Mitja Horvat purchased an Intel D945GCLF motherboard, which worked fine with DragonFly except for some minor issues with hardware checksumming on the Realtek 8102EL network card.Â Â He supplied a patch to fix this, which was committed.Â Edward O’Callaghan chimed in with some history of why this particular card was problematic in DragonFly and other operating systems.
Somehow I missed this commit, but DragonFly 2.0.1 is out, with many changes to Hammer and other miscellaneous updates.
This week’s BSDTalk is a 24-minute talk with Chess Griffin, who put together the 100-podcast LinuxReality series.
pkgbox.dragonflybsd.org has been upgraded to DragonFly 2.1, and now has several Hammer volumes.Â This is the system that builds and hosts the pkgsrc binary packages.
The 2.0.1 release of DragonFly will arrive soon, incorporating recent improvements to Hammer, including the new cleanup utility.
Supplied by Alexander Schrijver: the happiest dragonfly ever.
As a followup to his pkgsrc bulk build, Hasso Tepper would welcome contributions from anyone interested in making pkgsrc’s version of the GNOME desktop and the various C# utilities work better on DragonFly.
Hasso Tepper completed a bulk build of pkgsrc (current) on DragonFly 2.1 – about 7/8th of all the packages built.

The freeze on pkgsrc development for the next quarterly release has been announced; expect the 2008Q3 branch in about 2 weeks.
