Well, I'm CVS'ing the source as we speak. Hey, I may actually go home
and work on that problem set now. 8)
But here's the one problem I mentioned earlier. I've got two drives.
When I set up OpenBSD on wd0 I had it make root, swap and /usr
partitions. Set everything. I then had setup go to town on wd1 and
make a root and swap partition.
Why? Well, I edited the disktab for wd1 and changed wd0b from a swap
partition to a 4.2BSD partition. Why? Well, I'm used to having the
machine set up with /, /usr, and /var on the big disk (wd0), and /tmp
and swap on the other one (wd1). I guess it's just a case of teaching
an old dog a new trick. Well, I also like to make life difficult for
Of course I'm getting the following output:
swapon: /dev/wd1b: device not configured
mount_ffs: /dev/wd0b on /var: Device busy
So, do I need to recreate these devices somehow? I figure the swapon
one may just be because I need to recompile the kernel and tell the
kernel to swap on wd1. Is this a good guess?
But I'll be honest, I've got no idea where I'm getting the second error
message from. Should I newfs /dev/wd0b? Do I need to recreate or tweak
it's device? Maybe it just wants a good spanking?
Anyway, thanks for listening to my rambling and I look forward to any
and all pointers.
