Somewhat short this week, but there’s several releases.
It is status report season!
I forgot to link to BSD Now 421: ZFS eats CPU on Thursday!
I have some barely-BSD links this week but I don’t think you’ll mind.
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.
More BUG meetings are happening, which is great.
I’m writing this on the road, so it’s a bit low on links. Sorry! I will have much more next week.
Judging from this large number of commits talking about NVMM support, Aaron Li is bringing NVMM from NetBSD to DragonFly. And here’s some minor statistics.
Follow the helloSystem links this week.
Multiple links from one source is the mini-theme this week.
Literally this is my open browser tabs pasted in order.
Done early, and I have more BSD-related tabs to get through.
Some opinion, some documentation.
Lots to read, yet I still have unposted tabs!
There’s some opinions mixed in this week!
I’m hitting all the unixes.
Well, I made up for last week’s short list.
Semi-BSD-related: One of my 3 workplaces needs a Software Team Lead. (scroll down) The main product is FreeBSD-based, though this team position does not directly work with it.
There’s a lot to catch up on!
