Thanks to Rimvydas Jasinskas, it's possible to 'make NOSHARED=yes buildworld' and build a complete DragonFly world without shared libraries.
If you're booting DragonFly in UEFI mode, and you have unsupported video (i.e. NVIDIA), there's the scfb driver for xorg.  It doesn't support NVIDIA chipsets either, but it gives more options than the generic vesa driver.  It appears to be present in all the BSDs to some extent.
Roguelike/UNIX theme this week. Your off-topic music link of the week: A Walk Through Buckethead’s Massive Bandcamp Catalogue.
One month to Christmas!
If you are like me and have a long weekend, dig into /usr/share/examples.  Not all of it is necessarily up to date, but there's examples there on running rconfig, diskless, different pf and ipfw examples, and so on.  Actual documentation is in corresponding man pages - and there's examples on how to write them, too.
I just wasted an hour trying to figure out why xorg had strange output but no errors on this laptop, and it's because I had i915_load="YES" in /boot/loader.conf instead of i915_load="YES" in /etc/rc.conf.  I'm almost nearly sure I've mentioned that before, but if not: here you go. (though if you never plan to run X, you can put it in loader.conf and everything will just work.) (Title updated for a more correct sentence)
Allan Jude went to Taiwan for BSDTW, so there's a nice con report as part of this week's BSDNow, along with the usual news summary.
If you happen to be running an old version of DragonFly, you may need to do an intermediate upgrade to move to releases after 5.0.  This is in part because of commits to support C++14.  This only applies to version of DragonFly before 4.4.
No theme this week.
I'm a bit late linking to the new BSDNow episode, "Opening ZFS in 2017", but here it is.  You can guess at least one of the topics covered from the title.
Do you have a terabyte or more of RAM?  You can boot DragonFly.  In theory over 32 terabytes will require changes - but oh, to have such problems...
Noted from this commit: if you are routing over IPv6 directly to another address, the sysctl net.inet6.icmp6.nd6_onlink_ns_rfc4861 must be set to 1.
This is one of the more historical episodes of Lazy Reading.
