Upgrade path for TrueOS Edge


#1

I’m using TrueOS Edge, but it’s growing increasingly out of date. The kernel build dates from late March. Since then, there have been 4 FreeBSD SAs and 39 vulnerabilities in the packages (totalling 356 CVEs). At this point I assume that TrueOS is abandoned in favor of Trident. So what’s the upgrade path to a supported FreeBSD-based OS? Or do I need to do a complete reinstall with plain FreeBSD or GhostBSD?


#2

I’d be interested to know that too. Please.

It is (of what they call “legacy” TOS).
There was however some tos-server release in June.
And successful builds of trident, but no releases.


#3

There is no EDGE, either STABLE or UNSTABLE

Patience on the Trident release. It’s being worked on

http://www.project-trident.org/ is the web site

Once it’s ready for release, it’ll be announced there, here, and https://t.me/TrueOSCommunity

Until then search here for Trident, and this blog entry

I think Unstable used to be called “Edge” and Stable used to be called “Production.” Now we use Stable and Unstable instead of EDGE, and PRODUCTION.


#5

My bad. works for me.


#6

Yeah, unstable is equal to edge, AFAIK. about returns
