I'll just say I did this:
cpdup -VV -v /var/hammer/usr/snap-20160928-0301/local/pgsql/data /usr/local/pgsql/
And managed to bring back my last year or so of RSS feeds and the like. Phew!
has sort of 2 interviews this week. has Allan Jude talking about his EuroBSDCon
trip, plus Michael Shirk talking about Bro
on FreeBSD. Also, lots of news items right on the BSDNow page.
If you had trouble getting your laptop's touchpad to work under DragonFly, try again
. (If you are running DragonFly-current)
Mark Sumter's giving a talk on ZFS at tonight's KnoxBUG meeting
. Hurry! I should have posted this sooner but work tied me up today.
It's now possible to build dports using LibreSSL instead of OpenSSL. Set SSL_DEFAULT in make.conf to the appropriate port name
, and start building. Use synth for fastest results, of course.
LibreSSL will eventually become the default library. This is in addition to the previously-mentioned, already-completed in DragonFly 4.7, base system switch
I manage to avoid a topic this week, really. That's good!
It's the convention time of year!
BSDNow 160's title is linked to Allan Jude being at EuroBSDCon
, happening right now. (Groff
is there too!) Episode 160 is available in any case
, and I bet there will be some sort of interview(s) coming out of this.
For those running DragonFly 4.7, there's new firmware
for all iwm(4)
devices. Also, you can get temperature readings off the iwm wireless device
now, if I'm reading this correctly.
Tomohiro Kusumi is thinking about porting it. Follow the whole thread
3D printing on DragonFly with a Fabrikator? Yep, it works
. (from jh32 on EFNet #dragonflybsd)
Partially assembled while I was in some multi-hour conference calls at work.
I've never had as many hackathon links as I did for g2k16 over this week and last.
, happening tomorrow (the 17th) in San Francisco. Normally this would be in Lazy Reading, but that's too late. (via
Matthew Dillon has added powerd
, a utility that will automatically step down processor speed based on reported temperature. The range is configurable, and there's some other nice-to-have features. This will save your CPU from melting, and probably also your thighs from being burned.
This week's BSDNow
has no interview, but some good links, including a meaty one about HTTPS implementation at NetFlix with FreeBSD.
karu.pruun has been trying to get a Macbook's hybrid graphics card to work in DragonFly. He's been working on a gmux driver
, but it needs a framework like Linux's switcheroo
. If this topic interests you, help him out.
Bryan Everly wants to start a BSD User Group in Indianapolis, Indiana, in the US
. If you are anywhere near there and would go (and you should; user groups are great), tell him
Addendum: Near Chicago
works too, as joshua stein pointed out
I may have mentioned this in part before, but Matthew Dillon has a brief script to reload pf when an interface IP changes
. I'm linking it here in case it's useful in the future.
Recent changes for virtual machine support
and the new powerd utility
have been rolled into the release branch for DragonFly. They'll probably be in the next point release, or you can rebuild a release machine now for immediate access.
Also mentioned in the update from Matthew Dillon
, DragonFly-master users should upgrade carefully as DragonFly migrates to using LibreSSL in base, and dports-based LibreSSL in dports.
