I installed the latest
nomadbsd-130R-20210508.amd64.img image to disk, and I decided to update FreeBSD in case it would resolve some issues. The utility printed a NomadBSD kernel error:
WARNING: This system is running a "nomadbsd" kernel, which is not a kernel configuration distributed as part of FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE. This kernel will not be updated: you MUST update the kernel manually before running "/usr/sbin/freebsd-update install".
In the below page, the advise is to ignore the custom kernel and continue:
I have tried “Yes” but then it fails to find mirrors with
13.0-RELEASE-p3. I’m including the full output of the attempted
freebsd-update for your reference.
Is there a way to upgrade the kernel easily, or should I leave this is a project for when I have more time?
