This page contains some notes on installing FreeBSD "by hand" using official dists.

Partition... (will be added later)

# mount /dev/gpt/sys-root0 /mnt
# cd /mnt
# tar xpf /dist/amd64/9.0-BETA1/base.txz 
# tar xpf /dist/amd64/9.0-BETA1/kernel.txz 
# mount -p | sed -nE -e 's/2 2/1 1/' -e '/\/mnt/s/\/mnt/\//p' > etc/fstab
# printf "%s\t%s\t\t\t%s\t%s\t\t%d %d\n" /dev/gpt/sys-swap swap swap sw 0 0 >> etc/fstab

Enable serial console:

# echo '-D' > boot.config
# sed -i "" -e '/tty[du]0/s/off/on/' etc/ttys
