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.

- 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.

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.
BSDTalk 239 is 55 minutes of talk with Baptiste Daroussin at vBSDCon 2013 about ‘pkgng’ on FreeBSD. The BSDTalk post doesn’t mention it, but it is the same pkg tool that DragonFly uses, so Baptiste’s plans are relevant to DragonFly too. (I haven’t had a chance to listen to the podcast yet so I don’t know how much he talks about DragonFly, specifically.)
BSDNow episode 030 is out with an interview of Warren Block about FreeBSD documentation, along with a conversation on a number of other topics, including setting up a BSD machine as your access point (highly recommended, along with home router setup) and setting up a BSD (FreeNAS) as a Synology replacement. They also totally scooped me on Michael W. Lucas giving an OpenBSD talk – which might be because I forgot to sign up for his announcement mailing list.
BSDNow episode 029 is up containing a full slate of material. There’s an interview of Gleb Kurtsou, along with a PEFS tutorial and several other items that are new to me.
Uh oh, I don’t get the pun this time. Anyway, the newest BSDNow episode is an interview with Eric Turgeon of GhostBSD,
and a disk concatenation tutorial for NetBSD and a tutorial that isn’t uploaded yet. (Wait, now I get it.)
I am late posting this: the most recent episode of BSDNow has, along with the regular array of items, an interview of Chris Buechler, of the commercial support company behind pfSense.
For BSDTalk 238, Will Backman has recordings from NYCBSDCon 2014. I think I’m in there, even though I haven’t listened to it yet.
Episode 023 of BSDNow is up, with an interview of Ted Unangst about the new signing mechanism in OpenBSD, a NTP server tutorial, and of course more.
