It would be nice to have the possibility to select and change the base for jails at any time. E.g. to switch from FreeBSD.org base to self build base.tgz before or after a jail is constructed.
notes: some of the improvements for this task were made as part of #367, now we can easy manage sources for bases via config files.
so you can do 'cbsd removebase' , 'cbsd removebase ver=XX' and try to start jail again to get selector for base source.
anyway, something like 'world-tui' would be nice to implement as well as 'basename' in jconstruct-tui/jconfig. therefore, I will leave this task open and apparently it will be implemented after 12.0.4 release so that some testing time for #367 has passed.
Well, the ability to work with different bases was from the very first CBSD versions ( basename, see: https://www.bsdstore.ru/en/base_cbsd.html ). However, we lacked the usual management for this.
The 'basename' was returned to 'jconstruct-tui'. In addition, added register_basename args to 'installworld' and 'repo' script which governs the alternate base name obtained from the relevant sources. E.g:
or set basename in 'jconfig' or 'jconstruct-tui'.
Note: 'basename' menu item available only when you have named bases ( see: "cbsd bases" output ).
Will be available in the next CBSD release: 12.0.14
