GhostBSD 4.0 BETA 1 now available

After a long awaited time, the first BETA build of the 4.0-RELEASE release cycle is available on SourceForge for the amd64 and i386 architectures.

Where to download:

The image checksums, ISO images and USB images are available here:
http://www.ghostbsd.org/download-4.0

Changes and problems fixed between 4.0-ALPHA3 and 4.0-BETA1 include:

  • Switch from cpio to rsync for copying file on the installation.
  • The kernel is now writable on the live DVD which solves graphic card kernel loading for Intel and ATI.
  • Updated FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE to FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE-p3.

Known issues:

  • Network with "Live Image" does not work in Virtualbox or VMware Workstation / Player - workaround is to install the OS.
  • GBI allow users to summit partition without root(/) partition.

Issues fixed that need testing:

  • Installer failed to copy files on virtual machine.
  • Xorg failed to load MATE.

A special thanks to those who had reported any issues.
