    Off topic, but I’m just curious: are the google ads on the blog pay-per-view or pay-per-click? I’ve been reading via google reader lately and feeling bad that I might be depriving you of revenue.

    Java Status should be notified, i think.

    I would love to see better Intel SATA support (ICH7, ICH7M, ICH8)

    Read in the way that you like best – it’s more important that it gets read and discussed than whether any income is derived from it.

    I just stole your leaf.dragonflybsd.org/~justin/new-bsdusers/article.html
    look at
    Does it need any changes for 1.8.1? I do not think so, but please check.

    M.K. – the NATA kernel modifications are there, but not yet turned on. Enabling NATA would get you the disk support you want, I think – there should be a section on the wiki that talks about enabling NATA until it reaches release status.

  7. Y.K. says:

    Looking at CVSWeb ( dragonflybsd.org/cvsweb/src/libexec/rtld-elf/rtld.c ), we can see that the DragonFly_RELEASE_1_8 tag is for rev 1.26. Doesn’t that mean the rtld fixes (rev 1.27) aren’t currently included in 1.8.1?

    Y.K. – Corecode added in the rtld fix to 1.8 just after you asked.
