Default Upgrading vanilla FreeBSD 7-STABLE to the lastest PC-BSD
Hi,

I am wondering whether there is a proven method for turning a vanilla FreeBSD installation into a PC-BSD without doing complete re-installation?

I mean, should it be possible to, for example, copy the overlays and PC-BSD directories from the DVD to my hard disk, over the currently installed system? Any other tweaks necessary?

Thanks!

You would have to adapt it to changes made in PC-BSD since then, but Converting FreeBSD into PC-BSD (unsupported!) might be a starting point.

Some people do crazy things when they get bored >_>
