Description

I'm not an advanced nix user and I think an addition is required on this page in the handbook:

https://www.dragonflybsd.org/docs/handbook/UnixBasics/#index22h3

The section "Adding disks" covers setting up the slices, however it does not mention having to use newfs (or newfs_hammer in my case) to finally have the disk ready for use.

I'd suggest just adding a one liner to the effect of - to finalise/format your disk you must use newfs and offer an example or link to the documentation.

Sorry for the late reply.

The DragonFly site (and the handbook) is a wiki. So you can just create an account and update the documentation.

Thanks.

Hi Aaron,

I wasn’t aware I could edit it - I didn’t think a numpty like me would be allowed ;)

Done now, kept it short and sweet.

Regards,
Ian
