For some reason /dev failed to mount. Normally, the kernel
automatically mounts / read-only and /dev read-write. The former is
upgraded to read-write by the rc scripts during multiuser boot.
It could be a bug in 11.3.
The menus are somewhat improved in stable/12 and head. Here are some
screenshots from a VM I just booted, it runs head from February(!):
That dark blue colour is my only complaint. It can be a real pain to
read on certain terminals/video adapters.
