Re: How to install openvpn on GhostBSD

The old pkg is no longer used by the upstream FreeBSD - another reason to use a more up to date system.

Edit: There were a great many changes to the way the system operated when version 10 of FreeBSD came out.

Re: How to install openvpn on GhostBSD

Take a look here,

Re: GhostBSD 10.1 release, is not compatible with FreeBSD 10

PC-BSD has many people working on it, GhostBSD only has, I think, about two people doing the actual work.
It takes time to change to the new versions. :)

Re: How to install openvpn on GhostBSD

Using the latest version of an O/S is always 'recommended practice' to keep vulnerabilities at bay. (2.5 is quite old & uses a different packaging system to that used now.) As far as I know, openvpn is not included software, so will have to be installed by yourself. (The old way is pkg_add openvpn ,...

Re: Compatibility

Welcome aboard.

Probably best you stick with 'unix like' systems, (though Haiku & MenuetOS might also interest you). ;)

Re: Manual Partitioning for a Gaming / Multimedia PC

The root partition (/) size will depend on the size of the installation. I know this doesn't sound very helpful, but no body but you knows how many extras you will be installing. :) If you are going to have /, swap, & /home, your / partition needs to be able to handle the OS & everything else you wa...
