--- Comment #8 from Benedict Reuschling <bcr at FreeBSD.org> ---
I can do that tomorrow. My experiences so far is that the updated version of
the C6220 firmware made the FreeBSD ISO installation worse, whereas Linux (only
tested it with Ubuntu) seems to work fine. There are random disconnects of the
viewer and when that happens, the following tries also don't work for a number
of tries. Then, it works again. My guess is that the problem lies with the
firmware and not FreeBSD itself. Problem with that is that it does happen less
often (or maybe not at all) with Linux.
But there have also been a number of changes to the FreeBSD boot process
recently, so we might be lucky. I'll test it with 11.2-BETA2 and a recent
CURRENT snapshot and see what we get. I'll let you know.
