• I installed from pfSense-2.0-BETA5-amd64-20110206-0701.iso.gz which has is from this build:

    Sun Feb  6 04:29:53 EST 2011 -|- >>> Starting builder run #5
      Sun Feb  6 04:29:53 EST 2011 -|- >>> Not building pfPorts at all during this snapshot builder looped run…
      Sun Feb  6 04:29:53 EST 2011 -|- >>> Last known commit  Chris Buechler  - c7f70dbc78d11f7304f2e363850a5fdeb9cfa66e

    After installing, the "System: Firmware: Auto Update" page shows update is available even though the "new version" is from the same "run #5" as the full installer:

    A new version is now available

    Current version: 2.0-BETA5
          Built On: Sun Feb  6 07:01:51 EST 2011
        New version: Sun Feb  6 07:52:05 EST 2011

    Update source: http://snapshots.pfsense.org/FreeBSD_RELENG_8_1/amd64/pfSense_HEAD/.updaters/

    Since both full installer and updater appear to be produced from the same last known commit and build run ("builder run #5), the update available should be suppressed, right?  I think they were created from same builder run according to the log ("Sun Feb  6 04:29:53 EST 2011 -|- >>> Starting builder run #5"):


  • No because the update files from snapshots have a diff timestamp than the iso, it won't be an issue on normal releases.
