I have one machine with base NetBSD 1.6.1 installed with only one fs - 36GB
# size offset fstype [fsize bsize cpg/sgs]
a: 70589547 63 4.2BSD 4096 32768 64 # (Cyl. 0*- 4393)
b: 1057622 70589610 swap # (Cyl. 4394 - 4459*)
the problem is that I don't have physical access to that machine.
on / is only NetBSD base system without any packages and data - only 166MB
is there any way to preserve first sectors on / to install new kernel in
the future? or maybe there is a method to shrink rw-mounted fs?
can I create there a new root partition located at <1024 without crashing
system - I just want to copy basesystem there, modify disklabel to the new
sd0a point and reboot.
on which sectors I should create that fs to be sure it will boot?
I don't have any other ideas what could I do...please, help me!
