Re: GhostBSD is switching it's system base

Hi Eric! :)

Is there a way to upgrade a 11.X GhostBSD(FreeBSD) to the 18.X GhostBSD(TrueOS) just with the command line? I mean without using an installation media and format your root partition :? ...

Is there a way to keep all system configurations?

Re: A very little Display Manager and an obstacle

Just to close the topic: despite my time is like gold for me nowadays, I managed to make my little Display Manager "EasyDM" check users' password in FreeBSD too! Through a more POSIX way without the "shadow" library, that is a linuxism. 8-) I fixed bug #1: password check in *BSD systems not working....

Re: A very little Display Manager and an obstacle

Very interesting...

But... (maybe a stupid question) if arg1 is "12345", then N-1, "parola_da_cryptare" now is: "1234“?
Or is the last char considered the special final char ("\0")?

Re: A very little Display Manager and an obstacle

ASX, thank you very much for your tip! I at last managed to check password in *BSD too! :D Actually, it was so trivial... sometimes I'm surprised in BSD world by this: my mind is used to complicate itself, but things are so easy, why make them more complicate? (It's difficult to explain this sensati...

Re: A very little Display Manager and an obstacle

Thank you both for your tips. Kraileth , I'm sorry, I just used "Compress the directory" option in File Manager menu, like "Extract here". I was not aware of this problem. Anyway I've just uploaded an other tarball without that issue, I used "tar" command in a terminal, to avoid such a joke. ;) Plea...

A very little Display Manager and an obstacle

Hi! I wrote a very little and home-made Display Manager. https://sites.google.com/view/easydisplaymanager/home It's got a limited set of features, and it's only a proof of concept. :) The obstacle (for me) is that I (as a bash scripter with bare C know-how) can check user password only with "shadow....

If you desire to entertain yourself, please see this post from Angelescuo, which resume the required steps to turn a FreeBSD install into a GhostBSD install and implicitly list the packages in our github repo. http://forums.ghostbsd.org/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=507#p2269 Have fun! ;) Thanks! :D I'll se...

Re: "freebsd-update upgrade" and GhostBSD

Ok! :roll: Probably, even though currently upgrading GhostBSD specific packages is possible (via git, etc.), it's maybe a little messed up, so it's far better give you time to build up your repo, thus follow the "easy way". So, if I have understood correctly, my question "freebsd-update upgrade" and...
