I just finished installing FreeBSD 5.4 on my PC. When i boot it
normally all of the startup scripts finish, no errors are displayed but
afterwards a login prompt fails to appear. If i boot in single user mode
I get my '#' prompt right off the bat and can edit files. What is going
on? Does my machine think I have a terminal connected to the serial
port? What config file do i need to edit?
I used standard install method from CD. I'm running an Nforce2 chipset
and my HDD is SATA, but FreeBSD seems to be dealing with these just fine.
