No pun for a title, but it’s a good description: BSD Now has an interview of Solene Rapenne, who I’ve linked to about a zillion times in the In Other BSDs posts.
If you have a NVMe disk that happens to let’s say report inaccurate capabilities (i.e. lie cause it was built cheap), the NVMe driver in DragonFly can now attempt to survive the surprise.
DragonFly and Hyper-V’s virtual disk support do not appear to co-operate well, according to this bug report. Anyone have a Hyper-V host where they can confirm?
I am definitely doing very much nothing today.

The holiday puns continue with BSD Now doing a reverse interview of the hosts.
Longtime readers won’t be surprised by any of the content, but there’s a DragonFly overview at MakeUseOf.
It’s on Jitsi so you can totally attend. The announcement also mentions the next three months of presentations and who’s coming in to present. There’s some good (not necessarily BSD) content on the way.
Guess which link this week is a business decision I am maybe considering…
- Weird: Generative art in Common Lisp. More here from comments at source link.
- Print-your-own chocolate molds.
- All Sound Recordings Prior to 1923 Will Enter the US Public Domain in 2022.

Again, trying to clean out the Solene links in my RSS feed – and not succeeding!

I feel like it’s perfect that the first article linked in this week’s BSD Now is for GhostBSD, since this is exactly the right date for that pun.

If you are running bleeding-edge DragonFly _and_ installed the newest dports binary package build _and_ you are using Samba, you may need to update and rebuild.
This week’s BSD Now talks about HAMBUG, the BUG meeting I don’t catch enough, plus ZFS news.
Tomohiro Kusumi has removed the old GNU implementation of ext2fs from DragonFly and added the non-GPL-encumbered FreeBSD implementation of ext2fs.
