Today I tried to install freeBSD on one of my partitions.
I have partionned the whole disk with linux fdisk.
I installed slackware 13.37.0 on /dev/sda1
These are empty (reiserfs-formatted):
/dev/sda2, /dev/sda3, /dev/sda5, /dev/sda6
and /dev/sda7 is a swap partition
When I got to the (freeBSD) fdisk stage, I selected the third partition
(which turned out to be ad4s3 in BSD lingo) and changed its type
to a BSD type (165). Then I pressed 'q' and tried to proceed to the
next stage. But I kept getting messages about chunks to starting
on a track boundary. Something like
chunk 'ad4s1' [...] does not start on a track boundary
chunk 'ad4s2' [...] does not start on a track boundary
I pressed ok, thinking that those are just warnings,
but I couldn't proceed to the next stage.
I'm trying to figure out what to do next (resize partitions
with gparted, or install freeBSD on first partition...)
Has anyone encountered the same problem?
