Simon ‘corecode’ Schubert’s crosscheck now has a search engine for commit messages.
Simon ‘corecode’ Schubert’s “crosscheck” site is now available (again). It contains up-to-date source code for multiple BSD operating systems, to allow for easy comparison.
Due to a DNS change, shiningsilence.com was down for a while last night. Sorry about the lack of news!
Speaking of outages, this system will be down during the day on Monday, the 11th, because of an electrical system upgrade.
While it would be nigh-impossible to use DragonFly’s journaling implemenation within Linux or another BSD, it would be possible to have other operating systems able to receive the journaled data.
For those readers who didn’t read the original description of journaling, this is different than the usual “fast reboot” version of journaling that other operating systems have. This scheme is intended to allow for rollback to arbitrary spots in disk history, or mirroring of data to other drives or other network locations.
If you’re having trouble with a Serial ATA controller, try setting it in BIOS to “compatibility mode”. This problem has hit a few people.
DragonFly 1.2 Release has been bumped from 1.2.2 to 1.2.3, probably to catch up on any recent changes brought in from development.
Most third-party software work for DragonFly seems to be happening with pkgsrc these days, but Andreas Hauser is still building packages for DragonFly using the FreeBSD ports system. Pick one of the libc.so.4 directories if you’re running 1.2, or libc.so.5 if you’re on the bleeding edge of DragonFly development.
