I have a machine running FreeBSD 7.3 which was just rebooted for the first time in about a year(rebooted it in my efforts to get it backed up -- as it isn't presently -- so I can replace it) and now will not boot.

GEOM: provider: the primary GPT table is corrupt or invalid. GEOM: provider: using the secondary instead -- recovery strongly advised.
listdisplay all the (apparently correct) details for the partition table on that disk, but my
gpartutility lacks a
$ gpart recover gpart: Unknown command: recover.
