I just installed 5.0-RELEASE, and I have been having trouble mounting my Linux
/home partition. It is a logical ext3 partition, which Linux called
/dev/hda7 . I've been getting the following error:
# mount -t ext2fs /dev/ad0s7 /mnt
ext2fs: /dev/ad0s7: No such file or directory
But the device is there, as evidenced by
# ls -l /dev/ad0s7
crw-r----- 1 root operator 4, 7 Apr 28 17:20 /dev/ad0s7
In fact all the slice/partition devices I'd expect are present, so it would
seem that the kernel is reading the entire partition table correctly.
I read through the archives, and the consensus seems to be that ext3 and ext2
filesystems should be interchangeable. So I don't think that's the issue.
