Just install it yourself in virtualbox (slow, always works) or kvm (requires
I just lost several hours today trying, so here's a list of pitfalls:
* You need to change the virtual network card. VirtualBox's default,
"PCnet-FAST III (Am79C973)", is recognized by kfreebsd but doesn't see the
network. "PCnet-PCI II (Am79C970A)" works fine.
* You need a particular d-i build:
(I assume -amd64 works too).
Current d-i dailies are broken (the partitioner fails, even with a
pre-partitioned disk, not letting you assign mount points). Don't use the
sysinstall images either (they install but filesystem operations randomly
fail). Rumours that d-i builds 20100306 or 20100223 are ok are untrue as
well (won't even boot past the splash screen).
