For future edification: If you have HAMMER2 installed, the bulkfree operation will create console/dmesg activity even when nothing is wrong, to show operations are happening.
BSD Now 271 is up with no interview but a news summary, including EuroBSDCon and MeetBSD con reports, and an OpenBSD and Ansible item that should be interesting to most anyone, among other items.
If you happen to be using DragonFly from a network location that only allows http/https as outbound traffic, you won’t be able to update /usr/src using defaults. /usr/Makefile pulls DragonFly source using a git:// URL.
The fix is to use the read-only Github mirror. You can set origin manually or just change GITHOST in /usr/Makefile (or GITURL_SRC if you are on DragonFly-master) to “https://github.com/DragonFlyBSD/DragonFlyBSD”.
(Guess what I did today? Updated to note it’s different on -master. Thanks tuxillo for reminding me of this whole thing.)
Ensuring Perl’s Viability on FreeBSD: A NYCBUG-NY.PM Collaboration is the presentation at tomorrow’s NYCBUG meeting. Going by the details, it’s covering multiple BSDs. Go, if you are near – I wish I was.
Aaron LI’s added ip6addrctl(8) to DragonFly; on by default. There should be a man page entry for it within a couple hours, online.
I almost put the OpenSSH stuff in In Other BSDs yesterday, but it is really cross-platform at this point.
Backlog finally cleared! You have a lot of clicking to do because of that.
This week’s BSDNow has a whole lot of release news – GhostBSD, OpenBSD, OpenSSH, plus plenty more. Make sure to check the Beastie Bits at the bottom of the page.
Aaron LI has added openresolv to DragonFly. According to the commit message, this is for dhcpcd(8) support later. It’s added as resolvconf(8), needed for IPv6 DHCP support and a replacement for rtsold(8).
