PC-BSD 10.0-RC5 Now Available
The next PC-BSD 10.0-RELEASE-p4 image (based upon FreeBSD 10.0-RC5) is now available for download!
This will likely be our LAST RC before issuing the 10.0-FINAL release in a week or so. Please report any outstanding issues to our bug database.
*** NOTE to users of 10.0-RC4 or earlier ***
Due to an ABI change in FreeBSD between RC4 and RC5, you will need to re-install *all* packages and PBIs after updating to RC5.
To update your packages, use the following command:
pkg-static upgrade –f
NOTE: This is best done immediately after the upgrade, before rebooting into RC5.
Once your desktop / server is updated, you can then update your PBIs via the “AppCafe” utility or using pbi_delete / pbi_add.
We are still finishing up a number of the newly-rebuilt RC5 PBIs, so if a particular application is not yet in the AppCafe, please check back in a day or two.
This image is still a pre-release version of the upcoming 10.0-RELEASE. Use caution when deploying upon production systems.
Online updating to 10.0-RELEASE is now available for testing on 9.2-RELEASE systems. To get started, first ensure that your packages and world/kernel are up to date, and then follow these instructions:
After making this change, the “pc-updatemanager branches” command will show the new 10.0-RELEASE branch as available for updating.
