NetBSD 1.6_BETA5 NetBSD 1.6_BETA5 (GENERIC) #0: Tue Jul 30 12:29:28 EST 2002 grant@mofo:/raid/netbsd/netbsd-1-6/20020729/sparc64/obj/sys/arch/sparc64/compile/GENERIC sparc64
While using the disklabel editor, I changed my mind about which
partition I wanted to be root. I changed a's mount point to be / and
tried to remove h's mount point by simply pressing <enter> at the
mount point prompt. This did not clear the mount point, it just left
I then changed it to ' ' (space), which was visually "correct", but
both a and h were mounted on /mnt.
/dev/sd0a 254119 1 241412 0% /mnt
/dev/sd0h 97919 4 93019 0% /mnt
(sd0h is mounted on top of sd0a, making sd0a inaccessible).
attempt to change some duplicate mountpoints in sysinst, notice that
the result are not what you might expect.
correctly undef mount points (maybe 'none' or something?). check for
duplicate mount points.
