I tried installing today the latest release of FreeBSD on a VMWare 
virtual machine, but have issues doing so because sysinstall segfaults 
(signal 11) when installing with profile "X-Kern Developer" and "X 
Developer" (or similar words) after downloading and installing "core" 
Having added the DEBUG option and retried, I got the same message (see 
message below) but debug doesn't print much more.

Do you have any clue?

Actual message:
"A signal 11 was caught - I'm saving what I can and shutting down. [...]"

On the debug side, I have the following:
"DEBUG: package check for 0.3 xmlcatmgr-2.2 xorg-fonts-miscbitmaps [...] 
xvid-1.1.3,1 returns failure.
DEBUG: Signal 11 caught! That's bad!"

More details:
- FreeBSD-7.0-beta3/i386 bootonly CD image
- FTP mirror used is "France"
- VMWare Workstation 6.0.0
- 512MB memory virtual machine
- 8 GB virtual disk with default partitioning
