i´ve try to set up an pxeboot for automatic installation of my FreeBSD
systems. Installing works without a problem.
To do the custom setup I need for my servers, I have created a package
and a post-install script for this package. The post Install script does
some changes to /etc/rc.conf. I initializes a second network device and
activates some auf the installed packages. That works fine.
The script also add sshd_enabled="YES" to /etc/rc.conf.
When i do a cat /etc/rc.conf from the holographic shell everything seems
OK but after reboot some of the additions are gone (some not all)
The lines missing are
the lines for the second Networkdevice and activation of the installed
packages remain in the rc.conf.
