The ports/x11/nvidia-driver port currently stops during build with an error about vnode_if.h. This is being worked on.

VFS 4th stage

Matthew Dillon’s 4th VFS patch probably will go in today. ‘esmith’ asked why nullfs was so broken on FreeBSD, and how it was better on DragonFly, to which Matthew Dillon posted this reply, which happens to include some details of his next major task.

Update: commited, with further explanation of what changed.

Want trouble?

Matthew Dillon has a third VFS patch up; he’s looking for anyone using UFS under heavy load, or other filesystems. This is dangerous, as he expects there to be crashing with this patch.

Hardware just laying around

If you happen to live in Holland with some spare NVIDIA cards, SMP motherboards, or hard drives, or you live anywhere in the US with a spare laptop that could run DragonFly, then you should be looking at the Donations page.
