Upgrade Ysul to FreeBSD 11
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In September 2016 will be released FreeBSD 11.

We'll then upgrade Ysul to this version.

This is perhaps an opportunity to switch from the -RELEASE model to the -STABLE model.

New release date according the calendar: 28 September 2016

Scheduled at 2016-10-18 14:00 UTC.

According an upgrade to 10.3 is required as a milestone.

First reboot worked well, now next step is upgrading from 10.3 to 11.

Network doesn't respond after the second reboot, I'm reconfiguring it.

Meanwhile, I'm upgrading userland too.

There are missing files, locales for example.

I'm reinstalling from scratch a sane FreeBSD 11.0 system to restore such files. I'll keep /etc, /home, etc. as is.
