After I don't know what happened, it seems to have installed. Maybe a bit of "leave it alone" was all it needed, I don't know. Anyways, for the time it seems to be working at a proper level. I'll try to catch it misbehaving now.
Same here. I left the install process, came back, tried a re-install and it moved on to the perl install. Stalled again, left it, came back and tried a re-install which completed successfully. The daemon seems to be behaving now, which is good.
Nearly out of space on the /dev/ufs/pfsense0 partition, but it should be fine for awhile.
