 Can't find BETA4 distribution on FTP servers
Author: cbrace

Hi Dan and all,

I want to configure PF to use ALTQ, so I need to compile a custom kernel.

Using systinstall, I go to post-config, select source distribution, src and sys components, then try to download.

Alas I keep getting an error message from any of the sites I try, including the main one (ftp.freebsd.org):

Warning: Can't find the `7.0-BETA4' distribution on this
FTP server. You may need to visit a different server for
the release you are trying to fetch or go to the Options
menu and to set the release name to explicitly match what's
available on ftp1.freebsd.org (or set to "any").

Would you like to select another FTP server?

Any idea what could be going wrong?

As should be obvious, I am running v7 BETA4

Thanks.
