I just hit the problem 8-(

The CF is a Transcend Ultra 1 GB Industrial.

Here's what I got :
Code: [Select]
[root@gojira pfSense]# zcat pfSense-1.2.3-1G-20090918-0711-nanobsd.img.gz | dd of=/dev/xvdb1 bs=16k
dd: writing `/dev/xvdb1': No space left on device
28821+0 records in
28820+0 records out
472195584 bytes (472 MB) copied, 32.5402 seconds, 14.5 MB/s

That's a different problem.  Your card filled up after 472 MB.

Flashed the slightly reduced images onto my "2GB" cards...
