Will GhostBSD 11.x update to GhostBSD/TrueOS automatically?

Post by kenw » Tue Sep 25, 2018 8:14 am

I am a happy user of GhostBSD.
I have been following the posts about the base change and I am confused.
The question I have is, Will GhostBSD 11.x automatically update to the latest GhostBSD with the TrueOS base when available or will I have to reinstall?

You will have to reinstall the update manager can't handle a big change like that. GhostBSD base on FreeBSD did not have a way to upgrade to next version.

Eric thanks for the reply.
What should I download for a stable system?
Where do I get from?

I would say that the livecd with Trueos is more stable than GhostBSD 11.1 and the latest build will have updates and upgrades to the release.

I will post the latest build here soon.
