New snapshots not found



  • I'm on a build from the 28th of April, since everything up to May 2nd destroys my installation.
    The in-house updater sees only the snapshot from May 1st and nothing after, despite seeing one as recent as the 4th on the FTP.
    I understand I can manually update, but I don't know if these last snapshots are going to bork my install again.
    Anyways. Just notifying the developers.



  • Snapshot that was built on "5-May-14 12:15" (for example) still carries the date "20140501-0223" encoded in the file name.  That is probably what the dashboard is looking at.



  • This is nice to know, but how can I check that I get a more recent snap? The kldstat issues with the 1st of May snap seems to be there still, even though blog posts the last few days indicate that they should be fixed. Is there anywhere on the initial boot (console logs - recent snaps enter a reboot loop on my system, so no web gui) where it says the date? Could perhaps be nice to have.

    You know, if the guy in charge devoted more time to doing something useful instead of insulting users, alienating the community and crippling the -tools repo to the point where it fails to compile anything, maybe some work could be actually done. The snapshots builder has been broken more often than not since the time the guy started to care about trademarks instead of coding.



  • New snapshots have been posted now with correct dates for you to consider.

    please stop the spam!
    The tools repo works better than previously and if you have issues bring them in a different thread.

    Thanks.  My system does correctly report that a new version is available.

    @Fegu, if you still have problems detecting a new version is available, please show what you have entered into the base URL in the updater settings page.



  • Shows correct date now. Will try this image tonight.
