In Other BSDs for 2018/08/18

Overflow from two weeks running, cause of travel.

In Other BSDs for 2018/08/11

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!

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)

Lots of announcements, lots of reading.  Note the first item listed is happening today.

Lots of different items, probably because of BSDCan.

CPU bug hardening added to DragonFly

Matthew Dillon’s added some patches to DragonFly related to securing floating point state, following similar work in OpenBSD.  There isn’t a reported catchy-name issue to match it, like Spectre/Meltdown – yet.

(If anyone has a good link to the similar OpenBSD commits, please share; I did not find them on a cursory search.)

Update: the fix is now in 5.2 and an update is recommended.

BSDCan is running this weekend.  There is, depending on what time you are reading this, a livestream.

BSDNow 249: Router On A Stick

BSDNow 249 is covering a really wide range of topics including an uncommon amount of NetBSD, so I’m going to do the easy thing and repeat the summary: “OpenZFS and DTrace updates in NetBSD, NetBSD network security stack audit, Performance of MySQL on ZFS, OpenSMTP results from p2k18, legacy Windows backup to FreeNAS, ZFS block size importance, and NetBSD as router on a stick.”

One of these links will be very useful to someone.

I have the normal list of links, but here’s a feature.  At first glance, this looks like Netgate, the commercial entity behind pfsense, is not using FreeBSD for their new product.  However, Jim Thompson of Netgate steps up and give a full-on explanation, and points out there’s already code out there to do this – it needs contributors.

Note the eleventy-jillion hackathon reports.

Your thinkpiece for the week: The cultural shift from not selling out to blowing up.  There’s a BSD analogy possible there.

This came together very nicely.

BUGs BUGs BUGs!

Some nice tech explanations this week.

Opinion time: The Reddit / Hacker News forums have reached the anything/everything point where there’s no longer a focus.  Lobste.rs is worth visiting, though, for BSD content and in general.
