I have tried many of the ftp sites enumerated in sysinstall, with both
7.4-RELEASE and 8.2-RELEASE, and in all cases the installation proceeds
for a few seconds and then hangs, with the last message on the console
DEBUG: Generating /etc/fstab file.
This happens with several different systems. I believe it is not any
hardware problem, since I was able to install 7.4 from NFS. (I have
unrelated problems with 8.2).
If I ftp to any of the mentioned FreeBSD ftp servers under manual control,
I have no trouble downloading ISO files. The ftp sites tried include
ftp.freebsd.org and ftp10.us.freebsd.org. We have no firewall or
proxy regulating outbound connections.
Is there something off about the sysinstall ftp dialog? I don't see a way
to monitor what is happening.
