Re: installation fails
The error messages start with:
Setting up networking...
Mounting local filesystems...mount: /dev/ad0s1 : No such file or directory
Then there is a message about "/dev/null" not found which I have experienced several times during the installation, but I have ignored.

This is due to a bug in initramfs, that mounts a tmpfs filesystem over
/dev (as on GNU/Linux), it used to be workarounded in freebsd-utils, but
a bug now prevents the workaround to work.
The bug is fixed in freebsd-utils from unstable, but the package still
needs to migrate into testing. In the meanwhile, it is possible to
workaround the problem by running "ln -s /proc/mtab /target/etc/mtab"
in the d-i terminal (using alt-f2), at the end of the installation,
and before rebooting.
