Barely getting this done in time for Saturday… FreeBSD can now download firmware for Samsung drives. FreeBSD has updated ipfilter to 5.1.2. FreeBSD has updated to OpenPAM Nummularia. On FreeBSD, clang means no gcc or libstdc++. (part of the switch) FreeBSD has new Hyper-V drivers. NetBSD has support for the ’4G Systems XS Stick [...]
The first ALPHA build for the FreeBSD-10.0 release cycle is now available. ISO images for the amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc and sparc64 architectures are available on most of our FreeBSD mirror sites.
The fourth 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.
There’s been a lot of commit activity across the BSDs, but my list doesn’t seem to reflect that. A lot of incremental work, I suppose. FreeBSD has imported the multiqueue VirtIO driver FreeBSD has added support for the BCM20702A0 chipset, for Bluetooth adapters. FreeBSD can now reach single user mode with Digi i.MX53 / Wi-i.MX53 [...]
It\'s been a long month. Pretty much the same as any other August. BSD folks were really busy so we can get some fresh releases.Here is a list of some (based on time of release, from beginning till end of August +-).FreeNAS 9.1.0The FreeNAS development team is delighted to announce the general release of FreeNAS 9.1.0. This (Read [...]
I need to update this post during the week as I see stuff, or else I spend an hour rushing to get it all together before Satuday. I need to start watching PC-BSD src changes, too. DiscoverBSD has a recent BSD roundup, too. EuroBSDCon registration is 20% off but just today. Using 6rd in OpenBSD. FreeBSD has imported (Read more...)
Sascha Wildner has ported rum(4), run(4), and urtwn(4) from FreeBSD to DragonFly, to work within the not-yet-default new USB framework. This happened some days ago, but I’m just now catching up.
The third 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.
I hope I’m catching the interesting stuff; I’m only reading the src changes. A talk about pkgsrc at a YAPC conference. FreeBSD has improved parallel read performance by changing how locks work. FreeBSD has enabled VFP in QEMU. No, I don’t know what that means. FreeBSD has upgraded to BIND 9.9.3-P2. FreeBSD has imported Net [...]
My ZFS system hits a high load average every week during its scrub. Here is what top looks like after I pressed i and then S: last pid: 42049; load averages: 3.78, 3.26, 3.42 up 18+13:47:14 11:43:01 220 processes: 3 running, 216 sleeping, 1 waiting CPU: 7.5% user, 0.0% nice, 12.8% system, 1.2% interrupt, 78.5% [...]
Michael W. Lucas has a short article up about sysrc, a FreeBSD tool for handling rc.conf across multiple machines. This could easily be a cross-BSD tool – hint, hint. Update: as Sascha Wildner pointed out, rcrun covers that in DragonFly. Mostly I’d like to see the same interface, then, I guess?
Last week in BSDFreeBSD 9.2-RC2 - JabirOS 1.0.1 - DragonFly BSD GSoC - Viking OS - OpenBSD 64-bit time - BSDTalk - vBSDConReleasesFreeBSD 9.2-RC2 has been announced.

I’m in the process of setting up a new gateway/firewall. The new hardware will be faster and have more space. At present, the old firewall is also providing DHCP and DNS services. I want to move those off the gateway and onto another server. Why? I want the gateway to run only services that are [...]
For future reference, this is the knew server. It runs a few jails, including Bacula regression testing services.
For future reference, this is the slocum server, which I use for various jails and services:
Today I created the new gateway machine. It is a ZFS-only system with 3x3TB drives in a mirror configuration. The hardware was my old ZFS workhorse, now replaced by something with more storage. I had a moment of panic, thinking this server had just one NIC, but I was wrong. em0 will be the local [...]
The second 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.
