Release Info

We provide two different images a ISO for burning to a CD/DVD, and a IMG file for flashing to a USB stick using a utility like dd. Both images are intended for new installations only; an existing PacBSD system can always be updated with pacman -Syu.

Existing PacBSD Users

If you are an existing PacBSD user, there is no need to download a new image to update your existing system. You may be looking for an updated mirrorlist instead.

If you can spare the bytes, please leave the client open after your download is finished, so you can seed it back to others. A web-seed capable client is recommended for fastest download speeds.

HTTP Direct Downloads

In addition to the BitTorrent links above, install images can also be downloaded via HTTP from the mirror sites listed below. Please ensure the download image matches the checksum from the md5sums.txt or sha1sums.txt file in the same directory as the image.
