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 email@example.com 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.
The version of qemu in dports is not set up to support this, yet. Until then, you can download a prebuilt version.
ChiBUG meeting is at 6 PM at the normal place, which means you should go if you are near, and vaccinated.
Many, many times over the years I have tried answering problems with “… and maybe something’s wrong with the RAM?”, which is always possible but not always probable. For once, it’s really what happened in this story of strange HAMMER2 errors.
This note from James Cook describes how to get Wireguard functioning on DragonFly; his linked patch is not necessary at this point since it’s been committed to dports – though not in the latest binaries.
I’m actually some days late in reporting this, but there’s a new full build of packages for DragonFly 6.0; it’s following the quarterly release schedule for ports, so 2021Q2 is the base.
This goes with the recent merges from -current into 6.0. Now is a good time to update your system completely, if you have not already.
James Cook continues to work on zalloc, and he’s published a small report on his progress.
If you are upgrading an older 5.8.x system to DragonFly 6, and get a lua error when updating pkg: manually copy over a config file, and you’ll be set.
There’s only been one issue found in the release candidate so far. It’s fixed, so I’ll tag and build 6.0 within the next few days.
