Still plenty of links I haven’t even got to yet.
This week’s BSD Now thankfully skips the pun that might go with the episode number, and talks about various OpenBSD and NetBSD articles.
Classic Lazy Reading weirdness.
Your unrelated music link for the week: The Bug – Skeng. I’ve heard this a million times, but never the whole thing until now.
I am severely backlogged on links.
This week’s BSD Now is the usual roundup of news, with the headline taken from an article about FreeBSD’s new/experimental web-based installer. (What, no mention of the installer for DragonFly? It’s been web-compatible for years…) Digs aside, the BSD install experience could be different.
The recent tmux package update reminds me to mention ‘pkg lock’. When you update packages, pkg will update everything. If there’s a package you don’t want changed, the pkg lock(8) command will keep it at the current version. There can be some other packages held back because of dependencies, but that’s OK. Don’t forget to pkg unlock when no longer needed…
NYCBUG’s hosting “Extreme scripting with KSH and AWK” with G Clifford Williams, tomorrow. It’s online, so everyone can get the lesson.
If you want to update to the now fixed tmux port, you’ll want to add a -f to the pkg command to force it; the version number hasn’t changed.
There’s a toy/game mini-theme this week.
Note the last link; BSD and M1.
No allusions or puns in this week’s BSD Now title, for sure. It’s all Michael W. Lucas interviewing, so sure to be a good time.
If you’re upgrading to the latest dports, and you use tmux – don’t update that particular port yet.
tuxillo has built a new set of packages for dports; upgrade using the instructions in his post. (Though ‘pkg upgrade’ has generally worked for me as the quickest solution.)
It’s a very quiet week here but there’s still a BSD Now episode. It’s covering a bunch of topics, but the title makes me think: all the BSDs have VM hosting solutions now.
A BSD followup: today’s SEMIBUG presentation from Peter Hansteen is at this Jitsi link, in about 5 hours from this post.
I have some barely-BSD links this week but I don’t think you’ll mind.
It’s been a very quiet week, so here’s a link to BSD Now’s netcat printing episode. There’s some variety in the Beastie Bits, too.
