Your unrelated music of the week: OV / ER / LO / AD from the Kleptones. The last two are linked but not yet released, so if they don’t work yet, come back in a week.
I finally cleared out most of my BSD RSS. Now everyone has to post more stuff and refill!
This week’s BSD Now talks about OpenBSD and OpenZFS – but not at the same time; don’t misread this.
You can now create FAT volumes on DragonFly. Not exactly high-tech, but a filesystem that most anything can read and write.
All over the place this week.
Live in-person meetings are happening, slowly, finally.
This has been a good week for BSD releases, hasn’t it? This week’s BSDNow gets into RISC-V, too.
SEMIBUG’s monthly meeting is online, and it’s tomorrow the 19th, at 1900 hours (-0400, Eastern) via Jitsi. It’s going to be about “the advantages of Emacs”, given by a group member. Go, see, even if it’s just to shake your fist at the screen and mumble “viiiiiiiiiiii”.
Mini-theme: old hardware or new terminals, you pick.
Somewhat short this week, but there’s several releases.
This week’s BSD Now is 50% OpenBSD, 50% FreeBSD, plus a whole lot of Beastie Bits.
6.0.1 is tagged and available. The major reason for this update is an expired Let’s Encrypt certificate that would cause problems when downloading dpkg binaries. A list of 6.0.1 commits is available.
I recommend the usual rebuild process mentioned on the 6.0 release notes:
Don’t forget to update your packages with ‘pkg upgrade’.
It’s not on their web page but it’s on Jitsi, so you can join now. (alerted via)
I managed to miss it last week, but last week’s BSD Now talks about NetFlix’s usage of FreeBSD to serve a ridiculous amount of data, among other things.
UNIX history for the mini-theme this week.
Your unrelated animation of the week: Cyriak Animator Pro.
It is status report season!
If you have encountered that problem with Let’s Encrypt and dports, the fix is committed and a make world is needed.
If libvirt running with nvmm on DragonFly interests you, watch this bug report.
