Re: RELEASE UPDATE TO 1.0A - issue with installer corrupting slices

    I don't think it's related to the particular issue in 1.0A unless you were
    using the installer way back then.  The corruption you are describing
    does sound like overlapping partitions or slices, however, and you should
    definitely use fdisk to display your slice layout and see if there are
    any overlaps.

:Is this possibly related to the RAID-0 (Promise 20276 onboard controller  
:chip) breakage I experience each time I try to mount the array from  
:DragonFly (which is installed on a third non-RAIDed drive)?  It occurs  
:instantly upon issuing the mount command, whether I try to mount_ntfs the  
:Win2000 slice or mount the (UFS1) FBSD-CURRENT slice.  The first 2-3 times  
:the array breaks I can build it again in the RAID BIOS and recover, but  
:eventually the corruption is too extensive and the only solution is to  
:wipe the drives with IBM's DFT and restore from backups.
:The breakage does not occur when I issue the mount_ntfs command from FBSD.
:This has been occurring for a long while.  I did not experience the  
:problem with the May 10th snapshot, but when I tried the next stable  
:snapshot (May 22nd or thereabouts?) in early June, that's when it started
