First of all, Linux detects the partitions:

sdg1: <solaris: [s0] sdg5 [s1] sdg6 [s2] sdg7 [s8] sdg8 >

However, FreeBSD 9.0 shows only the main partition. Is it possible that only Solaris labels for sparc64 are supported?

Not sure about the FreeBSD but does FreeBSD has the capability of reading Solaris Disk Labels? Linux does for sure. –  Karlson Feb 26 '12 at 1:54

What's the value of kern.features.geom_sunlabel? –  Karlson Feb 26 '12 at 17:00
@Karlson — it depends on whether geom_sunlabel is loaded or not. It's 1 when it's loaded. –  poige Feb 27 '12 at 5:32
And is it loaded? –  Karlson Feb 27 '12 at 20:18
