Re: install/55662: sysinst core dump when installing on Dell R610

Hi Martin,

I'm not surprised it works inside a VM, I guess it has to do with the firmware of the machine.
If it were possible to create an USB installation image with added traces in the kernel/drivers/sysinst, I could repeat the installation and provide you with more useful information.
Or let me know if I can do anything else to help.

 I fail to reproduce this.
 Starting with:
 # gpt show vnd0
        start        size  index  contents
            0           1         PMBR
            1           1         Pri GPT header
            2          32         Pri GPT table
           34  1136641981         Unused
   1136642015          32         Sec GPT table
   1136642047           1         Sec GPT header
 and then:
  You can now change the sizes for the system partitions.  The default is to
  allocate all the space to the root file system.  However, you may wish to
  have separate /usr (additional system files), /var (log files etc) or /home
  (users' home directories) file systems.
  Free space will be added to the partition marked with a '+'.

 Going on I get:
  We now have your GPT partitions for vnd0 below.  This is your last chance to
  change them.

 Selecting ok it creates all partitions and runs multiple newfs and then
 I have:

 /dev/dk9           130924          464       130460   0% /targetroot/mnt
 This is with -current/HEAD, but I tried netbsd-9 and get the same results
 in my test setup. What am I doing differently?
