Obtaining DragonFly BSD assets¶
DragonFly BSD has two versions available:
RELEASE: Typically this is the recommended version to run for regular users. It is supposed to be stable and receives fixes when needed, i.e. patches for security, stability and sometimes, although less often, features.
Bleeding-edge: This version receives all the ongoing development thus, at times, it is less stable and can produce more crashes. This version is recommended for developers.
Type of content¶
Every mirror may have the following content:
- DPorts binary packages.
- Release ISOs and images.
- Snapshot ISO, images and kernels.
- Git source code repositories.
The complete list of mirrors is here.
Select the version you want to want to download, according to your needs:
RELEASE 6.4.0 ISO (bz2) RELEASE 6.4.0 IMG (bz2)
MD5 sums for RELEASE are here.
BLEEDING-EDGE ISO (bz2) BLEEDING-EDGE IMG (bz2)
We don't provide MD5 sums for Bleeding-edge at the moment, but we will!
