This topic has been brought up time and again. The general consensus is that if you need a fancy installer, use something like PC-BSD. There are a lot of advantages to FreeBSD's text installer ... for one, it works over a serial console. Any new installer would have to keep those advantages. It's also easier to maintain than a graphical installer. The general consensus every time this question comes up is that it could be improved, but it's currently "good enough" and there are other improvements that people think are more important. With a limited number of developer hours available, something gets back-burnered. The idea of a better installer has yet to meet with any resistance, though. It's just a lack of available time, so if you've got time and you're volunteering, I say go for it! -- Bill Moran http://www.potentialtech.com http://people.collaborativefusion.com/~wmoran/ _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
