Somewhat short this week, but there’s several releases.
This week’s BSD Now is 50% OpenBSD, 50% FreeBSD, plus a whole lot of Beastie Bits.
6.0.1 is tagged and available. The major reason for this update is an expired Let’s Encrypt certificate that would cause problems when downloading dpkg binaries. A list of 6.0.1 commits is available.
I recommend the usual rebuild process mentioned on the 6.0 release notes:
Don’t forget to update your packages with ‘pkg upgrade’.
It’s not on their web page but it’s on Jitsi, so you can join now. (alerted via)
I managed to miss it last week, but last week’s BSD Now talks about NetFlix’s usage of FreeBSD to serve a ridiculous amount of data, among other things.
UNIX history for the mini-theme this week.
Your unrelated animation of the week: Cyriak Animator Pro.
It is status report season!
If you have encountered that problem with Let’s Encrypt and dports, the fix is committed and a make world is needed.
If libvirt running with nvmm on DragonFly interests you, watch this bug report.
This is a good week for variety.
Why yes I am trying to clear out my backlog of Solène links.
You may get some errors because of an expiring base Let’s Encrypt certificate when using pkg. It’s being worked on.
The not-official-but-still-used mirror-eu-1.dragonflybsd.org mirror is going away later next month. The main site probably has enough bandwidth to compensate.
Not huge news about mandoc, but I always like linking to updates with clear changelists.
SEMIBUG’s lightning talks event is tonight. No, wait, it’s tomorrow. It’s online with Jitsi so you can see it no matter what – possibly even on BSD?
Classic games as a mini-theme.
I forgot to link to BSD Now 421: ZFS eats CPU on Thursday!
