Installation of GhostBSD11.1-xfce-amd64.iso in a GPT fails.

Post by rowo » Mon Sep 03, 2018 3:21 pm

I tried to install GhostBSD11.1-xfce-amd64.iso on ada1 containing a GPT with TrueOS and Linux partitions.

I checked the SHA256 sum which is correct:

Code: Select all

root@ghostbsd:/home/ghostbsd # sha256 /mnt/ISO/GhostBSD11.1-xfce-amd64.iso

SHA256 (/mnt/ISO/GhostBSD11.1-xfce-amd64.iso) = 585ac8c7530e9a60d13524de031d14354418028d5223d4b44f9907e86347b35c
I tried the installation (with bash instead of fish as login shell) using two different USB sticks, same result:

Code: Select all

root@ghostbsd:/home/ghostbsd # more /tmp/.pc-sysinstall/pc-sysinstall.log

That is a typical problem that has happened with our live system using unionfs to have RW livecd. Unionfs has caused us to mush problem that we have removed it from the GhostBSD 18. You can find the latest development ISO to https://download.ghostbsd.org/releases/ ... ES/latest/ there is smalls improvement to the installer and once installed you will keep getting updates no need to reinstalled for the real 18.09 release.

Well, https://download.ghostbsd.org/releases/ ... -16-59.iso doesn't work for me because I need the NVIDIA driver version 340.
