Hello ericbsd, good job for this release, the translation is fine for French users. As far as I know, my BCM4313 wifi card is not yet recognized (as in FreeBSD, the bwn kernel module is inoperative).
I have also to try to run my touchscreen (on notebook HP 2760P) with the wacom driver and / or wmt, I still can not manage it by following the FreeBSD documentation.

"This also means that current users will need to reinstall GhostBSD "

Why did you it again.... i have no time to install system from begining and configure it and install aplications.
I hope it is the last.... It has to be.
It was wrong decision to turn into true os. They every update make an revolution in system....

@radek : The base of work change was decided to improve the stability of the distribution it is not a bad thing and it must be done with. Hoping that this decision will be maintained in time.

Hello,
I installed 1909 in a VM and this version is really exciting.
First thing I noticed is the excelent job done on LightDM. It is now localized ! No need to convert chars typed from my azerty keyborard into qwerty.
And it seems numlock can be enabled in the conf file.
:arrow: Sorry for my bad English : I'm French

I understand that point, but like @ouaille_aime_scier_ said it needed to be done. STABLE ABI will solve all my issue with ABI changing too fast. CURRENT was moving to fast and got many with ABI changes with CURRENT, most of the time it was breaking ports build for software packages. Adding fact that the system packages changed three times since moved to TrueOS, I have forked the last changes to avoid any future problem with packeging the OS. So far my only concern would be upgrading to stable 13-STABLE I have time to come up with a solution.

So, I have this nasty Intel based Toshiba laptop from 2015, UEFI only;
with the community release, it can run the inteldrm driver just fine.
But the regular GhostBSD release can't start the inteldrm?

So what is the difference between these community & regular releases (other than the default desktop)?

OK, must be some weird glitch.

Also, my USB ethernet adapter doesn't work under GhostBSD anymore,
this is what it looks like under freebsd12stable, and an old trueOS12current;

Code: Select all

ugen0.2: <ASIX Elec. Corp. product 0x7720> at usbus0
axe0 on uhub3
axe0: <0> on usbus0
miibus1: <MII bus> on axe0
ukphy0: <Generic IEEE 802.3u media interface> PHY 16 on miibus1
ukphy0:  none, 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto
ue0: <USB Ethernet> on axe0
ue0: Ethernet address: 00:50:b6:08:31:70
ue0: link state changed to DOWN
Under GhostBSD, just the first line shows up, and then nothing.

Is it on the live DVD/USB session?
