Sorry for the subject (but due to the late hour and the fact that a
simple upgrade took 7 hours instead of 30 minutes ....)
I've installed/upgraded OpenBSD 2.5 on 10 machines until now (a couple
of 2.3 and the rest 2.4 to 2.5). In all but one computer when installboot
ran it caused problems: Totally erasing the partition table leaving all
partitions with ID 0 most times, or a couple of other times it trashed the
partition table so it showed junk instead of what was just a second
before. Did any experience any such problems on i386 machines?
I haven't filed a bug yet (didn't have the opportunity to learn
what exactly is wrong, all upgrades were on production machines at
client's sites). Did any experience any such problems on i386 machines?
