I don’t know how recently this recording was made, but Dru Lavigne found a recording of Jeffrey Hsu (longtime DragonFly committer) taking about How To Get Started with Kernel Programming.
The 2.4 release looks to be about a week and a half away; if you’re a committer, please plan to make drastic changes after the release, if possible,
Oh, look – Alex Hornung made Linux emulation work again. Thanks!
There’s some new HP server hardware out there, and Hasso Tepper found some problems (and lists some potential solutions) with installing DragonFly, mostly centered around keyboard handling. It sounds like NetBSD’s keyboard mux may solve it for us, if someone’s willing to add it…
Alex Hornung has posted a summary of what Unix98 pty devices are, and how they are supported under DevFS. If something screwy happens, there’s even a debug option to turn on.
Say hello to the newest DragonFly committer: Alexander Polakov. Hello, Alex!
Want to make Hasso Tepper’s day? He’s posted 4 separate bugs for DragonFly that revolve around pkgsrc packages: sysutils/hal, sysutils/libgtop, audio/pulseaudio, and HTML5 video in FireFox. All of these (except the last) are issues that have been present for a while, and fixing any of them will help a number of other pkgsrc packages work correctly on DragonFly. If the work appeals to you, please dig in.
The September issue of the Open Source Business Resource is out, and Dru Lavigne has a rundown of the articles. People who hear the term “Business Intelligence” do one of two things: look confused, or avidly read up on it.
