Comment 1 Alexey Dokuchaev freebsd_committer 2021-07-09 09:05:21 UTC
Indeed, it also uses old adX for ATA disks and enumerates SCSI ones incorrectly in the example:

Third SCSI disk is not da0, but da2.  I'll see what I can do.

    sysutils/linuxfdisk: the port had been further improved (+)

    - When printing usage information, give proper references to the
      programs installed by this port, to avoid possible confusion with
      similarly named FreeBSD native ones
    - Use modern /dev/adaX names for ATA disks in the examples rather
      than legacy /dev/adX which do not exist since 2015
    - Do not hardcode UTIL_LINUX_VERSION, its value is correctly passed
      on the command line during the build

Should be fixed now, I believe; please let me know if I've missed anything.

Thanks for fixing so quickly!
