Re: Manually creating slices

I've run into a problem with gpt. I installed NetBSD on another hard
drive, since the install CD doesn't appear to have either dkctl or gpt,
and when I try to run gpt on ld0, I get the following errors:
#gpt create -f ld0
gpt: unable to open device 'rld0d': no such file or directory
I tried opening ld0 with fdisk (#fdisk ld0), and it works just fine. Am
I missing something?
Just an update: since I'm installing from scratch anyway, and don't need
sysinst, I decided to just go with MBR partitions. Even though the
NetBSD fdisk uses signed ints, I was able to create a NetBSD primary
partition from a Linux LiveCD. I then booted back into NetBSD, and was
successful in getting disklabel to create one large root partition as I
had originally desired.
I'd still like to eventually figure out why gpt didn't work, but for now
things are finally starting to move along. Now, I just have to finish
the rest of the install without the aid of sysinst (wish me luck! ;)
Thanks for all the help so far. I'm learning a lot.
