Subject: base: Any call to mount returns /dev/<device name> : No such device

Package: base
Severity: grave

Dear Maintainer,


   * What led up to the situation?
     While attempting to mount a second hard disk which contains some
     data I recieved "No such device" error. 
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
     ineffective)?
     I confirmed both that the device exists and had not been acidently erased
     through installing gparted I confirmed that the device /dev/ad1s2 was
     present on the disk and valid. I called the stat command stat /dev/ad1s2 
     to validate that the device file existed. stat printed out valid 
     information about the file. I attempted to validate that I had permission
     to mount. both using sudo, and running mount as root after using su root.
    
   * What was the outcome of this action?
     There was no specific outcome of this action. The problem persists the
     only file system that was able to be mounted was root. No other file
     system can be mounted on the system anywhere my any user with any
     level of permission. 

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
     To successfully mount the file system on my second partition.

     Further notes. I have not changed this file system during the os install
     it is on a seperate hard disk. Not that the disk also as a fat file
     system, and a btrfs file system on it. Neither were able to mount either.
     Furthermore, the file system I was attempting to mount is an active root
     partition for a debian instance which can successfully boot if I rebot 
     the system.

[Oops, I sent this to the wrong bug address. Resending to the correct 
one, for the record.]

Hi John-Charles,

I'm reassigning this bug to kfreebsd-8 on the basis that that's where the 
following similar bug report was filed:
  http://bugs.debian.org/593733
I don't think it's the same bug, though. But hopefully this should get it 
visible by a kFreeBSD user or developer, who can reassign it elsewhere (the 
mount command, perhaps?) if this is incorrect.
