:> on /dev/ad8s2d ? If you do a fresh boot (i.e. never having tried to
:> mount anything using that device), and then issue the dd, does it
:> work differently?
:> Does disklabel recognize the disk?
:> Also try regenerating the /dev entry for ad8s2.
:> cd /dev
:> ./MAKEDEV ad8
:> ./MAKEDEV ad8s2
:> ./MAKEDEV ad8s2a
:I tried most of this, all negative.
:However, I _do_ have some partitions of the ad8s1 slice mounted (/,
:/usr, etc.). Could it be because of this? I would think this shouldn't
:affect partitions on ad8's other slices, right?
:I'll try later from a LiveCD.
Is this on 1.12 or HEAD ? I do recall a bug in the partition-open
bitmap in the disk layer that I'm pretty sure I fixed in HEAD, but
may not have fixed in 1.12. It is possible there is an issue there,
it is worth checking out.
