“BSD Schooling” is the name of this week’s episode of BSDNow, and as you might guess from the title, Brian Callahan is the interview subject, talking about BSDs and education. It also points out interviews elsewhere, like Brian Acton of WhatsApp talking about how useful BSD is to work with, and another one where the CTO of HP appears to have the wrong idea of licensing. (also, an interesting but not surprising Stallman quote)
There’s lots to read through this week – just for BSD! I’ll have even more tomorrow.

BSDNow 109 is up at the Jupiter Broadcasting site, though not yet at the bsdnow.tv domain. This week’s interview is with Warner Losh, which is where the ‘imp’ reference comes from.
BSDTalk 255 is out, and it’s a brief episode – 6 minutes. No interview, but talk about recent events.
I managed to be on the road and so did not post about the milestone 100th episode of BSDNow, which has an interview with Sebastian Wiedenroth about both pkg and pkgSrcCon, along with all their other news.
I’m glad to see 100 episodes together of a video podcast for BSD; if you had asked me a few years ago if that was possible, I’d have dismissed the idea. Not for lack of news, obviously, but because I didn’t think anyone would have that level of dedication. Investing time and care is what sets people apart, and they’ve done it.
The 99th episode of BSDNow is about Gnome on FreeBSD, with interviews of Baptiste Daroussin and Ryan Lortie, plus more news that I was already planning to link to.
BSDNow 098 is up with the normal collection of news and links, plus an interview with David Meyer of Xinous – which I infer is using FreeBSD to underpin their main project. I always find the decision/planning around major commercial open source interesting, cause the open source aspect changes the game, so to speak.
I’ll quote right from the summary for the 14-minute-long BSDTalk 254: “An interview with Ken Worster who is presenting on topics which include PFSense and FreeNAS in schools at the Technology Teacher ME conference in Bethel Maine.”
I always try to guess the interview topic from the episode title, but I wasn’t able to predict the several mini-interviews in this week’s BSDNow episode.
This week’s BSDNow episode talks with Jed Reynolds about ZFS on Linux and FreeBSD, and includes other news bits including about DragonFly’s swap encryption, OpenBSD defaulting to having openntpd on by default, and plenty more.
This week’s BSDNow episode talks with Mike Larkin about memory protection in OpenBSD, along with the normal news summary.
BSDNow 088 has an interview of Ed Schouten about FreeBSD, and all the normal roundups. Also “DragonFlyBSD has officially won the race to get an Intel Broadwell graphics driver”.
Maybe I need to start doing In Other BSDs posts on Wednesdays, cause BSDNow often has the links I’m already saving for the weekend.
BSDNow 087 has an interview with Christos Zoulas, about NetBSD and blacklistd, along with the usual collection of news stories that I’m trying not to peek at because I’m behind on my usual reading and I want to get my own collection together for Saturday’s In Other BSDs.
BSDNow 086, just out, has the usual roundup of news, plus an interview with Antoine Jacoutot about OpenBSD and BSD in business environments.
This week’s BSDNow talks with Baptiste Daroussin about developing and using pkg, for ports and for packaging the base FreeBSD system. (Baptiste has been seen on #dragonflybsd, since pkg is on DragonFly, so I’m sure there’s some relevant bits there, too.) There’s also the usual news summary.
If you’re part of a BSD user group, please let me know your schedule. I’m able to catch NYCBUG announcements cause I’m on their announce@ mailing list – but I could use more.
- DiscoverBSD for 2015/03/30.
- Lumina 0.8.3 is released.
- Building PC-BSD Utilities From Source. (video)
- BSD Magazine for March.
- Directly building FreeBSD AMI images.
- FreeBSD daily status reports, a little more human-readable.
- 4 new commands in FreeBSD DDB.
- The FreeBSD boot loader can now take your GELI passphrase.
- A probably definitive answer on OpenBSD and clang.
- pf tables mean no reloading.
- BSD contributor Paul Schenkveld has died.
- If you are in the UK, there’s a mini OpenBSD ports hackathon happening now.
- NetBSD systems can now resize / on reboot, if space is available.
- LibreSSL in pkgsrc, soon.
- NYCBUG’s next meeting is April 8th, with Christos Zoulas presenting blacklistd.
BSDNow 082 is up, talking with Bernard Spil about LibreSSL adoption in FreeBSD ports. There’s lots of other material listed – see the BSDTalk page for a summary of all the topics covered.
