Description Vadim K. 2013-08-08 08:40:02 UTC
Documentation at:

Section: EXAMPLES contains example of getting back to non-interactive booting by 
fdisk -B ad0

But this example will not work without setting kern.geom.debugflags=16


Please, add extra lines to this example. Like:

sysctl kern.geom.debugflags=16
fdisk -B ad0
sysctl kern.geom.debugflags=0

Probably it will save a lot of time for people searching why fdisk -B ad0 not workig ....
