Hello,
How stable is FreeBSD 7 Beta 3? Is it near production are their any
outstanding issues?
Probably no major bugs will be fixed between now and 7.0 so you might as
well start using it now.

It's "stable enough" like all .0 releases, meaning you should throughly
test it for your own workload before using it in production.
Just curious, what is the "official" forum for pre-release discussions?
I notice there are some threads on the "current" list, but it seems to
me that this is really "questions" stuff, since it is an upcoming release.
freebsd-stable is probably best.

In any case, I tried the boot-only CD, and I was not able to install any
packages during the install process.  Sysinstall aborted with Signal 11
when trying to read INDEX from the ftp site.  Pkg_add from the command
line seems to work, however, so it looks like I may get online from
7.0-BETA3 tomorrow.
That is expected, packages are not available until later in the release
cycle.

Moreover, wasn't there supposed to be a new install program?  I have
read some promising remarks about it, but it's certainly not part of
7.0-BETA3. Personally, I would much rather type a long list of commands
than use the old, rickety sysinstall.
One is in early development, but not even complete let alone ready to
replace sysinstall.

Kris can I ask what sort of importance bugs that cause crashes (page
faults) are?
I reported 2 bugs before BETA1 both these bugs involved 7.0 getting a
page fault and of course then stop responding requiring a reboot yet
both PRs have had no response and both bugs are still present in BETA3
I see minor issues been worked on such as responsiveness in desktop
use whilst issues that cause system crashes are left unattended.  Is
FreeBSD primarily a desktop os now and thats the new path?

Of course not :P  What are the PR references?

Try this.

Login to twice on ssh.
If not root su both to root.
using the 2nd tty do a watch -W on the first tty.
on the first tty type 'killall watch'
you have now crashed freebsd 7 and most probably a auto reboot timer
is counting down.

I can confirm this.
