Upgrade Question: Have 1.2.3, full install, serial console - Solved



  • Need guidance on upgrading from 1.2.3REL to 2.0RC1:  My pfSense box is the Netgate Hamakua with a hard drive; i.e., full install but with embedded kernel to enable the serial console.

    In the 1.2.3 config file, I don't see any entry regarding the kernel.  If I upgrade using the Firmware –> Manual Update tab, selecting the pfSense-Full-Update-2.0-RC1-i386-20110226-1429.tgz file, will the embedded kernel automatically be installed?


  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    Check the contents of /boot/kernel/pfsense_kernel.txt

    If that says just "wrap" then you should be OK.



  • Thanks, Jim…the proper kernel was installed; however, ran into other problems and started a separate thread for that.
