Re: trouble installing to 1.5TB drive

The clue there is the "netbsd-5-0" stanza. As Joerg says this is a known
issue in the netbsd-5-0 branch (i.e. NetBSD 5.0, NetBSD 5.0.1 and the
upcoming NetBSD 5.0.2). If you look for the netbsd-5 branch (i.e. what
will become NetBSD 5.1 soon) you will find it works fine (I can confirm it
works on 2TB drives).

Sorry, but that is not true for fdisk.
I still need to confirm that the patch compiles on netbsd-5 before the pullup
for port-i386/42483 can be done.

OK, to be more clear, sysinst and most parts of disklabel and fdisk work fine. I know of two outstanding problems (neither of which affect sysinst doing a 'normal' installation):
- fdisk in interactive mode (PR#42483 as above)
- disklabel in interactive mode (-i)

I bet with the fdisk PR a workaround would be to use batch mode rather than interactive mode (-s type/offset/size).
