Works on an Ultra 60 with 2 cpus.
falcon# uname -a
FreeBSD falcon 9.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 9.0-CURRENT #24 r218643M: Sun Feb 13 10:49:35 CST 2011 root at comporellon.tachypleus.net:/usr/obj/sparc64.sparc64/usr/src/sys/GENERIC sparc64
I did a guided install via serial console.
after hostname input I saw :
rm: /tmp/bsdinstall_etc/fstab: No such file or directory
On a different attempt, I wasn't sure how to exit the LiveCD portion of it and get back into the installer. I could type sysinstall
to get into sysinstall, but that isn't the same. I ended up rebooting.
I configured a static ip and expected 'tab' to get me onto the Netmask line, needed
to use the down error.
Works for me.
