GhostBSD 2.5 RC1 is out.

The GhostBSD release is late from FreeBSD 9.0 release status.

 —list of bug fixed—

  • Pitivi on i386.
  • The free space output on the GUI and TEXT BASE installer.
  • The third install option on the TEXT BASE installer.
  • Brasero is fix for root on amd64. But still don’t add data on normal user.

For more info on the Base OS read FreeBSD 9.0 release status.

To install GhostBSD you have two option. The new option is by clicking on the GhostBSD Installer icon or Typing gbi on terminal for GUI installation. The typing ginstall in a terminal for the new text base installer.

Ginstall is a great tool for those can get to GUI or their keyboard and mouse don’t work on the GUI. Read this topic for help.

If you see any typos or grammar errors please let us know about it. The developers team are not native English speaking people.

You will see GhostBSD lite(CD) and GhostBSD(DVD), both have the installer. The difference is GhostBSD lite is a smaller version to fit on a CD. A script will be released soon. So the rest of the apps and configuration can be added later.

Something new we have USB image for those who prefer us USB memory stick.

To Install on USB from BSD:

dd if=/path/to/GhostBSD-2.5-RC1-i386.img of=/dev/da0 bs=1m conv=sync
dd if=/path/to/GhostBSD-2.5-RC1-amd64.img of=/dev/da0 bs=1m conv=sync

To Install on USB from Linux.
