Now, how could I be logged in? from livefs?
On bootup, I see ar0 boot error or something like that...
ls /dev ... shows ad0, ad10, ad12, ad4 and ar0
ad0 only has ad0s1 (I assume this to be ntfs
ad10 also has s1, s1a, s1b, c, d, e, e, suffixes
ad4 has s1, s1a, s1b, no c, but d, e, f suffixes
The stench from Denmark is getting to me... ;-)
