GhostBSD 22.01.12 ISO is now available

This new ISO contains fixes, improvements, and software updates. Finally, the installer hanging at the cleaning stage for ZFS installation got fixed, and OpenRC and dhcpcd were removed from the base code. Furthermore, automation configuration for HD 7000 series and older GPUs has been added. I also added the support for os-release to show GhostBSD name and GhostBSD version in applications like mate-system-monitor, python distros, pfetch, and neofetch and added a new set of wallpapers for 2022 and removed p7zip from the default selection since it is vulnerable and unmaintained.

Minimum System Requirements

  • 64-bit processor
  • 4GB+ of RAM
  • 15 GB of free hard drive space
  • Network card

Note: GhostBSD can't successfully install in a system with less than 4G of ram because once GhostBSD is booted, it is running from the ram and not from the USB flash drive or DVD.



I try to run update station and it doesn't see any updates available.

It still says: FreeBSD GhostBSD-1 12.2-STABLE FreeBSD 12.2-STABLE GENERIC amd64

PaulP you will need to reinstall GhostBSD there is no upgrade path from 12.2-STABLE to 22.01.12.
