I’ve held off on migrating from PC-BSD to TrueOS until now, largely because of Lumina (I prefer Gnome3). I imagine that by now I can install gnome on TrueOS from packages, and can get through the Legacy NVIDIA driver issues without too much trouble. I’m installed on a mirrored 2Tx2 system drive(s), and I link to a FreeNAS nfs link.
Even with PC-BSD, I’ve never had a smooth update using the automated upgrade tools, and so I wonder if:
1.) an automated upgrade path from PC-BSD (see below for revision info) to TrueOS is possible, and if so, how?
2.) whether I should do a clean install anyways to lose Grub?
3.) there is something else that I don’t know about?
Any input would be helpful, as I’m not watching the TrueOS development as closely as I probably should have, but PC-BSD is starting to get a bit crufty …
