How to disable Update Availability check in dashboard
How do we disable the Update Availability check on the dashboard?
There isn't currently a way to do that.
Just committed an option for that.
That patch doesn't apply cleanly to 2.0.x but it's a fairly simple set of changes that could be made by hand. (Or you could just look at the code that the new option disables, and remove it)
Saves us the trouble of having to manually search and alter code and then repeat it when version changes!
Works great JimP … Thanks.
Now I won't be tempted to upgrade to new snap every couple of days because of seeing that update is available taunting me ;)
For the record it is placed at
System -> Firmware -> Upgrade Settings tab.
The link for the upstream github commit is:
In the case of v2.0.3 if no change to the code is done, Update Check URL box is checked and the URL fields is left blank.
Patch for this issue for pfSense v2.0.3 is now attached herein, being back ported from the 2.1 branch.
