Thanks. I see by these lines:


Repositories:
FreeBSD: {
url : "pkg+http://pkg.FreeBSD.org/FreeBSD:10:amd64/quarterly",
enabled : yes,
priority : 0,
mirror_type : "SRV",
signature_type : "FINGERPRINTS",
fingerprints : "/usr/share/keys/pkg"


you're using the FreeBSD repository which I think is the source of probably most of your troubles.

You should change from the FreeBSD to the GhostBSD repositories. I am currently using GhostBSD 10.3 with the GhostBSD repositories on my laptop and everything is working fine.

Here's a link on how to change to the GhostBSD repositories if you wish to do so.

http://forums.ghostbsd.org/viewtopic.php?f=69&t=715

If you're familiar with creating files and folders in Unix I would recommend you change repositories.

If you need more directions or help please let me know.

On my main machine I'm using GhostBSD 11.1 which has the new repositories automatically enabled. :D

It is ALPHA but it is also is very stable and is working fine.

It can be downloaded from here:

http://www.ghostbsd.org/11.1-ALPHA1

Good luck.

Cheers,
I wouldn't say I'm by any means competent but I've made the file and changed back to GhostBSD repository
I'll let you know how I get on
Thanks very much

Well that was a bit of a disaster, it's wiped everything and won't boot at all now. It stalls at the 'GNU GRUB version 2.02 betas' page and every option returns
error: you need to load the kernel first.

Guess I'll be going for a complete fresh install

Sorry to hear that that happened. :(

It's very unusual.

Hope you have better luck with the new install.

Did you disable the FreeBSD repositories after enabling the GhostBSD repos?
