NEWFS_SYSVBFS(8) BSD System Manager's Manual NEWFS_SYSVBFS(8)NAME
newfs_sysvbfs -- construct a new System V Boot File System
newfs_sysvbfs [-FZ] [-s sectors] special
newfs_sysvbfs builds a System V boot file system on the specified special. If it is a device, the size information will be taken from the
disk label and before running newfs_sysvbfs the disk must be labeled using disklabel(8); the proper fstype is ``SysVBFS''. Otherwise, the
size must be specified on the command line.
The following arguments are supported:
-F Create file system to a regular file.
-s sectors Create file system with specified number of disk sectors.
-Z Fill file with zeroes instead of creating a sparse file.
SEE ALSO disklabel(5), disktab(5), disklabel(8), diskpart(8)HISTORY
A newfs_sysvbfs command first appeared in NetBSD 4.0.
The sysvbfs support is still experimental and there are few sanity checks.

MOUNT_SYSVBFS(8) BSD System Manager's Manual MOUNT_SYSVBFS(8)NAME
mount_sysvbfs -- mount a System V Boot File System
mount_sysvbfs [-o options] special node
The mount_sysvbfs command attaches the System V Boot File System on the special device on to the file system tree at point node. Both
special and node are converted to absolute paths before use.
This command is normally executed by mount(8) at boot time. The options are as follows:
-o Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a comma separated string of options. See the mount(8) man page for possible options
and their meanings.
SEE ALSO mount(2), unmount(2), fstab(5), mount(8)HISTORY
A mount_sysvbfs command first appeared in NetBSD 4.0.
The sysvbfs support is still experimental and there are few sanity checks, so it is possible for a corrupted file system to cause a crash.

I've been reading the AIX 5.1 System Concepts PDF but I'm still confused about some file-system concepts and their relationships.

How are 'disk allocation unit'/'fragment size', NBPI and 'allocation group size'?
And how are the above three... (2 Replies)
I have two hhd's. One is primary disk which holds the OpenBSD system and the other is my download disk (disk2).

The disklabel program says "No change made", but I can see the changes by "p" command.
I cannot mount my disk2!... (1 Reply)

I have a crappy hard disk and am trying to back up stuff from it onto my newer hopefully less crappy disk. There are dead sectors on the disk and some files can't be read (at all) so OpenBSD downgrades the transfer mode down until PIO mode 4. I noticed the transfer speed slowing down... (0 Replies)
