Installer fails to see OpenBSD

Postby breaker on Tue Jan 05, 2010 3:14 am

A while back when I installed Mint 8 Helena, the installer told me there were no operating systems on a certain disk, but OpenBSD was actually on the disk.

Just thought I'd report the bug, thanks.
rtfm - read the fine manual...

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Might not be a bug - what file system did the OpenBSD use?
I guess that FFS is not supported, at least I don't see it in cat /proc/filesystems
But FFS is not unsupported in general on Linux....

Yes, FFS, that must be the reason for the installer lying to me. :lol:
