It’s a mad rush to get these all posted in time for the weekend.
Well, I cleared my tab backlog, but not my RSS backlog…
Still playing catchup with links.
Still catching up on links.
EuroBSDCon 2018 unfortunately had no video, but the presentations are showing up online.
Still running on extra links from previous weeks. Usually it takes a larger convention to cause this sort of backlog.
Built almost entirely with overflow from more than a week ago.
I am having trouble keeping up with BSD news items. This is a good problem to have.
Lots of event notices in here… Watch for what’s near you.
- The next KnoxBUG meeting is September 5th, with a Trident demo. I’ll post a reminder.
- OpenBSD.Amsterdam. Dedicated OpenBSD/vmd servers, which is a neat idea. Could probably do the same thing with vkernels.
- MeetBSD is happening October 19-20 in Santa Clara, CA. (via)
- Configuring OpenBSD – System and user config files for a more pleasant laptop. Not all of it is OpenBSD-specific. (via)
- Happy Bob’s Libtls tutorial. Also not wholly OpenBSD-specific; more libressl-specific. (via)
- AsiaBSDCon 2019 is happening March 21-24, Tokyo, Japan. (via)
- Ravenports now on gcc 8.2.
- Recent freebsd-jobs posts.
- [talk] ARM – any Tier-1 *BSD options? Nice support work from Netgate.
- libfuzzer, parts 1, 2, and 3 – a Summer of Code project for NetBSD. I linked the first one before, but hadn’t followed up until now. (via)
- OpenBSD, SpamPD and the Startup Bug. (also via)
- Public Access Multics. I am happy just typing that sentence.
Still haven’t cleared my backlog of links…
Overflow from two weeks running, cause of travel.
Overflow that I couldn’t catch up to before last weekend’s In Other BSD’s posting time. I try to always have these by 9 AM Eastern time Saturday. (Same for Lazy Reading on Sunday) I mentally imagine everyone sitting down with a drink and nothing else to do but click links, those mornings. At least, I hope that’s what it is.
I have more to post but just plain couldn’t get it all pasted!
BSDNow 257 (which is not as exciting a number as last week but still prime) has no interview but manages to hit all the right notes – every major BSD is mentioned and also links to recent convention reports.
Sascha Wildner has brought in the NetBSD version of mtree(8), as groundwork for some other changes. There’s little user effect at this point, but it’s worth being familiar with mtree as a tool. Take a look at the man page, especially the section on trojan horse detection under EXAMPLES.
A lot of this was early overflow posted ahead; I’ve been on the road.
A few of the links are not directly BSD-ish, but related.
Some overflow, and thank goodness cause I don’t have a day without work this week.
Lots of NetBSD links this week relative to usual.
Update: how did I miss this? PkgSrcCon 2018 is happening now in Berlin, and there’s a livestream. (via)
BSDNow 253: no interview, but it covers a range of topics I’d be proud to fit in an Other BSDs post. Of special interest (to me) this week: talking about fanless systems, cause it’s hot in North America, and Pinebooks, cause I still have a small computer fetish.
