I know we switched back to UFS +softupdates but I ran into problems with
the journaling when we were testing that with 08082008. I have three
FreeBSD partitions running on the same disk here. A plain 6.3 that I had
used as my "safe" partition, a PCBSD1.5.1 and a small 10GB PCBSD7
08082008. partition. In order to make a few things accessible from all
three partitions I have one slice( subslice?) designated as /pub on the
plain 6.3FreeBSD. Not having had problems before I also made a couple
more partitions avaialble to the PCBSD7 by putting them accessible in
/etc/fstab. and the PCBSD7 partition available to the 6.3FreeBSD partition.
after a coule of reboots and a couple switches back and forth, THe
PCBSD7 partpition was complaining of some kind of failure and so was the
So, the questions arise,
1. Is there any way to /fsck /a UFS+journaing partition?
2. Was there anything published about not doing what I did?
3. Should they have affected each other?
I dont know if this is related or not, but I have developed a strong
preference for a "Clean Install" after having dealt with vagaries in XP
over the last year. I know in Freebsd when you assign lables you can tag
a slice to be newfs, which I believe entails a format of some kind. I
could be wrong. But when I installed 08152008, it seems I had to do it
twice to get a good install.
