Post Installation

This page contains a common set of tasks to take after installing Void on a new machine.


Installation media contains a snapshot of packages from the day it was made. After installing and connecting the the network, new systems should be updated:

# xbps-install -Su

This will ensure that your system has applicable security patches and software upgrades that happened after the installation media was created.

Note: XBPS must use a separate transaction to update itself. If your first update includes the package xbps, you will need to run an additional update for the rest of the system.
