Even the U.S. holiday doesn’t stop the regular posting of BSDNow episodes. #169 is up now. I like the Let’s Encrypt vs. the FreeBSD cluster story, cause that’s an interesting and intricate problem.
A much more well-rounded crop of BSD links this week.
- FreeBSD status report for 2016Q3.
- “Import (finally!) Tor Browser 6.0.5.” An obvious matchup. (via)
- “FreeBSD Flavors. Do We Need Them?“
- Next SemiBUG meeting: December 20th.
- “How to remote connect to BSD server behind double NAT?”
- Review of NAS4Free 10.3.0.3. I forgot about this… fork? (via)
- pycapsicum – sandbox your Python code on FreeBSD. (via)
- Iocage – A FreeBSD jail manager. (via)
- “What’s your favorite BSD jail administration software?“
- Build a FreeBSD 11.0-release Openstack Image with bsd-cloudinit. (via)
- OPNsense 16.7.8 released.
- b2k16 hackathon report: Landry Breuil, Jeremy Evans, Daniel Jakots.
- l2k16 hackathon report: LibreSSL manuals now in mdoc(7).
- openbsd changes of note
- Learning more about the NetBSD scheduler (… than I wanted to know)
- MeetBSD 2016 Report: Michael Dexter.
This week’s BSDNow episode is almost all FreeBSD, all the time. No interview subject this week. I’m going by the written summary because the video is showing as private… but maybe I’m catching it just before posting?
Started out with a short list, but I managed to find some extra links by Friday.
- b2k16 hackathon report: Antoine Jacoutot.
- NetBSD 7.0/xen scheduling mystery, and how to fix it with processor sets.
- Looking at the scheduler issue again. Part 2 from previous link.
- TrueOS Launch message. Might be time to retire the PC-BSD tag.
- Lynis – Security auditing tool for Linux, macOS, and UNIX-based systems. (via)
- Exit from Hell? Reducing the Impact of Amplification DDoS Attacks. Also as a paper. I’d like to compare the number of systems found as amplifiers vs. systems in general. e.g. are BSD less likely to create reflectors? (via)
- “PAM is Un-American” talk now online. Buy the PAM Mastery book!
- Devops with Chef on FreeBSD, an online course from BSD Magazine.
- SemiBUG is meeting Tuesday. Joe Gidi will talk about ‘managing Android devices with BSD‘.
Imre Vadasz is working on full-offload scan support for wlan, imported from FreeBSD. That doesn’t change much from a user point of view, other that (I assume) reducing load and power usage a tiny amount. I’m reinforcing something most people don’t think about: there’s tiny computers inside your computer with their own firmware and processors, that you don’t directly control.
Several pfSense links this week, which by complete coincidence is the same week that I’ve been adding network cards to my older pfSense devices at work to create radio links.
- 24/7 support plans for pfSense.
- Vendor in NYC with pfSense xg-2758 in stock
- Converting Pix 6.3 to pfsense – stuck on some rules

- mksh on FreeBSD – custom PS1 help?
- zfs-snap-diff: compare / restore files from zfs snapshots. (via)
- A very valuable vulnerability. Discovered by a BSD-based company.
- One More Week Until MeetBSD California 2016!
- A char device which implements an Enigma machine (FreeBSD & Linux) (via)
- garbage episode 39, Provenance. Might not have any BSD content? I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet.
BSDNow 166: pot jokes! No interview, but lots of topics.
Reminder: Isaac (.ike) Levy’s “Infrastructure in a Post-Cloud Era” presentation is tonight, at NYCBUG’s November meeting. Go, see.
I get all the BSDs this week.
- Infrastructure in a Post-Cloud Era. .ike presenting at NYCBUG on November 2nd. Go if you are near, vote if you can.

Oddball links for BSD this week – but pay attention to the first one.
- Get a BSD person into ARIN. Useful.

- Announcing the pkgsrc-2016Q3 release.
- Vincent Delft’s site. Lots of OpenBSD notes.
