Usage

This assumes local links, corrects the formatting issue with text wrap under the images, and greatly simplifies the process of adding or editing the navigation header. The home/index link should be modified within the Template:NavHeaderMiddle itself, while below may be pasted into a page with minor modifications to define what will become each link and the text for each link's alternate label. Missing or malformed link info defaults to a Navigation Header error page while properly formed but links to missing pages are added to the Special:wanted pages list. Text ought to be formatted with desired capitalization.

{{NavHeader|back=<name of the previous page>|forward=<name of the next page>}} The following text and other content is lifted from another page to show how everything would fit together and can be ignored. blah blah blah
Installing PC-BSD is usually an easy process that "just works". However, sometimes you will run into a problem. This section will look at solutions to the most common installation problems.

Network Installation Fails

When installing over the network, the PC-BSD installer will try to configure any Ethernet interfaces using DHCP. Occasionally it will fail to get an IP address and will be unable to connect to the FTP mirror to get the files needed by the installer. You will know this is the case when the mirror list shown in Figure 4.2b remains greyed out.

You can manually retry getting an IP address from the terminal. To access a terminal, right-click an area on the desktop outside of the installation window and select xterm from the menu. Type ifconfig in the terminal to find out the FreeBSD names for your interfaces. You are looking for an Ethernet entry that shows a status of active. In the example shown in Figure 3.13a, the interface em0 is active but does not have an IP address.

Once you know the name of the interface, use it with the dhclient command as seen in Example 3.13a.

Example 3.13a: Using dhclient to Obtain an IP Address

dhclient em0
DHCPREQUEST on em0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67
DHCPACK from 192.168.2.1
bound to 192.168.2.10 -- renewal in 43200 seconds.

If you can obtain an IP address, you should be able to select a mirror to install from and continue with the installation.

Installation Fails

The PC-BSD installer creates a log which keeps a record of all the steps that completed as well as any errors. Should the installation fail, you can access this log
