Lazy Reading for 2019/06/30

I’m going to be very busy over the next week, so I am not sure how consistent my posting schedule will be, or how much I will be able to build up for next weekend.  We’ll find out together.

Last minute, again.

Lazy Reading for 2019/06/23

Lots of topic range this week; no theme grew out – but that’s better in some ways!

Done at the last minute!

5.6.1 tagged and built

Shamelessly copied from my own users@ post: I tagged 5.6.1 and built it earlier today.  This version has a corrected sshd_config and fixes a lockup bug in ttm. The ISO should be showing up on in the next 20 minutes or so, or you can rebuild using the normal process on an existing 5.6 system:

cd /usr/src
git pull
make buildworld
make buildkernel
make installkernel
make installworld
make upgrade

If you are still on 5.4 or earlier, you need to bring in 5.6 sources, which is noted in the 5.6.0 announcement.

OPIE removal in DragonFly-master

OPIE was disabled recently in DragonFly.  Now that the 5.6 release is out, it has been removed.  This may require manual intervention if you are on DragonFly-master (i.e. 5.5. or 5.7) and update in the next day or two.  This need to fiddle with it will go away soon with changes to ‘make upgrade’; I will mention it when I see it.

This won’t affect anyone running 5.4 or 5.6.  It’s only in development.

SEMIBUG: Matt Parnell – Asterisk+FreePBX on FreeBSD

Matt Parnell is presenting Asterisk and FreePBX on FreeBSD at SEMIBUG’s monthly meeting, tomorrow, in Troy, Michigan.  Go, if you are near.

Credit goes to SEMIBUG for creating a Google Calendar which makes it slightly more likely I’ll catch the meeting and post about it.  Also, a nostalgia moment about the bad old days: I am so glad specialized hardware is no longer needed just to get on the phone network, since VoIP is widespread these days.  I hated dealing with flaky PRI lines.

Inadvertent theme this week: games.  Yet somehow I didn’t include a roguelike?  Dang.

I linked to some other BSD link roundups, so the joy of clicking can continue.
