    this message occures after booting up with alpha 2.0

    i have flashed pfSense-2.0-ALPHA-ALPHA-20090319-2036.img to an 256MB CF Card. Alix Board has newest bios installed.. but still no success



  • The config.xml is missing. If you copy the one over from conf.default and reboot, you can get on with things.

    Ok thx for this answer. I will try it. The config.default is also contained in the image and in the dir /conf?
    Tried the install with less troubleshooting time. Just tried touch the vonfig.xml



  • Hello,

    This may not help your problem exactly, but I got my Alix 2D3 succesfully running full version of 2.0-ALPHA 19.3.2009 20:00. I followed the steps mentioned in first response (StarScream) from here: http://blog.pfsense.org/?p=175. The most difficult part was to use vi editor to update the fstab ;)

    thanks for your post. ive tried the last snapshot pfSense-2.0-ALPHA-ALPHA-20090322-0610.img and this works without editing the fstab table.

    thanks anyway
