Some of news about GhostBSD

For the last three months, there were some efforts to bring OpenRC to 12-STABLE with TrueOS all thanks to Miwi. Due to this effort, we will follow the STABLE branch instead of CURRENT. This change brings ABI stability and less code change for system updates. The only downside is that all current GhostBSD users will need to reinstall GhostBSD. This change is mostly due because tracking all changes in CURRENT was hard, and the latest Nvidia driver did not work well with CURRENT.

GhostBSD 19.04 Now Available

Finally, GhostBSD 19.04 is out! GhostBSD 19.04 has several improvements from the volume controller to the installer, and for the first time, we added and changed some code in the base system. GhostBSD 19.04 is available with our official MATE desktop, and there is also a community Xfce desktop version available. This release is a significant improvement from GhostBSD 18.12. Enjoy!

Fix for dns and resolv issue

There is a conflict that has been discovered in GhostBSD 18.10 and 18.12, it got more visible in 18.12. While working on the next release I have discover the conflict. The package dhcpcd conflict with the dhcpcd in the base. The conflict causes some problem to create /etc/resolv.conf, it also causes some issue with networks card to crash on network restart and on resume from suspend.

To fix the issue permanently dhcpcd package need to be uninstalled:
sudo pkg delete dhcpcd
sudo dhcpcd
reboot
