    During the DNSONLY install for FreeBSD I constantly get these errors:

    ===> Cleaning for exim-4.34+22

    etc etc. But the installation seems to finish.

    IS this a problem or should I just ignore them? I also find that apache is not the latest version and there is no way to update stuff in the DNSONLY release. =(

    I'm getting this on a standard install.
    I noticed the install script was updated today also.

    FreeBSD detected!

    my only solution to this was to first make sure named is running o the default freebsd install. then have another SSH window open with the resolv.conf set to: nameserver 127.0.0.1. then immediately when you start the install, save the resolv.conf over the one it makes and it will start finding the packages. most will fail. but once i got cpanel semi working i was able to /scripts/upcp --force to get everything it needed again.

    not sure why there is this odd dns problem on some freebsd installs.
