I just downloaded the latest 10 preview and was fond of the new hybrid install image format. Really cool! What I would like to know is:
1. Will the release version include a live system?
2. Could someone enlighten me how to create such hybrid images myself under PC-BSD or FreeBSD? gpart
reveals a GPT partitioning scheme with just one freebsd-boot partition and unallocated space:
# gpart show da0
=> 34 31268797 da0 GPT (15G) [CORRUPT]
34 128 1 freebsd-boot (64K)
162 31268669 - free - (15G)
But which boot code is used to boot off the raw part and how does the whole work?
3. KDE automatically detects and mounts the volume. What is the logic behind this and how could I mount it manually if no partition exists?
