Installer fails to see OpenBSD

Postby breaker » 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.

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....

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

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