Today Quick Tip: Boot in single mode PDF

If you want to boot in single mode right after boot2 stage finishes, press space right when FreeBSD starts to boot and then use:

  /boot/loader -s

This will boot the kernel in single mode. This command is usefull when you boot FreeBSD via serial port and you cannot access single mode from FreeBSD menu that appear before loading the kernel (somehow that menu will not work on serial console).

If you've passed that you can still press space and use:

  boot -s

(this will also boot your FreeBSD into single mode)
