Just curious, what is the "official" forum for pre-release discussions?
I notice there are some threads on the "current" list, but it seems to
me that this is really "questions" stuff, since it is an upcoming release.
In any case, I tried the boot-only CD, and I was not able to install any
packages during the install process. Sysinstall aborted with Signal 11
when trying to read INDEX from the ftp site. Pkg_add from the command
line seems to work, however, so it looks like I may get online from
Moreover, wasn't there supposed to be a new install program? I have
read some promising remarks about it, but it's certainly not part of
7.0-BETA3. Personally, I would much rather type a long list of commands
than use the old, rickety sysinstall.
