The GhostBSD team is pleased to announce the availability the Second RC build of the 4.0-RELEASE release cycle which is available on SourceForge for the amd64 and i386 architectures.
Changes and fix between 4.0-RC1 and 4.0-RC2 include:
- FreeBSD 10 RELEASE p6 back to 10 RELEASE(This fix problem with default src file) at any time user can update to the latest freebsd-update.
- SpiderOak was not compilable and it is missing in the system.
- VlC as been replace by Gnome MPlayer(active user have ask for it).
- I386 is now using new xorg build and KMS users will benefit of 3D acceleration like GhostBSD x64.
Updating software using "pkg upgrade" will corrupt xorg and might corrupt GDM too. The solution is to use update the software that you want to update with "pkg install" , you can see the list of update by doing "pkg upgrade -n", "pkg install" automatically update software dependency. Be sure to not upgrade xorg-server, xorg-drivers, and any xf86 with "pkg" use "portupgrade"
A special thanks to those who had reported any issues.
