Latest amd64 snapshot has problems with disk sizes
Just tried to install current using the latest AMD64 snapshot 201512071640Z
on a blank SATA drive. Boots up off the memory stick OK and after allocating
partitions it fails when trying to newfs the first partition rwd0a. An error:
ioctl DIOCGMEDIASIZE failed 19 appears in the log messages several times.
The first partition (rwd0a) is set to be 512M and the newfs croaks with:
/sbin/newsfs -V2 -O2 -b 8182 -f 1024 /dev/rwd0a
Newfs: size 488397168 exceeds 525168 sector filesystem size on '/dev/rwd0a'
Retrying doesn't work as the installer can no longer see the disk unless the
install is rebooted. I haven't tried setting different partition size for wd0a
as 512M is normally fine for root. Disk is a 232GB Western Digital.
I can send-pr a bug report if required.
