Description

pfSense does not install the configured packages during the first boot after installation if the first documented method of restoring the configuration is used (/conf/config.xml present during installation). It works with the second method (/config/config.xml present at first boot).

In the failing case, the boot process does not print a message about reinstalling packages. Instead, it reports the (absent) packages as successfully started:

Starting package Zabbix Agent 5.2...done.
Starting package Shellcmd...done.

The system.log contains these lines near the end:
