10.0.3-RC2 Available for Testing

PC-BSD 10.0.3-RC2 ISO images are now available for testing.

Users on the EDGE package set, or 10.0.3-RC1 can update to the newer set with the following commands:

# pkg update -f
# pkg upgrade
# pc-extractoverlay ports

This update brings in the newer pkgng 1.3.7, which may need to re-install many of your packages in order to properly fix an issue with shared-library version detection in previous pkgng releases.

The current plan is to release 10.0.3 early next week, so please let us know of any issues right away via our RedMine bug tracker.

    Does this release support UEFI?

    • September 3, 2014 at 11:03 am |

      Not just yet. I think FreeBSD 10.0-REL still doesn’t do UEFI with root-on-ZFS. 10.1 it may work though, and I’ll have to take a closer look.

        If you do support UEFI, will simply enabling UEFI on my system take care of it, or will there be more to it than that?

          We’ll have a better idea once we get a chance to test the FreeBSD 10.1 UEFI support.

    if I install PC-BSD with GRUB2 and I already have a Linux distro installed, PC-BSD’s Grub2 recognizes the Linux boot?

      If it doesn’t, you can paste in the entry using Control Panel -> Boot Manager. If you know what the correct entry is now, write it down before the install.

    Hi, I’m thinking of giving PC-BSD a try when this new release hits final. I’e been using Linux for around 3 years. Can anyone tell me the pro’s and con’s of using BSD instead of Linux?

      pcbsd.orgpcbsd.orgYou can read some of the benefits of PC-BSD here:

      Since you have used Linux for 3 years, you probably know most of its benefits already. The only things I can think of that Linux may have over PC-BSD is being able to run Steam and Windows video games easier/better maybe on Linux from what I’ve read, but not necessarily as well/easily on PC-BSD/FreeBSD. Also, I’m not certain if Skype works (works well?) on PC-BSD. Here is a comparison of Linux versus FreeBSD at this link:

      slideshare.netZFS and boot environments are another big bonus. See for an overview of ZFS features.
