Re: Using NetBSD-7 on a RPiB+

I've always done without the -n. Is there anything in the cache to flush, given that the only file-system mounted is / and it is read-only?

There were some issues with resize_ffs on rpi a while back (mmc driver bug), but they have since been resolved.

The wiki still says to use 'resize_ffs' followed by 'reboot'. I recall a discussion indicating the need for 'reboot -n', though. Is there any clarity on which is correct? In any case, when I tried this earlier it didn't work either way so I'm confused also. Can someone confirm the correct set of commands?
