Markus Schatzl happened to (re)post a link to a DragonFly installation guide he wrote that includes mention of the Smart Bootmanager, which can allow booting from the DragonFly install CD even on systems that don’t allow for CD booting.Â I may have posted this before, but it’s worth repeating.
The BSDStats.org statistics script is now in DragonFly. It’s not enabled by default; the following two lines in
/etc/periodic.conf are needed to activate it.
A wierd bug in bmake, pkgsrc (and NetBSD’s) version of make, would occasionally make it difficult to kill a make process with a Ctrl-C.Â Matthew Dillon found the bug, a fix for it, and a suggested fix for NetBSD, too.
There’s a new version (4.0) of the BSDStats program out.Â Hubert Feyrer has recently suggested some changes on his blog, which should make it into the next version.Â Those changes may or may not apply to DragonFly, since there’s several elements of DragonFly that originated with NetBSD.
The latest quarterly release of pkgsrc is out, and here’s the announcement.Â Start your somewhat difficult upgrade process now!
Sometimes, people can just read things wrong.Â However, hilarity ensues.
