More links this week to make up for last week’s short haul.
DragonFly developer Tuxillo has done something notable by its absence: cleaned up a lot of old bug reports. That’s usually an unseen and unthanked task, so here’s credit for it.
This week’s BSD Now is depressingly honest in the title; no puns. Along with the normal links, there’s a Beastie Bit this week for Networks From Scratch.
An interesting thought: since HAMMER2 is intended to be a multi-master file system, it has to figure out – and quickly – which is the most up to date versions of any given file. That means you could have multiple versions of a file existing at the same time until that decision is made. That wouldn’t be visible from a user perspective.
The Hamilton (Canada) BSD user group will meet through Jitsi tomorrow, June 14th, 4:00 PM Eastern. I’m preposting this based on a SEMIBUG mention.
Mini-theme of hardware this week.
A bit short cause I ran out of time.
Hopefully there’s a new ISO/img on the mirrors for DragonFly 6.2.2 by the time you read this – or you can just update your installation. The changelog is short, because this is a bugfix-level release. Also, don’t forget there’s a new set of binary packages out; update that too if you haven’t.
This week’s BSD Now has the usual news, plus a link I think everyone can use on interpreting traceroute / mtr output.
If you’re interested in having virtio_console on DragonFly, keep an eye on this bug report.
The St. Louis Unix Users Group monthly meeting is tonight at 6:30 Central time, talking about rsnapshot and LDAP. It’s online, so you can attend even if you are not near.
There’s a new dports build, and there’s been some updates so a new point release to 6.2.2 for DragonFly is a good idea. The new binary packages are available now with ‘pkg upgrade’, and I’ll work on 6.2.2 over the next few days.
This was done very early; I have been rigorous at cleaning up open tabs.
Your unrelated music for the week: KUTMAH – Original Production Beat Mix.
The Nixers link will keep you busy for a while if this isn’t enough here.
This week’s BSD Now talks about NetBSD and ZFS, among other things. I’ll point out an interesting link in the Beastie Bits, a way of exploring /usr/games.
mlockall(2) in DragonFly has been revamped for compatibility with other implementations. This should have no obvious end user impact, other than a bit easier to port stuff. I want to mention it to note the work done.
You can now set a description for a network interface on DragonFly. Don’t use ETH0, please.
No mini-theme emerged this week.
I had a lot of links built up for this; finished early.
If you are trying to use both NAT and IPv6 with pf on DragonFly, there was a bug (seen here with FreeBSD) with :0 where it would use link-local addresses. It’s now fixed.
