Re: disklabel corrupt?

:I tried to look into the archives for more infomation, but I couldn't
:find any. I did a clean install from a df 2004.11.26 gcc2 snap iso.
:When booting my FreeBSD system on the same disk, it printed messages
:saying that "ad0s2 disklabel corrupt." That's the DragonFly slice.
:Moreover, I was unable to mount any df filesystem in FreeBSD. This
:includes mounting in both fbsd 4.10 and freesbie's fbsd 5.2.1. But the
:disks were fully operational under df.
:Has anyone else had this problem? Unfortunately, I needed an OS
:quickly for school work, so I threw on fbsd 5.3. If you need more
:debugging, I'll try to do it this weekend. Let me know.

    FreeBSD is probably complaining because the DragonFly disklabel
    supports 16 partitions instead of 8.  There isn't really anything
    we can do about it here, FreeBSD would have to add support for
    that (which is possible, but probably ~2 hours worth of work).
