GhostBSD 21.11.24 ISO is now available

Filed under
BSD

This new ISO contains kernel, OS, and software updates. In addition, I added a new command-line software called ghostbsd-version that gives you the GhostBSD version, FreeBSD version, kernel version, and OS version. At the date of this release, if you run ghostbsd-version or ghostbsd-version -v, it should output 21.11.24. This version number will be increment by the date of new packages built on packages every update performed. The ISO version is now following the last package's build version instead of an ISO's build date in the hope of removing confusion about the ISO version.

GhostBSD 21.11.24 Update Download

  • GhostBSD 21.11.24 Update Download - itsfoss.net

    The release of the desktop-oriented distribution kit GhostBSD 21.11.24 , built on the basis of FreeBSD 13-STABLE and offering a user environment MATE, has been published. By default, GhostBSD uses the ZFS file system. Both work in Live-mode and installation on a hard disk are supported (using its own installer ginstall, written in Python). Boot images are built for the x86_64 architecture (2.6 GB).

    The new version includes the ghostbsd-version utility to display the version of GhostBSD, the base FreeBSD version, the FreeBSD kernel used and the system environment. The repos package has been added to the repository with information about the current version of the repository. On the system, version information has been added to the / etc / version file updated by the ghostbsd-build toolkit and the update installation manager. In the dialog shown after the installation of updates is complete, the restart button is now displayed first on the right.

6 Reasons to Pick Linux Over Windows

Almost all students do their work on laptops and PCs that run on Windows. Of course, some of you are lucky enough to afford something that runs on Apple’s macOS. While Windows is a popular OS, it’s far from being perfect. Few students are even aware that their PCs and laptops can run on various operating systems.

One of the alternatives students often overlook is Linux. Many believe that this OS is hard to manage. That’s why they prefer to either buy or, in some cases, pirate Microsoft’s creation unless it comes pre-installed on the device, of course.

It’s true that Linux is harder to install than its counterpart. But it has a lot more to offer than meets the eye. So, what exactly sets it apart?

  • Early Days at Bell Labs

    It's Brian Kernighan discussing the formation of Unix, starting from the back story of the creation of Bell Labs, including predecessors CTSS and Multics, and C predecessors BCPL which was modified to become B, and why Dennis Richie added types to B to make C.

    This video really hits its stride when Kernighan discusses piping and redirection, and the ease of creating wonderful things out of small parts that, and Kernighan used these words, "do one thing and do it well."

What Distribution and Version Pulled You into Linux?

I recently watched a video posted by my good friend (and former Linux Journal colleague) Shawn Powers introducing viewers to Linux and Linux distributions. And it got me thinking about my own personal experience and when I first started to dabble in the world of open source operating systems.
