System: FreeBSD palm.hoeg.nl 6.2-STABLE FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE #0: Fri Apr 20 13:44:49 CEST 2007 root at palm.hoeg.nl:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/PALM i386
>Description:
The geom(8) utilities depend on the modules that are present in
/lib/geom. For some reason, /lib doesn't seem to exist in the Fixit
environment on the livefs, which causes geom(8) utilities to
malfunction.
>How-To-Repeat:
Run glabel(8) inside the livefs. You are not capable of creating new
labels.
>Fix:
The following patch will cause the shell to automatically set the
GEOM_LIBRARY_PATH variable, which causes the utilities to work properly.
