Dear kind FreeBSD users,
I have installed freebsd 12.1-RELEASE from mfsbsd with ZFS and I
configured SWAP like I wanted to 4GB of SWAP or 2G is not enough. I
have experience many crashes. I try to run
# freebsd-update fetch
and it fails
# freebsd-update fetch install
and it also fails. IT says, if unsupported, FreeBSD must be upgraded by source.
I do not have a working copy of pkg and partitioned using GPT with zfs
and disklayout looks like
ada0 149 GB GPT
ada0p1 236 KB freebsd-boot
ada0p2 16 GB freebsd-swap
ada0p3 133 GB freebsd-zfs
I did not run bsdinstall because I just ran example command because I
wanted a 16GB swap partition, and I try to run it and it will modify
everything. How do I do it so I can run FreeBSD on it and it would
I get error when I run bsdinstall
No root partition was found. The root FreeBSD partion must have a
mountpoint of '/'.

I did not want to use DVD to install. I wanted to do it quicker and
with a swap file of 16 GB, the default autozfs and/or auto ufs
defaults do not work like I would for them to. When building programs
with ports the programs like rust run out of memory.
Thank you for suggestions and advice. I want to take different
approach. Chromium is crashing randomly and tabs keep crashing. I
want to try something different.
