It's true that something probably should be done.
In the specific case of the Raspberry Pi, it would be nice to just
boot a regular sysinst from an SD card, then do the install to a USB
disk of some sort (since you can get ones with large storage). At that
point I wouldn't mind leaving a small SD card in the machine whose
sole purpose is to boot and mount root from the USB disk. Or I
suppose the hardware could possibly be hacked to boot directly from
But for other devices which don't have a nice console, I completely
agree. What you said is easier than trying to get a console and
netboot a ramdisk kernel or something. That is a large barrier to
It is trivial to fix. First remove "log" from the root partition and reboot.
(there is a bug that makes mount -u -o nolog / crash). After you reboot...
# shutdown // to single user
# disklabel -i ld0
A<enter> // autosize
end: $<enter> // resize to physical
end: $<enter> // or to whatever you want to resize.
# resize_ffs /dev/rld0a // to the size of the partition you set.
power off, no syncing.
Don't add back -o log, it makes things crash on the nightly run. I've
been running with.
I tried that and got "BAD SUPER BLOCK: VALUES IN SUPER BLOCK DISAGREE
WITH THOSE IN FIRST ALTERNATE"-Errors. After resize_ffs i also tried
to check for errors but nothing could be found. Anyone else ran into
