as punishment, here is yet another email
so i have it all partitioned using fixit/dist.
ad4p1 64k freebsd-boot
ad4p2 64g freebsd-zfs (to use as zfs mirror)
ad4p3 64g freebsd-swap
ad4p4 2tb freebsd-zfs (to use as raidz2)
same for ad5. ad6 and ad7 have only p1 to join the raidz2.
but i can not build the boot zfs mirror because i can not follow the
because fixit/dist is a world where i can not mount the zfs pool because
/ is read-only md0. so i can not set up the bootable zfs mirror system.
and, to add to the fun. due to time pressure, i go to back off to my
old faithful hack of small gmirrored boot partitions with big zfs. i dd
whomp the base drives (dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/da4 count=1000000). but
it seems not to stomp them. the sysinstall fdisk partiton editor keeps
coffee or sleep, tough call.
