Not sure if y'all saw the announcement on the freebsd-hackers list:
Unfortunately, there are a couple of regressions in the BETA1 install
iso from the last iso I put up, so I'd recommend giving this one a miss
and waiting for the next beta build, unless you want to upgrade and are
prepared for some of the annoyances. They are:
- Filesystem info isn't written out correctly to /etc/fstab. The
kernel will drop into the mountroot> prompt since the loader can't find
the root filesystem.
workaround: manually specify the root filesystem at the mountroot>
prompt, and then edit /etc/fstab once the system has booted.
- The ttys file should have the ttya/ttyb entries removed. There will
be console message printed complaining that they can't be opened.
workaround: manually edit /etc/ttys to remove said lines.
- The OpenFirmware syscons code spits out some kernel printfs when
going to multi-user
workaround: none, these can be ignored.
- sysinstall prints the GEM ethernet as <unknown interface type>
workaround: none, can be ignored.
These will be fixed in the next beta release.
