mod_php, in pkgsrc, is the package ap-php. If you install the binary version, Apache 1.3 is the dependency it tries to load. This can be a problem if you are alreay running Apache 2.
The ap-php package works with Apache 2 – it has to be built from source, however. Joerg Sonnenberger has more details.
There’s an ongoing debate about this on the pkgsrc tech-pkg list, too.
Matthew Dillon’s posted the first patch for parallelizing the route table. People who don’t mind mangling their network connection are encouraged to give it a try.
Linux ’emulation’ packages are present in pkgsrc, same as they are in ports, but the use is slightly different. Joerg Sonnenberger detailed some of the differences in a recent post.

This is a test, to ensure I didn’t mangle the database connectivity. Ignore me.
OnLAMP.com/BSD has a new Big Scary Daemons article up about emulation – specifically, Linux emulation on FreeBSD. It should mostly apply to DragonFly.
Jeremy C. Reed has been adding to the PF documentation to cover other operating systems, including DragonFly. He needs another set of eyes to look it over, though.
Simon ‘corecode’ Schubert has put together a Roundup issue tracker and has been collecting issues off the bugs@ mailing list for a while. He says it’s about 5 minutes of work daily to keep things straight, which isn’t bad at all for mailing list integration.
Garance Drosihn wrote up a little summary about the oft-revisited subject of: why isn’t there something easier to build than CVSup?
At Daniel Sturm’s suggestion, I’ve put a link for the DragonFly BSD Frappr group over on the side of the page.
There’s been 4 recent security alerts for FreeBSD, for ipfw, cpio, ee, and texindex, all of which could apply to DragonFly since they are in FreeBSD 4.
While we’re on the topic of papers, BSDCan 2006 is happening at the University of Ottowa, May 12-13th, and any proposals for a paper are due January 19th.
Joseph Garcia noticed that the newaliases command is apparently not run as part of a new DragonFly 1.4 install.
The USENIX 06 Technical Conference, held May 30th to June 3rd, has a call for papers out – due by the 17th!
Bob Bagwill posted a link to an “unflattering (but not inaccurate)” review of DragonFly BSD 1.4 over at DistroWatch.
DragonFly 1.4 is out, available for download via HTTP, FTP, or torrent. Be sure to check the errata.
(My post about this was eaten while I set up the server…)
I’ve seen a couple sites using WordPress, lately. Anyone have opinons on it vs. Movable Type?
I’m not worried about cost or license – just utility. And a way to eliminate – not stick in a junk folder – all that comment spam!
I was bit by this myself: the weekly tarball of pkgsrc files, for those who plan to install pkgsrc, appears to be broken. Use CVS (instructions on the aforementioned wiki page) to update the files within it.
Joerg Sonnenberger found a slight problem with linking to gettext, which only can happen when building a pkgsrc package from source; binary users are unaffected. Details and a link to a workaround are in his message.
