#280 closed System Defect (fixed)

upgrading FreeBSD is not possible

Reported by: atrox Owned by: kris
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: Installer Version: 8.0
Keywords: Cc: trac-bugs@…


I installed a fresh FreeBSD-7.1 and tried to upgrade it with PC-BSD installer. It doesn't seem possible, because when I select Upgrade, the system is not listed there.

  • Type changed from System Enhancement to System Defect

Interesting.. I installed FreeBSD 8.0 onto another drive of the same machine and after restarting both systems showed up as upgradable. Upgrading 7.1 worked now OK, the only problem is that FreeBSD (minimal installation) was upgraded to full PC-BSD.

After booting up the upgraded system, some users were reported missing: polkit, haldaemon, avahi.
