I had this very same error coming up on my system over the weekend.<br><br>Not wanting to waste too many CDs I tend to burn ISOs on a CD-RW. However this time I burned the PC-BSD 1.4 ISO as multi-session and not as burn-at-once, which caused the problem.
<br><br>So, please make sure:<br>you check the MD5 of the downloaded file (it should match the MD5 string on the download page)<br>You burn the ISO to a CD-R or burn the ISO to a CD-RW as burn-at-once session (burning at a lower speed decreases the chance of writing errors)
<br>Your RAM is more than 256Mb<br><br>Cheers<br><br>Gerard<br><a href="http://fbsd.wordpress.com">http://fbsd.wordpress.com</a><br><br><br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 10/28/07, <b class="gmail_sendername"><a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">

For quite some time now I have been having a problem installing PC-BSD. Everytime I attempt to install it the installation stops and an error message occurs:<br><br>can't exec getty: user/init/exec/getty ttyv0: no such file
<br><br>or something similar repeats continually. I have been trying to get help with this issue and have been frustrated at every attempt. You can keep your PC-BSD. I'm sticking with Microsoft Windows from now on. At least when I contact them I actually get some form of help. PC-BSD is nothing but crap. Every one who asks me about it will be told what a waste of time it is. There is no support for the novice user whatsoever. Instead of learning how to fix this problem, I only learned that no one involved with PC-BSD knows what's going on. Don't waste my time responding to this e-mail because I want nothing more to do with PC-BSD or any one involved with it. I would be very pleased if the entire thing were scrapped and any and al evidence of it's existence were erased. PC-BSD is a bigger waste of time than internet porn. Thanks for infuriating and frustrating me at every turn. Because of the inept bungling I have been accosted with I will NEVER attempt to use any operat
<br>ing system even remotely associated with this sorry excuse for a programme. Good bye and good riddance.<br>_______________________________________________<br>Support mailing list<br><a href="mailto:Support@lists.pcbsd.org">
