#339: Internet installation from bootonly CD not working
 Reporter:  njurkeit       |       Owner:  kris

 Priority:  major          |   Milestone:      
Component:  Installer      |     Version:  8.1

 After entering IP address, netmask, nameserver and gateway in
 Sysinstaller, a dialog box appears where installation from internet is
 greyed out.

 A check within xterm reveals that neither the IP address is assigned to
 the interface nor the default route is set (only nameserver in
 /etc/resolv.conf is ok). After fixing this manually the internet option
 can be selected, an URL is displayed and setup can be continued up to the
 point where download should begin.

 Then Sysinstaller exits with an error message, probably again due to
 problems with the network setup. This time I don't have an idea how to

 Installation was attempted in a Virtualbox guest. An older PC-BSD version
 is already running fine there.
