GhostBSD 21.01.15 Release Notes

I am happy to announce the availability of the new ISO 21.01.15. This new ISO comes with a clean-up of packages that include removing LibreOffice and Telegram from the default selection. We did this to bring the zfs RW live file systems to run without problem on 4GB of ram machine. We also removed the UFS full disk option from the installer. Users can still use custom partitions to setup UFS partition, but we discourage it. We also fixed the Next button's restriction in the custom partition related to some bug that people reported. We also fix the missing default locale setup and added the default setup for Linux Steam, not to forget this ISO includes kernel, userland and numerous application updates.

If the system is up to date, pkg query '%v' os-generic-userland-base should return 20.12.25.

Testing CS:GO on GhostBSD with Linux Steam


This video is all done under GhostBSD with the use of OBS to record video and audio with virtual_oss, pacat to loop the audio of the game and Pitivi was use to sync the audio with the video.  

All tanks to shkhln on the FreeBSD forum for the help on recording the game audio.

Here is a short explanation of how it was done: https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/how-to-recored-audio-from-game-on-freebsd.77855/#post-485601
