Huge Update, Was It An Upgrade?

Post by mdiemer » Tue Jan 22, 2019 8:56 pm

Just got done installing a very large (1GB) update. It was flawless. As this was almost as large as the operating system itself, I wonder if it actually was an upgrade?

In general, I am extremely impressed with Ghost. I have already made a system image in case anything goes awry. But so far no sign of anything. I have configured the menu with the Windows look, mixed up a nice-looking slate blue for the panel, and chose the Vimix Dark theme. Also I chose New Century Schoolbook bold font, and it just looks gorgeous. Right now you couldn't tear me away from this system. Congratulations!

The last update was a whole rebuild of the system.

That's what I thought. I was a bit nervous installing it, as I'm new to Ghost, but as I said it went flawlessly. I do have a problem getting a Canon printer to work, but I take it that HP printers work best with the True/Ghost systems. I'm not concerned with it, as I can print from another computer by using a thumb drive, or by using online storage. Also, having more than one printer working in the household just results in the lesser-used printer having the ink go bad. Best to use just one!

BTW, what is this version's name/number (and how can I find that out)?

There is not really a version for that one.

This is using the new framework that was discussed at MeetBSD 2108 by Kris Moore? https://youtu.be/fRk8UBx205Y
