Hi Simon,

disklabel64 is now the default in DFBSD. If I edit the label:

vmware# disklabel -e da1s1
16 partitions:
#          size     offset    fstype   fsuuid
#a:          4g          0    4.2BSD
a:          *           *    HAMMER

vmware# disklabel da1s1 | grep -v '^#'
diskid: 46d8283c-7705-11e0-996e-010c29c5ae30
boot2 data base:      0x000000001000
partitions data base: 0x000000100200
partitions data stop: 0x01f3ffd3a000
backup label:         0x01f3ffd3a000
total size:           0x01f3ffd3b800    # 2047997.23 MB
alignment: 4096
display block size: 1024        # for partition display only

16 partitions:
  a: 2097148132          0    HAMMER    # 2047996.223MB
  a-stor_uuid: 5a870493-7705-11e0-996e-010c29c5ae30

Automatic sizing seems to work, how did you do it?

About the aligning thing I think there have been some changes since you opened
