Upgrading kernel

Post by ayyash07 » Sun Dec 08, 2019 12:28 pm

Hi. I've installed 19.11. This version uses 12.1-STABLE kernel, while 19.10 uses 12.1-PRERELEASE. I've tried upgrade kernel from source bot lost system. So I've installed again, it is stable now but I cannot do "freebsd-update", because of the error:

Code: Select all

src component not installed, skipped
freebsd-update: Cannot upgrade from a version that is not a release
(including alpha, beta and release candidates)
using freebsd-update. Instead, FreeBSD can be directly
upgraded by source or upgraded to a RELEASE/RELENG version
prior to running freebsd-update.
Currently running: 12.1-STABLE
How may I change kernel to 12.1-RELEASE version?

On GhostBSD, system upgrade (including the kernel) is done via pkg. Just open a terminal window and type sudo pkg update -f && sudo pkg upgrade ;)
