- Code: Select all
cannot determine filesystem type
As it turns out, running [FILE]fsck_ffs[/FILE] instead worked fine and the drives mounted okay. I gather that between 6.2 and 8.2, [FILE]fsck[/FILE] tried to get "smarter" but not smart enough to figure out to use [FILE]fsck_ffs[/FILE] with these drives. Also the use of the 'c' partition is now (weakly) prohibited.
It would be nice to be able to "restore" 8.2 [FILE]fsck[/FILE]'s ability to realize that these are FFS filesystems. Any clues as to how? (I guess I could read the code to see what it is trying to test.)
