I have some barely-BSD links this week but I don’t think you’ll mind.
It’s been a very quiet week, so here’s a link to BSD Now’s netcat printing episode. There’s some variety in the Beastie Bits, too.
The lead article in this week’s BSD Now talks about how to not change your OS – though it’s both Linux flavors, so it’s not necessarily BSD-related except for schadenfreude. There’s a bunch of other articles linked, so don’t be distracted by my splitting of hairs.
ChiBUG is meeting tonight at 6:30 CDT via Zoom. “Protecting OpenBSD from DMA Attacks” is the presentation; RSVP to the address in that linked message for the meeting link.
Today’s mini-theme: follow threads!
This week’s BSD Now talks about online conferences – something I hope we can resume soon. There’s other links of course but that’s the one I want.
Well, not what are you doing there, but you’ll be describing “what you are doing” at a roundtable for NYCBUG’s August meeting tonight.
This week’s BSD Now talks about some pro-BSD ideas, which may or may not include the idea of Linux with a BSD userland. I find it slightly upsetting.
No theme this week; just catching up with all the links I didn’t get to last week.
This week’s BSD Now covers different topics – you may think from the headline it’s a “tips and tricks” link, but no, it’s about confidential info.
Aaron LI’s added NVMM, hardware acceleration for virtual machines, to DragonFly.
The version of qemu in dports is not set up to support this, yet. Until then, you can download a prebuilt version.
Since NVMM originated on NetBSD, the NetBSD documentation page for it describes how to use it quite well. There’s a man page in DragonFly for it too, of course. There’s even basic machines to try.
ChiBUG meeting is at 6 PM at the normal place, which means you should go if you are near, and vaccinated.
More BUG meetings are happening, which is great.
This week’s BSD Now goes into structure and progress, judging from the titles on display. Also, I did not link last week’s “410: OpenBSD Consumer Gateway” because I was on the road – look at it too if you haven’t yet.
ndis(4) is removed from DragonFly; it’s probably been years since it was applicable to any hardware. I don’t think it will affect anyone – but it’s an interesting tool from a historical perspective; for a while it was possible to use Windows XP drivers to create a BSD network driver, effectively.
I’m writing this on the road, so it’s a bit low on links. Sorry! I will have much more next week.
I’ll post a reminder for the NYCBUG event.
