Apparently the version of BIND that comes with DragonFly is not built with support for DNSSEC.Â Matt Dillon posted from NYCBSDCon noting that, after hearing Jeremy C. Reed’s “Introduction to DNSSEC” presentation, maybe we should.Â Peter Avalos has a different argument: why bundle BIND at all?
Matthew has a small project for anyone who wants it: automatic creation of slaved pseudo file systems, for mirroring.Â Do this, and you make everyone’s life easier.
Matthew Dillon warns that there is a relatively unlikely chance of a crash with Hammer committing bad data to disk if you ‘continue’ in the debugger.Â Don’t do that, for now; it will be fixed soon.
Did you know there was a “Berlin International Roguelike Development Conference 2008“?Â Me neither, but there’s video to prove it.Â (via)
Today is apparently crazy links day.
I don’t normally link to things like this, but these are useful: Woot! is running a special on a 2-pack of 5-outlet Power Squids.Â (Sorry, non-120v-3-prong European readers; won’t help you much…)Â Today only, like most Woot! specials.
Hasso Tepper brought in a fix from OpenBSD for ssh; apparently empty banners on some types of network equipment would cause a disconnect.Â This isn’t major, but there may just be someone out there reading this for whom knowing about that saves a lot of frustration.
This entry on the OSBR blog links to the recent results of the OpenLogic open source survey.Â It also mentions some “free software for non-free platform” bundles that I hadn’t heard of, like OpenDisc and OSSWin.
Robert Luciani’s EuroBSDCon bachelor’s thesis presentation on DragonFly’s threading model is available as a PDF.Â (anyone have a mirror?Â That link is intermittent.)Â Previous versions have been linked here before.
