I've been trying to set up a boot-from-usb3 raspberry pi 4. I thought
i'd be able to do this by booting into latest current snapshot image for
arm64 rpi (written to microsd), and then running bsdinstall as root.
I can select the auto-zfs option then select the usb3 disk as
installation destination. The bsdinstall selects the sets and downloads
them, but then get the error:
"error while fetching file://usr/freebsd-dist/MANIFEST : No such file or
also tried via release/13 image, same error. Looks like it's downloading
the files but then the installer can't see them, something like that.
the downloaded files are there:
root at generic:~ # ls -lah /mnt/usr/freebsd-dist/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 4B Apr 9 06:51 .
drwxr-xr-x 6 root wheel 6B Apr 9 06:50 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 158M Apr 9 06:51 base.txz
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 25M Apr 9 06:51 kernel.txz
root at generic:~ #
worth submitting a PR? or is bsdinstall legacy and I need to use some
other method. I've not tried releng/12.2 yet.
