Do you still reflexively type “shutdown -p now” to power down your computer? I haven’t been able to break that habit. A recent documentation commit reminded me that “poweroff” exists, even though I posted about it 7 years ago.
If you want to work on Bluetooth on DragonFly, there’s more people adding to the bounty.
karu.pruun posted an answer on how to get DragonFly onto your GPT/EFI drive.
Jails on DragonFly can now route to loopback addresses (i.e. 127.0.0.1). Because of this, they can work like shared IPs and the jail can connect to the host.
I think this means that you no longer have to bind jail services to specific IPs as you did previously. Don’t quote me on that; I’ve run few jails in my life.
Update: I should have linked this too: the sysctl jail.defaults.allow_listen_override that makes it easier in the host system too.
On EFNet #dragonflybsd, Matthew Dillon and ‘mjg’ have been discussing various way to optimize for bulk builds. A recent update from mjg for different memory functions shaved 1.7% off bulk build time – significant, when you are talking tens of thousands of packages.
I didn’t read far enough ahead in my backlog, if that makes sense. i915 has another update, to 20160808.
If you’ve got a pcm audio device – and you probably do – and a headphone jack – ditto – this thread may help you find the right sysctl to enable it on DragonFly.
I tagged DragonFly 5.6.3, and built images. You should run 5.8, cause it’s the most recent, but this means there’s an image that captures all the last bugfixes in the 5.6 series. You can see them in the tag message if you are curious.
I moved the 4.x ISO/IMG release files for DragonFly out to an existing “older” directory. If you’re looking for a old release image, it’s available via the web.
Note that it’ll be a few hours until this change filters through to the mirrored directories. The 4.x images are all older than 2 years, so this is of most benefit to mirror sites.
