sysinstall isn't really intended for post-install use: you should probably 
learn how to use gpart instead - e.g.

gpart create -s mbr /dev/disk
gpart add -t freebsd /dev/disk
gpart create -s bsd /dev/disk
gpart add -t freebsd-ufs /dev/disks1

newfs /dev/disks1a

Bruce,

Thanks for the reply. Is there any document explaining this in more
detail as the man page of gpart(8). The FreeBSD Handbook in chaptar 18.3
points still to sysinstall(8) and bsdlabel(8)...

Thanks

	matthias

Thanks for your suggestions, anyhow.  It might very well be that something
about the server's behaviour is awkward. fetchmail, which worked well

Thanks your for the explanation. I was actually not sure whether or not
these options were needed. Authentication to the smarthost did not work,
and at one point I noticed the line:

<...>
250-AUTH GSSAPI NTLM
<...>

coming from the server. So I gave it a try - and it still did not work.

The documentation for gpart is still rather poor, and I'm not aware of any 
official documentation. I wrote a more detailed post in 
http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-fs/2010-August/009176.html which 
explains the commands.

Combining the above and your posting in
http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-fs/2010-August/009176.html
for my case I should have done:

# gpart create -s mbr ad4                 # Init the disk with an MBR
# gpart add -t freebsd ad4                # Create a BSD container
# gpart create -s bsd ad4s1               # Init with a BSD scheme
# gpart add -t freebsd-ufs  -s 1G ad4s1   # 1GB for /
# gpart add -t freebsd-swap -s 2G ad4s1   # 2GB for swap
# gpart add -t freebsd-ufs  -s 2G ad4s1   # 2GB for /var
# gpart add -t freebsd-ufs  -s 1G ad4s1   # 1GB for /tmp
# gpart add -t freebsd-ufs ad4s1          # all rest for /usr

Since you're creating the bsd scheme inside the freebsd container, you would 
use ad4s1.

Maybe sade  (sysadmins disk editor) would help too... looks like
sysinstall's disk part..

Android usb tethering


	Anyone tried the data tethering feature on the Android phones?

	I've tried cdce and tried modifying cdce but no luck. I need to
regenerate the device list, but I haven't had any luck yet- simply
running make doesn't work, and I've read Makefiles and googled out the
wazoo.

	I tried modifying the details off the openmoko site for their data
tether system (for FreeBSD8, mind), still no luck.

	Apparently it uses the cdc_ether RNDIS according to my Fedora shit
media system. usbconfig concurs.

	Any hints, suggestions on how to further my investigations and
getting this thing working? Anyone happen to be working on this?
	Cheers

Newer Sambas and PAM

Hello.

I'd like to have every service on my systems authenticating via Samba 
(through PAM).

With older, now deprecated, 3.0.x version, I did this through 
security/pam_smb: no problems at all.

Since 3.0 was removed, I tried upgrading to 3.4 on one box: since then I 
am not able to authenticate anything through PAM against it.

Is anyone doing this? How?

  bye & Thanks
	av.
