Martin Ivanov has completed his multiboot + DragonFly tutorial. You can read his users@ post on it now, though it should show up in dragonflybsd.org documentation soon.
Here’s a work in progress: Multiboot installs on DragonFly. Follow the thread for updates.
Charlotte Koch sent me this link some time ago and I’ve been remiss in not posting it: DragonFly through QEMU, using NVMM, on NetBSD.
This is I think not resolved yet, but here’s something I didn’t know: keeping Chromium from being tied into Google’s services is actually a build issue, not a settings issue. i.e. once it’s in binary form, you can’t opt out.
The Environment Quickstart document for DragonFly now has a HAMMER2 section.
I’m posting now because it’s happening Wednesday and waiting for In Other BSDs on Saturday will be too late: the next FreeBSD Office Hours (livestream with Q&A) is happening on the 16th.
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.
If you follow the upgrade instructions in my 5.8 update post, there is one ‘gotcha’. If your copy of /usr/src was downloaded using “make src-create-shallow”, you will not have any git history – or any branches other than 5.6.
The easy, cheesy way to fix it is to remove /usr/src, then type “make src-create” in /usr, and proceed from there. There’s probably a way to edit in the other branches, but I haven’t tried it yet. I’m counseling the brute force method for now.
Note that you will get some noise in dmesg until you remove opie from where it’s mentioned in /etc/pam.d/ files. It’s cosmetic unless you use opie, and you probably don’t. I mention it because I noticed it. Check /usr/src/UPDATING after pulling in the 5.8 source to see details of this and other changes.
Linked cause I always forget the right shell command for UTF-8, to reduce the amount of ???? ??? ??? ??????? ??.
If you’ve been following HAMMER2 for some time, these questions and answers will not be new to you – but they are useful notes all the same.
I imagine this may work for any BSD, really. Aaron Li has the instructions, which may be especially useful for non-English readers.
