Disk Encryption

I know that FreeBSD includes an option to encrypt a drive (with GELI?). But, does GhostBSD offer the same thing? I'm fairly new to BSDs, so if it isn't offered in a simple GUI, I'll probably mess it up. Ideally even if the root partition isn't encrypted, my /home partition should be. I use 'encfs' a...

Re: First GhostBSD dev release of with TrueOS base system.

The release looks great! Everything works nicely, except for DHCP under Linux KVM. I hope I'm not being too picky. Once I run 'dhclient vtnet0' things work great, but the live image never seems to pull an IP automatically.

Re: Upgrade Borked System

Would you mind sharing some of your info? If you can run this command, it'll pump out all your installed packages to a file. pkg info > my-installed-packages.txt It should work for any shell. Either attach it to your post, which is easier, or copy/paste the contents which may not work depending now ...

Re: Upgrade Borked System

To find out what shell you are using, once you are the root user , because it can change, type: echo $SHELL CSH If it returns '/bin...

Re: Installation 11.1 and

TL;DR I created a VM and used 'dd' to put it onto the partition of my choice. The installer doesn't work sometimes, and I'm not smart enough to figure out why. When using 'dd', just copy the partition, not the whole disk. LONG version with directions: https://forums.ghostbsd.org/viewtopic.php?f=59&t...

Re: Upgrade Borked System

I thought that csh and ksh were the main shells Solaris folks used. I'd love to learn them, but bash has been the default on everything I've used in earnest until now.

Re: Upgrade Borked System

Re: Upgrade Borked System

If you want to see if something is out of place and may resolve itself, you could run pkg update -f to force an update of the repo metadata, then pkg check -d as root. It will check dependencies and install missing ones (according to the man page). The package 'sqlite3' appears to be a dependency fo...
