Just upgraded a system from 13.1 to 13.2.
All straight forward:
freebsd-update -r 13.2-RELEASE upgrade
shutdown -r now
shutdown -r now
The system booted as normal, prompting for the zfs encryption password. FreeBSD loader...

I installed FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE last fall with the help of this forum. I haven't updated the computer since then, and have basically just ensured that, with my current install, the OS and KDE work and I am able to use Firefox...
Using "bectl" I create boot-environments.
Now i want these boot-environments to be as "small/little" as possible.
I can do this by moving directories in separate datasets.
A few directories which come to my mind to remove them from the boot-environment are:
Hello. I'm trying to emulate Freebsd for arm64 on my jetson nano (arm64) using qemu and kvm. This is the script that I'm using :

The package data in /usr/local/poudriere/data/packages – how best to make this available?
A symbolic link, maybe?

While testing the capabilities of beadm and boot environments on a spare machine, I deleted the /boot directory, and the system would no longer boot. With competent help from IRC, I was able to recover without booting a rescue system (except in case 3c) as defined below). I'm here to describe...
I posted a new video in my FreeBSD video playlist about using ZFS BE's for doing safe (and unsafe) updates and changes. The videos aren't studio productions, by a long shot, but they should be instructive... Having been a newb, I'm hoping to make the videos I put up be useful for relative...
The Freebsd Handbook, section 12.2 on the boot process, contains a note that seems to state that Freebsd does not support direct UEFI booting.
The concern is that on our two Freebsd machines, the BIOS are set for UEFI.
The note reads:
Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks in advance.

kneitinger please, would you like to say a few words here?
Or should we await the next FreeBSD status report?

I upgraded work host to 11.1-RELEASE this morning using the following commands:
beadm create 11.1-RELEASE_2017-05-26
beadm mount 11.1-RELEASE_2017-05-26 /mnt
freebsd-update upgrade -b /mnt -d /mnt/var/db/freebsd-update -r 11.1-RELEASE

I like to install FreeBSD 11.0 with encrypted ZFS root and boot environments using four disks (stripped and mirrored). After the first reboot I got the following error:
BTX loader 1.00 BTX version is 1.02
Consoles: internal video/keyboard
BIOS drives C: is disk0
BIOS drives D: is disk1...
Thanks to Allan Jude for steering me through this on IRC and Warren Block for his feedback.
The new boot loader in 11.0 is able to boot encrypted ZFS pools directly. Yes, that means you can have full disk encryption (FDE) with ZFS on root and boot environments (BEs)...
