Jeroen Ruigrok/asmodai has created pages on the wiki for Chinese, Japanese, Dutch, and Norwegian translations of the FAQ. If you are familiar with these languages, please help. The Norwegian and Dutch FAQs are already partially translated.
Are you using the most recent DragonFly code from CVS? Matthew Dillon warns that the new red/black tree work may be causing file system problems. If this worries you, you should be running with a less dangerous tag in your cvsup file. (See his post for details.)
A new French translation of the FAQ is up on the wiki.
Adrian Nida has put together a nice HOWTO for pkgsrc on the wiki.
I’ve added the Adobe Illustrator and (encapsulated) PostScript versions of the official DragonFly logo to the wiki. The art is originally by Joe Angerson.
Jonas Sundstrom pointed at a open source NVIDIA driver that supports 3D, and currently runs on BeOS. Could it work under X? Maybe, with a pile of work.
Emiel Kollof warns that the newest binary driver from NVIDIA is now FreeBSD-5 specific, and so does not yet work on DragonFly. If you’ve got a working driver now, don’t upgrade.
If you’re going to USENIX this week, tell Matthew Dillon. If time permits, he’ll be setting up a DragonFly BoF session, in addition to presenting a paper in Kirk McKusick’s session.
NetBSD’s first quarter report is out. Some of it’s already been linked here.
Matthew Dillon warned that a number of new, destabilizing technologies are going to be entering the bleeding edge DragonFly code, otherwise known as HEAD. Unless you enjoy trouble, the PREVIEW-tagged code (formerly known as STABLE) is a better target.
Correct tags to use in your CVSup files are named on the Download page.
If you’ve got lots of bandwidth and you’d like to provide a mirror for the upcoming release, contact Matthew Dillon.
