Description Chris Stenton 2010-01-22 12:10:04 UTC
Doing a standard install from 8.0-RELEASE CD. Get as far as having
defined the slices with mount points and then pressing the finish key.
The install process then comes back immediately and terminates with

Unable to find device node /dev/mfid0s1b

which is the swap slice.


Doing the exact same install on the same machine from a 7.2-RELEASE CD
I had no problem.

Fix: 

Had to install 7.2-RELEASE

This is not i386 specific, but I am not sure where it belongs, could 
be related to sysinstall, or a restarted installation.
