  • I guess I just like to live on the rising edge …

    I saw the upgrade this morning - checked the release notes and did the download, backup and upgrade option from the pfSense menu.  I'm running on an old  Dell PC i386 and I only have a few packages so I didn't bother uninstalling them - the upgrade worked like a charm as always.

    Took a snapshot of my vm, clicked upgrade.. All went smooth..  All packages reinstalled, in via openvpn from work as we speak.

    freeradius and snort to big packages I would of be concerned with and looks to be no issues.

  • I have just upgraded two nanoBSD installations (Soekris net5601 and Alix.2D13) from 2.2.4 to 2.2.5 without any problems. I am not having any packages installed on both systems.

  • Upgrade worked quite ok, no problems.
