Re: GhostBSD and Trident

As I understand it, Lumina's reason to exist, is that it is fully BSD licensed, no GPL.

Re: GhostBSD and Trident

TrueOS is supposed to be a base for many distros, no?

I guess Trident is the new project name for TrueOS+LuminaDesktop,
probably done mostly for the benefit of TrueNAS ?

Re: GhostBSD 18.12 Wired Connection Fails

you might have an issue on your network with DHCP clients not getting any/correct values for the DNS settings. A lot of OS's & apps use their own DNS settings these days, and ignore local settings... Or you forgot about DNS when you were setting the network IP address & gateway manually? I can't tel...

Re: GhostBSD with KDE Plasma

Re: GhostBSD 18.12 Wired Connection Fails

if this is on a laptop, it might be "easy" to swap out the little wifi card with an intel one? For the wired connection: does ifconfig show what IP address you get? Then you need to ping the IP address of your router/gateway, and see if that works. The last thing to check is DNS, see if it can resol...

Re: upgrade from trueOS 12.current to ghostBSD?

thanks, that'll take care of the packages, but I don't even know how to install the base ghostBSD OS into an existing trueOS slice?

upgrade from trueOS 12.current to ghostBSD?

Is there a way to upgrade an existing trueOS 12.current laptop to ghostBSD?

Or do I need to wipe the hard disk/slice?

I'm trying to avoid a data restoration from backup :-P
