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:
Not just source links, this week: OpenBSD no longer has the Y2038 problem. A head-mounted augmented reality display using FreeBSD? The 2013 EuroBSDCon is going to have a vendor summit (primarily FreeBSD, from the sounds of it). There’s a new BSD Certification Group training CD. NetBSD now supports the Sitecom N300 wifi adapter. Do you [...]
One of the most-requested items for the DragonFly mailing list archives is reverse sorting by date. Mailman, which is what’s being used now for archiving, doesn’t have a ‘native’ way to do that. Has anyone seen a trick/patch to get that to happen? I already patch Mailman to get the message date to show in listings.
Sepherosa Ziehau suggests this relatively easy task: adding a TSC cputimer to vkernels. Apparently most of the framework to do this is already in place.
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.
The Foundation is pleased to announce that Gábor Kövesdán has completed a funded project to improve the infrastructure behind the documentation project. Here is how Gabor describes the project.Our documentation infrastructure uses very old and discontinued standards and tools. The work on modernising it has already started but still not yet c [...]
Michael W. Lucas has a review up of Richard Bejtlich’s “The Practice of Network Security Monitoring“. Both of them are long-term BSD users, and Bejtlich, if I remember correctly, was part of the design of Capsicum, the security framework that is serving as a Summer of Code project for DragonFly right now. So it’s wor [...]
I’m a bit slow in posting this, but that’s OK since it’s a work in progress: Markus Pfeiffer has added some more work on USB4BSD porting to DragonFly, including some device-specific changes.
Hello guys, welcome to next part of my series about Google Summer of Code 2013. You might wanna read previous ones: Google Summer of Code 2013 - Introduction Google Summer of Code 2013 - NetBSDGoogle Summer of Code 2013 - DragonFlyBSDThis time I will continue writing about FreeBSD. First part is here.What is FreeBSD?FreeBSD (Read [...]
BSDTalk episode 230 is out. It’s 12 minutes of conversation with Burt Kaliski, CTO of Verisign, about the upcoming newest BSD convention, vBSDCon.
Maybe the title of this post doesn’t rhyme, but it does in my head. Michael W. Lucas is looking for people with interesting sudo setups, for his upcoming book.
I’d be really surprised to find this affects anyone, but it’s possible: some kernel options specific to Cyrix processors have been removed, by Sascha Wildner.
Registration is open for vBSDCon, happening in Dulles, Virginia, USA, on October 25th through 27th. There’s some neat-sounding presentations listed. I think that is the same location where I went to a rather spectacular pre-dotcom-crash presentation from Time Warner/Road Runner back in 1999. The hotel was great; the presenters were bef [...]
Phillip Guenther(guenther@) has rolled over time on OpenBSD to 64 bits, avoiding Yet Another Time Apocalypsetm for at least another week. Read more...
If you look at the reports from students this week, they are mostly “I had bugs and I fixed them and there’s not much to do other than test”, which is the sign of well-planned projects. Here’s the status reports: Daniel Flores: HAMMER2 compression feature Larisa Grigore: System V IPC in userspace Pawel Dziepak: Make vkern [...]
If you missed Michael W. Lucas’s talk about DNSSEC, it’s recorded and available on Youtube. Or buy his book.
