Description Domagoj Smolčić 2011-08-27 19:40:10 UTC
If mdconfig bin, is now smart enough to load vnode images, via:
# mdconfig -f /usr/my.img
As options '-a' and '-t vnode' are implied, instead old:
# mdconfig -a -t vnode -f /usr/my.img

Then why scripts:
Aren't aware of this?

This would fail: (rc.conf)
mdconfig_md0="-f /usr/my.img"

Because "${_type}" variable gets value '-f'

dmesg: ()
Creating md0 device (-f).
could not open /usr/my.img
No such file or directory
Creating md0 device failed, moving on.
