            Bug ID: 209540
           Summary: Partitioning and USB Sticks
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.3-RELEASE
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---
         Component: misc
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org

I need to configure an OS such that all OS-related files are on a set of disks
A and all user data is on a set of disks B. This is not up for discussion, or
whether it makes sense, it is just what the requirements are. No matter what I
try, it is not achievable. I need GRUB, OS, swap and everything else related to
FreeBSD on a set A and everything else including /home and /usr on a set B.
Also, the build times are excessive. I tried and failed to build KDE on X11,
and after 27 hours on a 32 core 144 GB RAM system the build failed. SAMBA was
built, but it took over 30 minutes. Building VirtualBox took over 90 minutes,
until it failed with a very descriptive Error 1. The instructions in the
documentation on how to mount a USB memory stick (as root) are incorrect as
well and non-workable. The commands posted in the documentation have nothing to
do with the actual commands and even man pages suggest a different syntax and
option set. Trying to build the Adaptec Storage Manager resulted in utter
failure as well. The source could be retrieved and the ASM and the drivers
validated, but the build simply never terminated. In general, I find that the
documentation has deteriorated a lot since version 5.4 which I used to run (and
I just shut down a server from that time that had never failed).
