The ix(4) driver in DragonFly has been updated to match a new vendor release, and the faith(4)/faithd(4) driver is gone.
BSDNow 223 covers a wide range: debuggers, Rust, Docker, EuroBSDCon 2017, pine64, and some network tools for FreeBSD and OpenBSD.
There’s a NYCBUG get-together tonight at Suspenders in Manhattan, New York City, 7 PM. There’s no technical presentation, but who cares? Start the end-of-year-drinking!
Rimvydas Jasinskas has added the OpenBSD versions of banner(1), boggle(6), and tetris(6), along with additional fortune(6) material.
Odd note: tetris(6) originated with a 1989 International Obfustcated C Code Contest winner, according to the man page, but I can’t find it in the 1989 list.
DragonFly 5.0.2 is released. As you may guess from the version number, this is a bugfix release. The release tag has the full details. Update through the normal process of a buildworld/buildkernel, at your leisure.
Some overflow from last week, thank goodness.

No interview this week for BSDNow 222, but lots of procedure details on FAMP, server moves, and bhyve.
This is not as catastrophic as it may seem. I did not know this, but there’s a utility called dm(8), for Dungeon Master, used to control game access on a BSD system. It’s now gone on DragonFly, since its controls aren’t needed, and its setuid ability definitely isn’t needed.
