Screenshot: FreeBSD installer: network configuration: resolver configuration:
the search field and DNS fields are empty


1.  FreeBSD-13.1-PRERELEASE-amd64-20220224-9134a398506-249729-disc1.iso

2.  boot from the installer

3.  begin installation

4.  choose optional system components to install

    * impossible choices are permitted without forewarning (a separate bug)

5.  configure networking (IPv4, DHCP, not IPv6)

6.  observe the resolver configuration with automatically completed entries

7.  proceed beyond failures to fetch, beyond failure(s) to extract

8.  in the Abort dialogue, exit

9.  in the Welcome dialogue, install, proceed

10. refrain from choosing optional system components

11. proceed, observe installation, set the password for root

12. configure networking (IPv4, DHCP, not IPv6)


13. resolver configuration is not automated


Whilst FreeBSD-13.1-PRERELEASE-amd64-20220224-9134a398506-249729-disc1.iso (as
an example) is novel, this is, I believe, a very old bug that has bitten me on
many occasions. 

UX: not a good first impression of FreeBSD.
