Shell access for developers is now available for developers via SSH.

Also, a number of folks have reported success running DragonFly BSD under
VMWare, Bochs, and qemu (with modifications).

Following is a list of the shell access requirements from Matt Dillon.

(Quoted directly from Matt Dillon’s post.)

Requirements for getting a shell account:

* You must be at least somewhat active on the DragonFly mailing lists.

* You do NOT need to be a committer.

* EMail me an sshv2 ( DSA ) key and username. sshv1 is not enabled on
this box.

* Only request an account if you need one. If you already have access to
powerful machines you do not need an account.

* The machine is


* Please do not set a password in your account or create ssh private keys
in your account. Use your .ssh/authorized_keys file only. It is
acceptable to use ssh -A from another box into this one in order to
then be able to ssh out of this box to another (i.e. committers: use ssh -A
so you can commit to from this box).

* Note that “/FreeBSD” contains a read-only mostly up-to-date FreeBSD CVS and
source tree, and “/cvs” contains a read-only NFS mount from the main cvs
repository which you can run cvs -R … on.

* Lengthy automated builds should be restricted to the wee-hours of the
morning (1:00am to 7:00am) pacific time. This is a fairly hefty machine
and developers can do manually initiated buildworlds and such. Still,
be nice to your fellow users and do not use make -j N.

* Please do not use this machine for non-dragonfly related work unless
otherwise given permission to by Matt Dillon. Obviously minor little
things here and there are just fine.

* Please do not abuse my limited bandwidth. NO SERVERS MAY BE RUN.

* BACKUP YOUR OWN DATA! This machine is not currently being backed up.
