DragonFly users List (threaded) for 2009-02
. .or perhaps not..
Have 120 GB HDD sliced for:
- DFLY with hammerfs
FreeBSD installed last.
Unfortunately, did not think to do the within-slice partitioning for
FreeBSD with DragonFly's modern toolset (..once bitten..)
Ergo, though I had FreeBSD NOT write bootblock or touch the MBR, it did
munge the disklabel..
The DFLY bootloader I was using now throws 'invalid partition' and DFLY
liveCD disklabel reports 'Bad magic number' for that slice.
Is there a way to edit that back to bootability w/o wiping out a full
day's worth of installing Xfce4 and friends onto the hammerfs?
No backups - R&D critter only.
OTOH, no critical data, either - just pkg_add'ing everything I could
think of to stress recent 2.3 DEVELOPMENT snapshot for prime-time-ability.
Which looks *very* good, BTW...
