FreeBSD FeeBSD 7.0-beta1 has been released, with 6.3-beta1 on its way. "We have entered the final phases of the FreeBSD-7.0 Release cycle which also means the beginning of the FreeBSD-6.3 Release cycle. Because the people who support the ports for FreeBSD also need to go through a freeze cycle as part of releases we had decided to combine the two releases to try and minimize the impact on the ports maintainers."

Geometry bug fixed yet?

I'm not trying to be a troll. I used FreeBSD for about a year (version 5.x), but couldn't live with the geometry bug in the installer. Even though it would install OK, it would mess up my Linux partitions (some distros would refuse to run as a result).

The geometry bug has been around for what - 10 or 15 years? OpenBSD does not have this problem. So I'm asking, in all sincerity, will 7.0 finally fix the geometry bug? If so, I'll gladly give it a try. If not, well, I can always wait for 8.x, or 9.x, or ???

What bug? It's showing you these thing because your bios lies about your harddrive.
