Default FreeBSD-9.0-RC2

The RC2 installer refuses to use a FreeBSD partition which I created with OpenBSD. The installer refused me to disklabel that partition at all.
I only succeeded in installing RC2 when I allowed it to create another partition by itself.

Because I installed with a serial console, with logging turned on, I have a complete log of my troubles. Unfortunately I can not display the log file with a normal file viewer like less. The display is completely messed up with the xterm/ansi terminal escapes and codes. I know there is a program or port that can parse the log to meaningful screenshots, but I have been unable to remember or find it.

Anybody who knows?

PS
Yes, I know there is RC3 already

I remember having similar problems several years ago. From what I remember, the problems arose from slightly incompatible variants of the bsdlabels scheme.
