Release Notes

Application/Package Availability

Every single release includes a manifest of all the packages and versions that are available in the repository. This plaintext file can easily be downloaded from the package server

If the package does not appear on the list

  1. See if a port exists for FreeBSD using freshports.org
    • No Port: You can follow the FreeBSD Porters Handbook to create a new port, and then submit it either to FreeBSD or to TrueOS. Once accepted by either project, the port will become available by Project Trident a short time later.
  2. See if the port is failing to build by looking at the port build logs.

Known Issues

  • VirtualBox Guest: When resizing the window for the Project Trident VM, there may be a delay in the session detecting/adjusting to the new “screen” size. When using the Lumina desktop, you may also need to run killall fluxbox from the command-line to re-initialize the window manager if the borders around windows disappear after a session resize from outsize the VM.
    • Bug Bypass: Use the “Preferences -> Display” settings utility (lumina-xconfig) from within the VM to change the session size. This will ensure that the session resize is performed in a consistent manner for the entire VM.
