Definitely Saturdays for this summary. In other BSDs this week: It’s FreeBSD, but it can apply to any BSD where a personal attribution license is used: Julian Elischer’s name comes with every iPhone. cxgbe(4) cards can now display their temperature under FreeBSD. ciss(4) supports additional HP RAID controllers under FreeBSD. Bin [...]
Francois Tigeot has ported TTM to DragonFly from FreeBSD and I think a bit from OpenBSD. All this work has led to an update in the driver porting notes.
I use FreeBSD. I’ve used it since 1998. For me, it does good stuff, reliably, and predictably. The community is very supportive and helpful. That goes a long way when choosing your open source operating system. Included within FreeBSD, since FreeBSD 4.0 in March 2000, is a great tool for separating out services and to [...]

A few weeks ago, I moved some Bacula Volumes from one Storage Daemon to another. In fact, I was decommissioning the old bacula-sd and creating a new one. I copied all the Volumes over. Backups have been running smoothly ever since. However. Today I tried a restore. It failed. Without any useful diagnostic information. Here [...]
We are pleased to announce the publication of our 2013 Semi-Annual Newsletter! This is a chance for you to read about what we are doing to help make FreeBSD the best operating system available.
I’ve been building up a new server lately. Now I’m ready to move the tape library from the old host to thew new host. As I opened the new server to insert the existing SCSI card, I discovered that I needed a new SCSI card. It just would not fit. This is the card I [...]
The first RC build for the FreeBSD-9.2 release cycle is now available. ISO images for the amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc, powerpc64 and sparc64 architectures are available on most of our FreeBSD mirror sites.
Michael W. Lucas wrote a blog post about pkgng and Ansible on FreeBSD. Will it work on DragonFly? We already have pkgng on DragonFly in the form of dports, and Ansible… might work? Please, someone try.

I’m in the process of moving a system from one server to another. Today, I’m going to try moving a jail using ezjail-admin archive. The two systems I am copying jails between these two systems: source: FreeBSD 8.4-RELEASE destination: FreeBSD 9.1-RELEASE-p4 I really am interested to see if this works. Creating the archive Best pra [...]
Tonight I created a new jail, and later installed sudo into that jail. Then I tried to run sudo: $ sudo make install clean sudo: effective uid is not 0, is sudo installed setuid root? What? It is setuid: $ ls -l `which sudo` -rwsr-xr-x 1 root wheel 117112 Jul 26 17:08 /usr/local/bin/sudo I had [...]
Here’s what jumped out at me from reading source change mailing lists: pkgsrc now has Ruby 2.0. NetBSD now has wpa_supplicant and hostapd, and dhcpcd 6.0.3. NetBSD supports Nanjing QinHeng Electronics devices via puc(4). No idea what that is. NetBSD also supports Intel 8 Series SMBus devices, which I mention just because finding the r [...]
After the zfs send, I had system/foo/bar, but I really just wanted system/bar. How do I fix that? mv(1) was my first guess. I was wrong. What I wanted was zfs(8) rename. Let me explain. After doing my: zfs send email@example.com:06:33 | mbuffer | ssh -t firstname.lastname@example.org \'zfs receive system/usr/local/bacula/FromKrake [...]
Today it finished. That ZFS send I started on Monday finally finished. Recap The original command was: # zfs send email@example.com:06:33 | mbuffer | ssh -t firstname.lastname@example.org \'zfs receive system/usr/local/bacula/FromKraken\' That’s was the initial send of the filesystem. But more data has been added to it. So I [...]
Earlier today, I started a zfs send | zfs receive between the old file server and the new file server. It won’t finish until early morning tomorrow. [root@kraken ~]# zfs send email@example.com:06:33 | mbuffer | ssh -t firstname.lastname@example.org \'zfs receive system/usr/local/bacula/FromKraken\' Pseudo-terminal will [...]
