Re: mount question

Hi Andrei,

BSDs use disklabels on top of what one calls partitions. DragonFly in particular uses disklabel64 which Linux has no support for as far as I know.

So the structure would be:

| Partition
|   --------------
|   | disklabel partition
|   |
|   --------------
|   | disklabel partition
|   |
|   --------------
| Partition
| ....

Kind regards, Alex Hornung

During DragonFly installation it ask to set ufs instead of hummer (in view
of lesser 50 Gb drive space) and I agree.

I don't install any bsd boot loaders preferring to setup lilo.

In linux fdisk, bsd partition looks fine:
# fdisk /dev/hdb
Disk /dev/hdb: 40.0 GB, 40020664320 bytes
256 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4846 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16128 * 512 = 8257536 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

    Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hdb1   *           1        4846    39078112+  a5  FreeBSD

To configure lilo I try to mount bsd partition from linux
but it fails:

# mount -t ufs -o ufstype=44bsd /dev/hdb1 bsd
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb1,
        missing codepage or helper program, or other error
        In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
        dmesg | tail  or so

I'm newbie in bsd and need an advice

Thanks in advance
