In Other BSDs for 2017/02/25

I measure the success of In Other BSDs by how many different BSD flavors I can reference.  This is a good week.

Lots of storage this week.

 

BSDNow 181: The Cantrillogy

This week’s BSDNow has notes about the FOSDEM BSD Devroom, and a triple-shot of Brian Cantrill – all three interviews with him.  If you’ve been watching BSDNow for a very long time, you may have seen one or several of them, but this is one long replay of all the interviews of an opinionated and lively speaker.  (The first interview’s original episode is titled “Ubuntu Slaughters Kittens” for a reason.)

Near-term dports work

Rimvydas Jasinskas posted an extended description of what’s happening with dports.  There’s a significant xorg reformatting coming in ports, which is going to be absorbed into dports, but it may take some time.  There’s also an odd loss of commit rights for John Marino, who commits (frequently!) to both DragonFly and FreeBSD.  (His followup)  This all translates to some upcoming transition time for dports to accommodate these changes.

Note that if you are using dports binaries, especially on DragonFly 4.6 release, this won’t really affect you; the way dports is set up, binary sets always work.  It is interesting to hear about future work, in any case.

A lot of the real content this week is buried in the comments, strangely.

Note the end this week of pc98, the most focused of niche platforms.
