The PC-BSD project is pleased to announce the availability of our 11.0-CURRENTMAY2015 images.
WARNING: These images are considered “bleeding-edge” and should be treated as such.
The DVD/USB ISO files can now be downloaded from this URL.
We hope to continue rolling these –CURRENT images as a way for testers and developers to tryout both FreeBSD and PC-BSD bleeding edge features, often months before a planned release. These images include a full PKG repository compiled for that months image. Users of this system will also be able to “upgrade” when the next monthly image is published.
This is a great way to test features and report bugs well before the release cycle begins for the next major .0 release.
For bugs in PC-BSD, please report to https://bugs.pcbsd.org.
For FreeBSD / Port / Kernel / World bugs, please report to https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi.
Updating from 10.1-RELEASE
There was a bug we found in freebsd-update when upgrading from 10.1-RELEASE to 11.0.
This has been fixed in 10.1-RELEASE-p21 (Check the output of freebsd-version), please update to it before attempting to change branch to 11.0.
Once you have the –p21 fix, run the following to “upgrade” your system to 11.0-CURRENTMAY2015svn282515
# pc-updatemanager chbranch 11.0-CURRENTMAY2015svn282515
This process will take a while, downloading new packages / world / kernel for the system. When done you can reboot, and the updater will finish up the update process.
