[SOLVED] 2.2.4 amd64 upgraded to 2.2.5 i386!



  • Hi there,

    I remotely upgrade through webgui a APU amd64 2.2.4 pfSense full install.

    All seemed to went fine until I discoved FreeBSD system packages installed myself not working anymore…

    What a suprise, the system switch to i386 !

    Any idea of what happened ?

    How can I remotely revert to AMD64 ?

    Thanks and regards



  • My guess would be that the firmware update was pointing at the i386 version.

    As for remotely reverting.  Have you look at System: Firmware Restore Full Backup tab?
    You may also be able to do a Manual Update to get to the version you want.

    I have no experience at reverting from one version to another.  So operate at you own risk.  Those are just a couple of ideas you may want to check into.



  • You had the wrong update URL hard coded in your config. Go to System>Firmware, Updater Settings and uncheck "Use an unofficial server for firmware upgrades" and save. Then it'll pull the appropriate auto-update going forward.

    To switch back, load the 64 bit full update file. You'll have to power cycle at the end, it can't run the 64 bit reboot binary on a 32 bit kernel.



  • You were true ! Thanks guys !

    I think my updater url was wrong because the hardware was upgraded from i386 (Alix Nano) to amd64 (APU) a few month ago. And the config file store this information.

    Everything is working as expected now ! Sorry for noise :)

    Regards



  • Glad to hear it. 2.3 changes things there where switching architecture on upgrade won't happen as it won't let you do it, but in the mean time, if you restore a config cross-architecture, make sure you don't have that set before you upgrade the restored system.

    Same problem as you.

    To try to correct I have downloaded the Full Update 2.2.5 for amd64 tar ball.
    I have run the manually update with the tgz file.
    It's still in progress.
    I'll keep in touch.
