* Renumber copyright clause 4Warner Losh2017-02-281-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | Renumber cluase 4 to 3, per what everybody else did when BSD granted them permission to remove clause 3. My insistance on keeping the same numbering for legal reasons is too pedantic, so give up on that point.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | go asking what debug flags to set for GEOM to make it work. Advice them to use gpart(8) instead. Something similar should probably done with disklabel, but I need to rewrite the disklabel examples first.

I am not going to bump the man page dates, as these changes can be considered style nits. The meaning of the man pages is unaffected. MFC after: 1 month Notes: svn path=/head/; revision=231564

* Give this manpage a good overhaul, including the markup.Ruslan Ermilov2003-03-151-327/+398
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Notable changes: - Removed the "disktype" argument from the -B only synopsis form. This form doesn't touch the disk label, and doesn't use this argument. - Fixed the first example in the EXAMPLES section. Support for compatibility slices has been recently dropped from the GEOM kernels, and a bit later GEOM became standard. - Removed the buggy notion from rev. 1.37 that disklabel(8) may be used to define mount points; it cannot. Improve some DOS partition / FreeBSD slice wording. Among these, ``dangerously-dedicated slice'' was just a nonsense. ;-) Notes: svn path=/head/; revision=112290

* Retire the "-N" and "-W" options which implemented write-protectionPoul-Henning Kamp2003-01-261-24/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | for the disklabel: This facility is OBE. First of all, we cannot sensibly implement this in a properly stacked environment. Second, if we did, it would confuse the heck out of users who wouldn't be able to "start from scratch" by dd(8)'ing /dev/zero onto /dev/da0. Third, the offered protection is not comprehensive: no other software would respect it. Fourth and finally, the disklabel is already protected against tampering if it controls open partitions.
