Sorry for the poor subject. Thanks for reading.
I'm using this page as a guide but am at the console so I'm just using
the Fix It CD:
I'm attempting to install FBSD 7.2 64bit on a fresh machine. The
machine has 3 500G drives and 1 750G drive. I'm trying to mirror root
with gmirror. Following the examples, I've used fdisk to create one
slice for each drive that uses the entire disk. Next I used bsdlabel
and created 500M a: partitions on two of the drives (ad6 & ad8).
However /dev/ad6s1a and /dev/ad8s1a do not exist. I do have entries such
as /dev/ad6a and/dev/ad8a but gmirror doesn't like those. What must I do
the get them to show after I've labeled?
