Today is the day that FreeBSD moves to using clang by default. This is not necessarily a surprise, but I like the finality of calling it “Clang-Day”. I think Clang will probably be the next compiler brought into DragonFly’s base system, instead of the next release of gcc. Don’t make any bets on my statement, though [...]
After posting the original plan, I’ve made a few changes, highlighted below in bold Here is what I’m thinking of getting: SUPERMICRO MBD-H8SGL-O ATX Server Motherboard : $224.99 AMD Opteron 6128 Magny-Cours 2.0GHz 8 x 512KB L2 Cache 12MB L3 Cache Socket G34 115W 8-Core Server : $259.99 Kingston 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Registere [...]
The third RC build for the FreeBSD-9.1 release cycle is now available. ISO images for the amd64, i386, sparc64, and powerpc64 architectures are available on most of our FreeBSD mirror sites.
I think I may have to put together a new server. For home use.

John Marino is working on a very good idea: bringing bmake into DragonFly as a replacement for the current ‘make’. bmake is going through more active development and apparently also in use/will be used? on FreeBSD, so syncing up with the same make flavor as FreeBSD and NetBSD will help everyone. It’ll also remove the probl [...]
I’m sitting in the The Warden – FreeBSD and Linux Jail Management talk at EuroBSDCon 2012. He has mentioned two things, so far, that give me ideas. Evil ideas. Put each jail in a different ZFS data set – this may be useful for my jails running Bacula regression testing Schedule cron jobs to do [...]
I see many examples and man pages on how to do operations like search-and-replace using sed. But, I want to match a given string or a regular pattern expression and display on the screen. How do I print lines with matching pattern using sed command only under Unix like operating systems?Read answer to: \"Linux / Unix: sed Command (Read more [...]

Sascha Wildner has committed Markus Pfeiffer’s port of USB4BSD to DragonFly. USB network, input , audio, and storage devices (including xhci/USB3 items) may work, though there’s no guarantee for each driver. This is added but not on by default, so see the first link for instructions on how to rebuild your kernel to use it. Thi [...]
The second RC build for the FreeBSD-9.1 release cycle is now available. ISO images for the amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc, and powerpc64 architectures are available on most of our FreeBSD mirror sites.
Last night, I found that I had a number of unused ZFS snapshots. I decided to destroy some of them. The first destroy locked up the system. Nagios reported everything was dead. I remotely power cycled the system. After it came back, I noticed that a scrub was in progress. This had not been initiated [...]
