Re: "freebsd-update upgrade" and GhostBSD

Hi Eric! Nice to read your direct opinions... As I said to gentle ASX, I wish GhostBSD be a rolling release, to have the possibility, in few words, "to install once, update every while, and forget all the rest". This said, the only rolling releases I used/use are: PCLinuxOS (before) and Lubuntu (now...

Re: "freebsd-update upgrade" and GhostBSD

Congratulations for your work.

You made the BSD world easy (and accessible by all cpu architecture - well, at least x86-32 and x86-64 -).

Re: FreeBSD ports system: which branch?

You were very precise in your reply, thank you very much!

Maybe one could launch "svnlite update /usr/ports" every time UpdateStation shows up!... If the branch is the same quarterly, you should not have any incoherence, shouldn't it?

Re: "freebsd-update upgrade" and GhostBSD

Sorry ASX if I redo the question....
Is that way the best way to upgrade GhostBSD, without formatting and reinstalling with a brand new release ISO?

(Once in future Eric will donate us a rolling release... I know it will happen... Eric please make upgrades easy!)
:-D :-D :-D

Re: "freebsd-update upgrade" and GhostBSD

Many thanks ASX for replay... fog is starting to disappear... :oops: So is correct procedure to upgrade GhostBSD like so? #freebsd-update fetch install #freebsd-update -r 10.X upgrade #github... #cd /usr/ports/path to ghostbsd customizations #make install clean ??? Suggestion: why don't you specify ...

Re: FreeBSD ports system: which branch?

Hi ASX!
Thanks for reply!

So, how can I set ports system to use the quarterly branch, and thus avoiding conflicts with UpdateStation?

Portmaster/portupgrade garbage??? Really?
I use those tools because they are suggested in the official FreeBSD online Ports/packages how-to

FreeBSD ports system: which branch?

Hi! This is a question to FreeBSD gurus... :D Many times, my Update-station is quiet (no lamp showing up), but command " pkg version -l '<' " tells me there are many packages to update. In that case I type portupgrade -R "package_name" So I wonder, maybe ports are bundled with "CURRENT" branch and t...