The newest BSDNow video goes into PC-BSD and booting, and interviews Justin Gibbs about the FreeBSD Foundation.
The 77th episode of BSDNow is up, with a tutorial on making a patch in OpenBSD, an interview of Alex Reece and Matt Ahrens about OpenZFS, and the usual news roundup.
BSDNow 075 has an interview with Ed Maste about what the FreeBSD Foundation has been up to, and I’m guessing from the “Part 1” in the title there’s going to be more information in a subsequent show. There’s also a roundup of various BSD news items — more than usual, I think.
There’s two important numbers in this new, nearly-an-hour-long BSDTalk: Half a
million billion, which are the number of people using FreeBSD via WhatsApp, and 250, which is the number of BSDTalk episodes so far. That’s a great milestone for BSDTalk. Oh, and the recording is from MeetBSD 2014, with Rick Reed talking.
Episode 74 of BSDNow is up, with some interesting stories of Linux users switching to BSD, and an interview of Andrew Tanenbaum of MINIX fame.
I managed to miss this last week because of issues with my RSS feeds, but the 71st episode of BSDNow is/has been up. It’s “systemd isaster”, cause the interview is with Ian Sutton talking about BSD replacements for systemd dependencies. There’s a number of at-least-slightly DragonFly-related things in there, including OPNSense, pkgng, and Hammer mentions.
The BSDNow people aren’t slowing down for the holidays, as there’s another episode this week. The interview is with Dan Langille, about the 2015 BSDCan conference. He’s also the person behind freebsddiary.org, which served as partial inspiration for the Digest. There’s also more video presentation links, news items, and so on.
BSDNow isn’t slowing down for Christmas, cause there’s a new episode up. There’s two interviews this time – Erwin Lansing, about BSD in Europe, and Cristina Vintila, about BSD conferences. The rest of the episode is a bunch of “How did you get into BSD?” stories from viewers, both in text (i.e. read out from email) and the occasional video answer.
BSDTalk 249 is an 11 minute interview with Scott Long, who is involved with Netflix’s FreeBSD-based local caching appliances. This conversation is from MeetBSD 2014, though I heard Scott talk about the same subject at the last NYCBSDCon – it’s an astounding amount of data flowing through those machines.
BSDNow’s episode this week focuses on the just-released Bitrig 1.0, and has an interview with Patrick Wildt of that project. There’s also coverage of other topics, including the new poudriere release – that’s the tool that bulk builds packages for DragonFly and FreeBSD, though I don’t know if it’s unified across both operating systems yet.
The 66th BSDNow episode has an interview with Paul Schenkeveld about BSD conferences, and of course the usual variety of news, including something about a BSD-powered library in Africa; something that is entirely out of the blue to me.
This week’s BSDNow episode, 8,000,000 Mogofoo-ops, includes an interview with Brendan Gregg of Netflix, along with more recent convention video links. It also mentions GNOME3 working on FreeBSD – it’s working on DragonFly too.
BSDNow 064 (somehow, 64 seems a nicer milestone than 50) links to a huge pile of EuroBSDCon 2014 videos, including 2 DragonFly presentations. There’s also an interview with Justin Cormack, who must be cool; I can tell from his name. There’s a lot more material just written on the page after the video, so I’ll point you at the actual content instead of repeating.
BSDNow 063 has the normal news articles and links, and an interview of Kristaps Džonsons, one of the people working on mandoc. There’s also a tutorial on bandwidth throttling with pf.
BSDNow 062 has an interview of Pawel Jakub Dawidek, and he talks about the Sun Microsystems-originated technologies found in FreeBSD. You figured that out already from the title, didn’t you?
BSDTalk 246 is available, and has 19 minutes of conversation about TOR, though I haven’t heard it yet to be sure.
BSDNow episode 060 bypasses the pun and just commands you to obey. At least, I don’t know the reference if there is one. Anyway, there’s an interview of Olivier Cochard-Labbé of the BSD Router Project, along with the usual array of news.
Because I missed last week, there’s two BSDNow episodes to catch (assuming you are using me as notification for new ones.) Episode 58, Behind the Masq, has an interview with Matt Ranney and George Kolaand, and a tutorial that includes DNSMasq, for the title source. Episode 59, the title of which I can’t reprint accurately, has an interview with Hiroki Sato and the usual number of articles.
- FreeBSD 10.1 beta 3 is out – though it may be superseded by the time this article is published.
