16
17Four release options are now available for 32-bit as well as for 64-bit. 64-bit installations are recommended if you do not need the linux emulation layer.
18
19* An ISO, to be burned to a physical CD or used as an image to install a virtual machine.
20* A bootable USB disk-key image. (minimum 2G USB stick needed)
21* A GUI bootable ISO image with a full X environment. DVD disc required.
22* A GUI bootable USB disk-key image with a full X environment. (minimum 4G USB stick needed)
23* The GUI images also include a snapshot of our git repos in /usr/src/.git and /usr/pkgsrc/.git which can be incrementally updated after the installation.
24
25The release ISO images should be available on most of the [[mirrors|mirrors]]. If the ISO is not available on a certain mirror, please try another one or download it from the DragonFly master site. Each image is in the "Live CD" format, meaning that it boots into a running and fully functional DragonFly system, which can be used for testing or system recovery tasks as well as installation. Check the [hardware page](http://www.dragonflybsd.org/docs/supportedhardware/) or boot a Live CD to check for compatibility.
26
27The GUI bootable USB image also contains the DragonFly git repo in /usr/src and the pkgsrc git repo in /usr/pkgsrc. The code can be trivially checked out using these repos and can be incrementally updated from master sites, post-install.

44### pkgsrc packages
45
46We offer roughly 10,000 pre-built [pkgsrc](http://www.pkgsrc.org) packages for this release. The [pkg_radd(1)](http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/cgi/web-man?command=pkg_radd&section=ANY) utility may be used to download pre-built binary packages. The path can be overridden by setting BINPKG_BASE in `/etc/pkg_radd.conf`.
47
48To get a list of all packages, let [pkg_search(1)](http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/cgi/web-man?command=pkg_search&section=ANY) download the summary file for that release:
49
50 # pkg_search -d
51
52We supply a Makefile in `/usr` to track the pkgsrc tree and we supply a Git mirror of the NetBSD pkgsrc CVS repo at `git://git.dragonflybsd.org/pkgsrcv2.git`. We recommend that users use it, instead of pulling from NetBSD with CVS. Our Git mirror is updated several times a day. Type 'make' in /usr to see the available commands for performing these actions.

54## DragonFly 3.0 Special Installation and Upgrade Notes
55
56**Disk size warning** - Unless your hard disk is 50G or larger, we recommend doing a UFS install and not the default HAMMER install. We also recommend installing from the CD ISO, not the GUI .img, for smaller drives. A more serious installation should use HAMMER with at least 50G of disk space and can install from the GUI .img. HAMMER on smaller disk drives is possible but requires careful pruning to keep from filling the disk with file history.
57
58**Virtual PC users** - Virtual PC does not supply serial numbers for the virtual disks. The system may need to be manually directed in the boot loader if the disk identifier changes. (Hit ? in the boot loader for a list of available volumes.)
59
60**Qemu users** - If you see a large number of error messages on the console when booting, you may need to boot DragonFly with ACPI disabled. This can be done in the menu presented at initial boot. If that doesn't help, try placing hw.ioapic_enable=0 in /boot/loader.conf.
61
62**Installer Crypt Options** - The installer can encrypt the root volume and the swap volume. It will not work properly for other volumes despite any additional check-boxes you might see. Installer and boot-time support works but is still a bit rough around the edges. Performance will be relatively high on multi-core machines.
