Installer Problem on Bsd Partitions

Reported by: kuku Owned by: kris
Priority: major Milestone: 9.0
Component: Installer Version: 9.0-BETA1
Keywords: freebsd partitions Cc: trac-bugs@…


When you try to install pcbsd beta 1.5 on existing freebsd partitions (by selecting advanced and pointing mount points) installer fails after it writes table to harddisk. You must reboot and start installation again.

Tried on 3 laptops in order:

ibm t22
asus u46
asus a52f

Sorry i dont have the err message handy and i can not regenerate the errors as paritions are wiped out.

Right now you can't point to an existing partition and install to it, the installer is going to redo the partition and install. That feature will probably be in 9.1 though.

In the meantime, I need the error messages to debug this specific issue :(

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing due to lack of feedback. Reopen ticket with a copy of the pc-sysinstall.log if this is still an issue with 9.0-RELEASE.
