[PC-BSD Testing] Very good news and my apologies, testing 9.1 rc2 with Gnome and KDE on a Republic of Gamers ASUS board

Did test the x64 installations from RC2 USB LIVE Installation.
After Upgrading RC1 to RC2 32bit on 64 Bit Hardware some drivers/scripts are breaking the system, so backup and installing new.
SMBD and WINBIND not starting from existing rc.conf automatically.

(Fresh Installation with USB LITE x86/64 is ok)

Starting pc-sysinstaller on ASUS x64 i3 SandyBridge with LXDE advanced disc wizard with ZFS RAID are showing errors when using ada0 and ada1:

#zfs create -p tank0... ok
#zfs set ...
#pc-sysinstall: starting extraction
EXITERROR: ERROR: Failed extracting the tar image

(before copying and after known working partition trick when going back and for to mirror ZFS)

It seems difficult to install from LIVE medium and to boot from USB image.
Would be great to hear from others reproducing.

> First of all my apologies, i did not test correctly and took the 386 version instead of the 64 it version. I just moved to another house and with a recent burnout as well my mind was not set correctly. If anybody has good tips to get rid of the bad effects of a burnout please let me know. 
> Than the good news. The new Gforce driver is working excellent.  I tested it also with a 3d game , alien arena and it worked excellent. The Geforce card was recognized (not exactly a gamers card I know, but it is meant later for a htpc) it is a Geforce GT520.
