Description R Tyler Croy freebsd_committer 2013-10-23 00:50:00 UTC
When trying to set up ZFS from the installer, I chose to use encryption. A step I'm not sure whether is related to the bug, but hopefully relevant information.

After entering my password twice, the installer seems to freeze/stall and has sat on that dialog screen for hours.

The emergency shell is responsive and works fine, but the "system console" screen (Alt+F3) shows the following:

--------8<--------8<---------

Running installation step: keymap
Running installation step: hostname
rm: /tmp/bsdinstall_etc/fstab: No such file or directory
[: -eq argument expected
Running installation step: zfsboot

--------8<--------8<---------

As a followup on this, I tried going through the installer with ZFS but
*without* encryption, and things got past the ZFS part of the installation just
fine.
