#339 closed System Defect (fixed)

Internet installation from bootonly CD not working

Reported by: njurkeit Owned by: kris
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Installer Version: 8.1
Keywords: Cc: trac-bugs@…


After entering IP address, netmask, nameserver and gateway in Sysinstaller, a dialog box appears where installation from internet is greyed out.

A check within xterm reveals that neither the IP address is assigned to the interface nor the default route is set (only nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf is ok). After fixing this manually the internet option can be selected, an URL is displayed and setup can be continued up to the point where download should begin.

Then Sysinstaller exits with an error message, probably again due to problems with the network setup. This time I don't have an idea how to proceed.

Installation was attempted in a Virtualbox guest. An older PC-BSD version is already running fine there.

  • Resolution set to fixed

Check that the VirtualBox? networking is configured for a bridged adapter:

When using DHCP, a greyed out screen indicates that DHCP did not automatically get a lease. Instructions on how to proceed can be found in
