Read-Only Filesystem in VirtualBox²

Hi there,
I tried to install archBSD in a Virtual Machine, but arch always says that it's failed to open the device for writing.

I don't want to capture the other Thread, so I created this one.
If my decision was wrong, teach me something better.

So I post the Output of the given questions here:

Can you confirm that /etc/fstab has entries to mount /var as read / write

Yep, it looks exactly like the given example.

Also can you confirm that there is space free on the devices and that enough memory is used on the virtual machine:

It's a new VirtualMachine with 50G, so this shouldn't be the problem.
I downloaded the older archBSD-image, but that one didn't work too.

I hope you'll be able to help, because archBSD sound very interesting (I'm using ArchLinux in the moment).
Sorry for bad english, I'm german smile

cheers,

Re: Read-Only Filesystem in VirtualBox²

Ok today I tried to install archbsd using ufs and it worked!
Now I know that "newfs -U -j -L root /dev/ada0pX" is only for ufs, not for zfs.

So this was my mistake not archbsd's big_smile

But the Read-Only problem is still weird.
If I use the zpool-create command it just says that it wasn't able to create a /tank directory..

Any suggestions?

Re: Read-Only Filesystem in VirtualBox²

Yeah, / is readonly on the ISO as not to have a huge memory requirement. Only certain directories are rw/ such as /var etc and where ever you mount your drives.

You'll find that guide helpful.
