https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=257247 Bug ID: 257247 Summary: freebsd-update / pkg: add automation, no questions, continue from interrupted state Product: Base System Version: 13.0-STABLE Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Many People Priority: --- Component: bin Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: email@example.com Hello world :-) I was recently on extremely slow cellular connection with some old (laptop) machine with 12.0 that had to be upgraded to 13.0 before I could work on it. Unfortunately upgrade process was interrupted due poor internet connection. I had to restart is manually over and over, several times per day, and finally I abandoned the process. What is even worse I had to press Y on "does this sound reasonable" question. Is it possible to add -A (automation) option or something similar so: 1. the whole process does not ask questions. 2. the whole process restarts from where is was interrupted (i.e. connection broken). 3. I just get the information that download is completed and I can manually proceed. This option would be extremely helpful to both freebsd-update and pkg(-static) :-) Sure I need to maunally restart the machine, perform freebsd-update install, pkg-static update /upgrade, and again freebsd-update install. But the interrupted downloads seems to break whole process here and it would be really nice to have it "just do it for me even if there are connection problems" :-) Thank you for considering! :-) Tomek -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
