I'm using 9.0 and the command below does not work, as far I remember
that worked fine with 8.2:
The goal is to copy an usb image from an OpenBSD host to an usb key on
my desktop via ssh.
# cat ucop2.img | ssh patrick at xx dd of=/dev/da0 bs=10M
dd: /dev/da0: Invalid argument
0+5 records in
0+4 records out
81920 bytes transferred in 0.107747 secs (760299 bytes/sec)
With a file that works:
# cat ucop2.img | ssh patrick at xx dd of=ucop2.img
and then a dd to the key works fine.
And yes /dev/da0 is writable by all:
# ls -la /dev/da0*
crw-rw-rw- 1 root operator 0, 132 5 déc 09:45 /dev/da0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root operator 0, 133 5 déc 09:45 /dev/da0s4
There are some kernel messages on the FreeBSD box but I think this is
harmless because this is an OpenBSD partition:
GEOM_PART: integrity check failed (da0s4, BSD)
