GhostBSD 2.5 RC2 available for testing

Second release candidate for the upcoming GhostBSD 2.5 is now available for download. This release is based upon FreeBSD 9.0-RC2.

Notable changes include:

  • added WiFi Network Manager for easier wireless connection configuration; additionally, the WiFi card is now being configured during live medium boot-up,
  • added Florence virtual keyboard for future touch screen development,
  • added e2fsprogs to support ext2, ext3 and ext4 filesystem.

GhostBSD lite (CD medium) will be a little late this time. We have decided to swap GNOME for LXDE desktop in that version.

Known Issues:

  • Brasero on amd64 architecture still closes itself on normal user when adding data,
  • shutdown button is not available on amd64 and i386 mediums,
  • during the installation, GNOME will occasionally show “cannot mount volume file” error message. This does NOT interfere with the installation in any way.

Reporting Bugs:

Since this is a pre-release, please assist us by reporting (and/or fixing) bugs. Users are encouraged to discuss their findings on the GhostBSD Forums.

When providing feedback please indicate which installation media you are using.