- pkg is apparently supported in Salt and cdist. (via)
- DiscoverBSD’s September BSD release list.
- DiscoverBSD’s news roundup for 2014/09/29.
- The September BSD Magazine is out. (via)
- Undeadly has links to (all?) the EuroBSDCon 2014 OpenBSD papers.
- OpenBSD 5.6 is available for pre-order, and at a new store.
- Can’t tell if this is a joke or just dumb. No, it’s not a real problem.
- Here’s an OpenBSD conversation about routing table changes and flaky ISPs, though much of it could apply to any BSD.
- I daresay this counts as Shellshock fallout.
- pkgsrc-2014Q3 is out and announced.
- No more cvsup for FreeBSD.
I normally post these on Thursday night, but I didn’t see it in my RSS feed. I think this one feed is behind. In any case, Episode 056 is a lengthy interview with Peter Wemm about the FreeBSD project infrastructure. Allan and Kris are at EuroBSDCon, so I expect there will be some European BSD people getting interviewed in upcoming episodes.
BSDNow 055 has the normal news items, and an interview with Adrian Chadd, who has dome a lot of work on FreeBSD network device drivers (and some coordination with DragonFly, too, thank you Adrian), plus a lengthy news roundup.
BSDNow 054 has an interview with Ken Moore of PC-BSD about the just-released-as-a-port Lumina desktop environment, along with a slew of news items and a Lumina walkthrough.
Not the first time that pun has been deployed, of course, but: BSDNow 053 has a Hammer tutorial, along with an interview of Reyk Floeter about OpenBSD’s httpd, along with the usual recent news and some links to some things I haven’t seen, like pfSense tricks.
It’s not about taxes, but reverse SSH tunnels. Episode 052 is also an interview with Shawn Webb about ASLR in FreeBSD, along with the normal commentary and news.
They also catch BIND’s removal in FreeBSD and OpenBSD, but not in DragonFly, which I just realized I should have linked before.
BSDNow has reached the milestone of 50 episodes, and this week’s show has VPN setup as a tutorial, Robert Watson interviewed, and of course more discussion on most every flavor.
As you can probably guess somewhat from the title, BSDNow 048 has an interview about LibreSSL, with Brent Cook. There’s also the normal news roundup, and other recent events.
It’s all multimedia day here, as BSDTalk 243 is also out with 16 minutes of conversation with Ingo Schwarze about mandoc. Mandoc is the man replacement in OpenBSD and built-but-not-yet-used in DragonFly. ‘man replacement’ is probably an oversimplification.
BSDNow 046 interviews Brian Drewery, talks about tunneling through DNS ports (an useful trick to get around network paywalls, if it’s what I think it is), and of course more general discussion of BSD topics.
The 44th BSDNow episode is out, with an interview of Craig Rodrigues, a tutorial on creating pre-patched OpenBSD ISOs, and the usual discussion of news items, including DragonFly’s recent pf changes.
(I don’t get the pun in the title this time, darnit.)
BSDNow 043 talks with Marc Espie of OpenBSD about packaging, goes through updating your BSD system (all of them? I haven’t watched yet), and discusses a number of other links.
BSDNow’s 42nd video is up, with an interview of Bryce Chidester and a tutorial on chaining SSH connections.
BSDNow 041 is out with an interview of Benedict Reuschling, along with a lot of news discussion and some interesting NAS notes. Hey, I’m mentioned!
BSDTalk 242 has 17 minutes of conversation with Chris Buechler (of pfSense fame), recorded at BSDCan 2014.
BSDNow episode 039 is up, with an interview of Jon Anderson about capsicum and casperd, a tutorial about encrypting DNS traffic, and a slew of other links including ones to the recent BSDCan event presentations.
The May BSD Magazine is out, and Siju George has written an article about using Hammer on DragonFly. It’s a free download to read.
I missed this last week: BSDNow episode 36 is out with an interview of David Chisnall of FreeBSD, plus a RAID tutorial, and other stuff as always.
BSDTalk 240 is 35 minutes with George Neville-Neil talking about NTP and the precision time protocol.
BSDNow 034 is about Network Attached Storage – specifically with an interview of John Hixson at iXSystems about FreeNAS development.
The March issue of BSD Magazine is out, and this month has an article written by Siju George about how his company is using DragonFly and Hammer for backups.
I should have seen that pun coming a long time ago. BSDNow 032 is up with an interview of Dru Lavigne and the usual assortment of other recent BSD items.
