Upgrade 1.2.3 - 2.0 with gtar archive?



  • I am a very satisfied customer planning to upgrade from 1.2.3 to 2.0 on my Intel 386 based router.
    I am trying to follow the instructions to the letter, but bumped into this problem:

    When I download and save 'pfSense-Full-Update-2.0-RELEASE-i386.tgz' from the mirror the file extension is changed to 'gtar'.
    The sha256sum is correct. However the firmware upgrade page says the file must be a 'tgz'.

    I am using Debian Sid to download the file if that is relevant.
    What should I do?



  • Tried a different mirror and was able to download with correct extension.
    It seems that in some mirrors the files have the encoding "application/x-gtar" while others have encoding "application/x-tgz".
    Keeping fingers crossed :)



  • @zombie:

    The sha256sum is correct. However the firmware upgrade page says the file must be a 'tgz'.

    if sha256sum is ok, rename the file.
