I installed new SSL certificates for this server over the weekend and I have to say, Let’s Encrypt and certbot are the easiest SSL setup process I’ve ever done. It worked exactly as expected on DragonFly.
The recent tmux package update reminds me to mention ‘pkg lock’. When you update packages, pkg will update everything. If there’s a package you don’t want changed, the pkg lock(8) command will keep it at the current version. There can be some other packages held back because of dependencies, but that’s OK. Don’t forget to pkg unlock when no longer needed…
NYCBUG’s hosting “Extreme scripting with KSH and AWK” with G Clifford Williams, tomorrow. It’s online, so everyone can get the lesson.
If you want to update to the now fixed tmux port, you’ll want to add a -f to the pkg command to force it; the version number hasn’t changed.
tuxillo has built a new set of packages for dports; upgrade using the instructions in his post. (Though ‘pkg upgrade’ has generally worked for me as the quickest solution.)
Aaron LI posted a summary of how he went from zero to done, so to speak, porting NVMM to DragonFly. There’s some interesting future projects there, too.
The headline says almost everything, in this case. There’s a HOWTO for DragonFly NVMM which should get most of what you want to do, and I’m sure it will be updated.
Here’s something I just learned: If you are running dma(8), /etc/dma.conf will contain MAILNAME. If your email server is somewhere else, but you set MAILNAME as your domain – dma will deliver locally.
I had /etc/dma.conf set with MAILNAME shiningsilence.com – so dma kept delivering overnight periodic results to root, which was aliased to firstname.lastname@example.org in /etc/mail/aliases and so it was delivered to ‘justin’ locally on the machine.
Changing MAILNAME to www.shiningsilence.com – the host you are reading right now – fixed the problem. Now, whether this was an automatically set config or something I misconfigured some years ago… I can’t tell.
