With FreeBSD 8 you could manually install by doing something like:
# mdconfig -f /FreeBSD-8.2-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso # mount -t cd9660 /dev/md0 /cdrom # cd /cdrom/8.* # export DESTDIR=/mnt # cd base; sh install.sh; cd .. # cd catpages; sh install.sh; cd .. # cd manpages; sh install.sh; cd .. # cd src; sh install.sh all; cd .. # cd kernels; sh install.sh generic; cd ..
etc.. This was very handy for remote installs and other special circumstances.
FreeBSD 9 install has changed a lot and the CD directory structure is totally different so I'm wondering if anyone knows of a similar way of doing this with FreeBSD 9? Appreciate any help.
