Several book links this week. Openbsd router, can it run on arm? (via) Lumina Desktop Getting Ready for FreeBSD 11.0. “FreeBSD Mastery: Specialty Filesystems” now available! Next two book titles are in there, too. “FreeBSD Mastery: Advanced ZFS” Table of Contents. Winter arrivals. (related to previous post) Upcoming OpenBSD Se [...]
If you have a Broadwell system, the drm.i915.enable_execlists tunable added by Imre Vadász may keep your system stable. (thanks, zach on EFNet #dragonflybsd)
It would help with Burp, which is being ported to a number of BSDs.
BSDNow 128 has an interview of Nick Wolff, the usual roundup of news items, and I’m sure something that matches the title of the episode, but I haven’t listened to it yet.
Rimvydas Jasinskas has consolidated/restored/updated a large number of papers into share/doc on DragonFly. I’m not going to link to his large number of commits, but instead point you at the directory where they all went. There’s a number of design documents in there that date back to 4.4BSD and beyond (and some much newer), whic [...]
If you’re building from dports, and you want to include debugging information, you’ll want to put ‘WITH_DEBUG=yes’ in /etc/make.conf. Note that this affects anything you build at that point, including world, which you’d want to rebuild anyway.
These probably apply cross-BSD, but in this case, it’s DragonFly tips for printing with CUPS.
Last night, I managed to install new (but used) SAS cables for my Dell TL4000 on the tape01 server. I managed to get bacula-sd running, but I was unable to communicate with it from bacula-dir, via bconsole on my laptop. Eventually, I ran bacula-sd from the command line in the foreground and with debugging and [...]
A bit nostalgic this week. Pardon My French, But This Code Is C.R.A.P., parts one and two. (via) dungeoncrawlers.org, a comprehensive list of exactly that. (via) Showrunner: the Game. Scroll down about halfway. A roguelike! Why so much Internet video is viral but no longer weird. For those who remember Portal of (Read more...)
Lots and lots this week! SCaLE 14x Recap. On ZFS in Debian. BSD is still a better place for ZFS. (via) Anyone using FreeBSD or another BSD in production? How do you like it? NetBSD/amd64 7.0 on kvm. (via) VIMAGE Coming Soon to FreeBSD. Initial FreeBSD RISC-V Architecture Port Committed. Has (Read more...)
The first BETA build for the FreeBSD 10.3 release cycle is now available. ISO images for the amd64, armv6, i386, powerpc, powerpc64 and sparc64 architectures are available on most of our FreeBSD mirror sites.
If you have a Core2 processor in a DragonFly system, it may not work with accelerated video. If that happens to you with this (admittedly old) processor, switch to VESA for now.
Once again, I’m a bit late posting about BSDNow; blame my classes. BSDNow episode 127 is up, with Willem Toorop as the interview subject, talking about getdns, with a link to his vBSDCon presentation.
In this post, I am using FreeBSD 10.2 and Bacula 7.4.0. I am now the proud second-hand owner of a Dell TL4000. The first thing I did was add an air filter. Why? Because I can. I got one made, with custom dimensions, by DEMCiflex. You can see that filter here in this photo. My [...]
The new SFF-8088 to SFF-8088 SAS cables have arrived and have been connected to the LSI 9200-8E SAS card and to the Dell TL4000 tape library. The updated the dmesg output etc and appear on this page, for future reference. The significant portion is: I will have to investigate those no free space available messages [...]
Ruslan Bukin, a research engineer at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory has committed kernel support for the FreeBSD RISC-V port to the FreeBSD source tree. This is the latest in a series of commits including user space support, making his work at the University of Cambridge more accessible to the broader open-source h [...]
The slides from yesterday’s shell-fu presentation at NYCBUG have been posted.
NYCBUG is having a presentation tomorrow, February 3rd, 18:45, Stone Creek Bar & Lounge at 140 E 27th St. in New York City. The presenter will be Isaac Levy and the title is “shell-fu”. .ike is an energetic speaker and it’s worth your time if you are near enough.
BSDTalk 261 is up, and it’s a half-hour conversation with Kris Moore about jails, system management, and other I assume PC-BSD features.
AsiaBSDCon 2016 is happening in Tokyo, March 10-13. Registration for it opens today. The registration page isn’t up as I post this, but I assume very soon. (via)
