GhostBSD is a rolling release?

Post by dave68 » Sun Sep 16, 2018 10:00 am

Hi all, i'm very interesting to BSD world, i'm trying TrueOS that now become Project Trident; my question is if GhostBSD is a rolling release? I tried in VBox, and my impression is very good. Thank for help.

TrueOS isn't becoming Project Trident, Project Trident is distro of TrueOS, with Lumina desktop, like GhostBSD is becoming a distro of TrueOS with MATE desktop.

GhostBSD 11.1 has only rolling packages. The latest build will build of GhostBSD https://download.ghostbsd.org/releases/ ... ES/latest/ supports packages base update of the stable release of TrueOS and software packages. So in a certain way, it is rolling release.

If you install the latest build on your system will be upgraded to the 18.09 before the release is out and you will probably not notice it.

Yes, unless you install the latest build from https://download.ghostbsd.org/releases/ ... ES/latest/.
