Martin Hellwig created another DragonFly logo idea with some symbolism.
If you can read this, it means shiningsilence.com has now moved from FreeBSD 4.10-STABLE on a dual P2/333, to a single 1.8G AMD64 running on DragonFly stable.
shiningsilence.com is moving to newer hardware, which means a change in IP and probably a short adjustment time as DNS updates come through. So, this site and mail will be unavailable for a little while, perhaps as soon as tonight.
Are you a geek? If so, then you’ll find this patent funny.
(Found while researching/comparing compression results at work)
Robert Nagy submitted patches to include ‘
sudo‘in the base system for DragonFly. Reaction is generally positive. The reason I’m posting this is to point out that there are no criterion for what can be in the base system – what would you like to see?
GoBSD.com has the second preview release of GoBSD. GoBSD, for those who don’t know, is built from DragonFly and includes pkgsrc for software management.
ONLamp/BSD has posted the January BSD news roundup from Sam Smith.
If you’ve been feeling an urge to submit patches to DragonFly, and don’t know when to start, Max Okumoto did a small writeup on how to get started (with followup).
Note that submitting documentation improvements is as simple as rewriting something and posting it on submit@, though it’s more helpful to download docs from CVS and patch.
Joerg Sonneberger has added ALTQ support from KAME, and removed PC98 support, though that probably affects noone.
Xin LI announced a new DragonFly mirror in China: dragonflybsd.delphij.net, carrying CVSup collections and updated 4 times a day.
I’ve updated the Handbook, and there’s a new PDF version, too, thanks to Matthew Dillon updating the leaf doc tools.
Apparently the parts to the BSD Installer are showing up in pkgsrc. (Thanks, Todd Willey.)
Sascha Wildner has imported the Handbook into the DragonFly Wiki. Neat, though I’m not sure how easily the changes can get placed back into CVS.
YONETANI Tomokazu posted some comments on how to get the FreeBSD Port of linuxpluginwrapper working.
Simon ‘corecode’ Schubert has created a cross reference tool (details) that compares across DragonFly, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD, syncing by tag when possible. A test version is available.
Simon ‘corecode’ Schubert posted a lengthy writeup of his thoughts on fixing
Unixreview.com has, among other things, a review of “C++ Coding Standards”, and a review of “The Mathematical Century” (for those who like reading about math problems). It is a nerdfest!
Would graphs like this help people working on DragonFly? If you would be helped, speak up. “ALiene” recommended creating them.
David Rhodus announced that there’s now a pkgsrc mailing list hosted at gobsd.com.
In addition, there are now binary pkgsrc packages available for DragonFly at gobsd.com!
