Feb 24, 2017. TrueOS is a rolling release operating system based on FreeBSD. The TrueOS team has released a new snapshot of the operating system’s Desktop and Server editions. The new snapshot includes several bug fixes, a few new services and package updates. TrueOS 2017-02-22 also includes support for automounting devices and a new jail management utility: “Automounting – This new feature allows auto-detection and mounting of inserted USB devices. It also automatically unmounts USB devices when the user ceases accessing the device. See the blog post on automounting for more details about this useful new feature. New jail utilities jbootstrap (requires being run once to fetch base packages), jinit, and jdestroy are available. These support OpenRC development and add other functionality. See the blog post on these new jail utilities for more details.“
Creating a bootable USB key using a Un*x-like system:
The command would likely be, under TrueOS/PCBSD:
dd if=YourTrueOS.img of=/dev/da0 bs=1m
where da0 is the device and number. You can find the correct device number
by checking dmesg(8) when inserting the media.
Happy TrueOS 😀
