:Thanks matt for the long explanation. :-)
:Currently I update the contents of the second disk by mounting it
:under /mnt/2ndDisk and chrooting to it. So in future upgrades when I
:chroot should devfs be mounted on /mnt/2ndDisk/dev inorder for
:buildworld and build kernel to suceed proprely?
Yes. The easiest way is to simply use 'mount_null /dev /mnt/2ndDisk/dev'
after mounting the second disk.
And, of course, to umount /mnt/2ndDisk/dev before umount /mnt/2ndDisk.
Anything you chroot to will need its own devfs mount, either using
mount_null of /dev onto the target dev or (more directly) mount_devfs
on the target dev.
