I'm having problems with sysinstall used from a script. (Before you ask, yes I've read the man page and yes I know sysinstall is "greatly in need of death" but I've not yet found a plausible alternative. I'm all ears if you've got one to suggest.) I'm using a custom built live CD based on FreeSBIE and the script attached below. When I invoke this sysinstall certainly seems busy -- it claims to be unpacking the distribution set I specified -- but it doesn't actually accomplish anything. No boot loader is installed and no changes are made to the partition table.
I'm sure I've missed something obvious but I haven't been able to work it out through searching the documentation on http://freebsd.org/, the archive for this list or Google in general. What am I doing wrong?
