Lots of material this week.
Remembered to do this all at the last minute, after I got the new server up.
I sort of lost a day this week because of an accidental 20-hour workday, but I still have the links:
Note: corrected VPS hosting link.
Get ready for some reading.
I have been building up quite the variety this week.
- Bitrig 1.0 has been released.
- Writing NetBSD Sound Drivers in Haskell. (PDF, via)
- ruBSD 2014, happening December 13th in Moscow. (via)
- How to configure full disk encryption in PC-BSD 10.1. (via)
- BSD Magazine for November 2014. (via) Why don’t they put new issue announcements in their RSS?
- A week of pkgsrc #5.
- FreeBSD Foundation’s 2014 year-end fundraising.
- FreeBSD Mastery: Storage Essentials is hitting the printers. There’s a quiet mention of the next two books in that series, too.
- Two new kernel errata for OpenBSD.
- BSDCan 2015 (June 2015) has opened up its call for papers, now through Jan 19th, 2015. (via)
- A conversation about UTF-8, Unicode, and file systems.
- A conversation about random vs. phrase passwords.
- New Directions in Operating Systems conference notes. Lots of BSD stuff in there. (via)
- nih-0.13.0 is out for pkgsrc.
- BSD presentations (including DragonFly) at the X Developers Conference. I mentioned the event itself before, but that link wasn’t open to non-subscribers until later, as pointed out to me.
- Coreboot on the BSDs.
- More talk about embedded OpenBSD on cheap machines, including thin client machines repurposed into routers.
- Noticed in that previous link: <$100 Ubuquiti EdgeRouter-Lites can run OpenBSD? FreeBSD too, apparently.
- Is it time to give BSDs a try?
- Fixing PC-BSD upgrade issues.
Despite the US holiday, here’s a pile of BSD material.
There’s a few more days of freeze for the pkgsrc-2014Q3 release of pkgsrc. Normally I’d save this for the weekend In Other BSDs, but that’d be too late.
Low on the source links this week, but there’s plenty else.
Update: from talk@nycbug, George Rosamond gives a nice APU setup summary.
This has been a very hectic week for me, but I still have links for you.
Why is it so warm out? I want autumn to start.
I went from 1 link to lots all in one night.
Another long list. These are making my Friday nights take some extra effort.
I was thinking this was going to be a short week, but nope.
Finally, a much more eventful week. I already noted LibreSSL’s release.
Another ‘quiet’ week – lots of commit activity in the other BSDs, but not a lot to point at directly.
I have a backlog from stuff I missed last week while traveling, so we all benefit!
Some leftovers from last week since I’m catching up, so get ready to read.
