between/among the *BSD's.
Looks to be more a scripting exercise than coding - the tools are
generally already there in each OS.
