And does this 160gb disk contain one big FAT32 filesystem? OpenBSD
can't mount FAT32 filesystems larger than 128gb. I've had the same
problem (it's in the archives somewhere), and splitting the large
disk into two partitions worked fine for me.
Also, I've had no problems with a single, large FFS filesystem. But
if you need FAT32 for portability, the only thing you can do is
keep your filesystems <128gb if you want to mount them on OpenBSD.
Thank you Sebastiaan :-)
it works with 2 partitions under OpenBSD... but in freebsd doesn't :-(
: FreeBSD tells there is only one partition and doesn't let it to mount.
Do you know why?.
