    Solved do I need to do bectl create updates prior to freebsd-update fetch install

    I'm cleaning up my notes now that I'm committed to running FreeBSD on my desktop full-time. I noticed that when I run freebsd-update it creates a snapshot of the environment? So, in theory, I shouldn't need to create one prior to running the command. Is what freebsd-update doing sufficient if...

    In Simple Terms: How do I Merge During [freebsd-update -r]

    Hello everyone, The FreeBSD Handbook, chapter 26, concerning my question is presently still using jargon beyond my level of learning; searching the forum, the Internet, YouTube, etc. did not yield an explanation for my rather basic question. I hope I do not disturb the quality of the forums by...

    Upgrading ZFS/zpool under FreeBSD 14?

    Hello there. Just upgraded from 13.2 to 14.0 RELEASE, via freebsd-update tool. I guess I manually need to execute command for ZFS update/upgrade, after FreeBSD upgrade from 13.2 to 14, right? I'd like to be careful on this step because this is a remote dedicated server with no physical access...

    Solved Upgrade to 12.4 from 12.3 - sshd_config file trashed

    I have a number of special settings in /etc/ssh/sshd_config. When I tried to upgrade from 12.3 to 12.4 the config merge process removes everyone of them including the ListenAddress which disables sshd altogether. I do not recall having this difficulty with previous upgrades. Is my memory going...

    freebsd-update fetch & install, reverted my patch level from p4 to p3, but reports it's p5?

    Something very odd just occurred on my laptop when I performed a freebsd-update fetch & install. When I did the fetch it reported that there was a new patch (I was already on p4), so I then performed the "freebsd-update install" as usual and then did a reboot. When I checked it using uname -a...

    One major difference that I found between Linux and FreeBSD || How frequently do you install updates ?

    After moving from Arch Linux to FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE-p7 one major difference that I found was the fact that under all Linux distros there is only one update mechanism which updates both the base and user land packages. For example under Debian/Ubuntu you need to run only sudo apt update && sudo...
