Something interesting: graphs of the commit activity for some (all?) of the OpenBSD committers.Â (via ‘constant’ on #dragonflybsd)Â I’d like to do the same for DragonFly.Â Plus, GIANT DAEMON HEAD.
OnLAMP.com has a 3-page interview with various OpenBSD developers about the features in the newest release.Â The interview goes into interesting detail, and for relevance, some of the newer wireless drivers in DragonFly came from this code work.
Seen on KernelTrap, then OpenBSD Journal and then Slashdot: BSD support (specifically OpenBSD) hardware support is improving faster than Linux in some cases.
Apparently the Mozilla Foundation donated US$10K to OpenSSH.Â That’s good!Â They still need money, though.
Daemon News has an interview of OpenBSD’s Theo deRaadt, where he mentions DragonFly. The last response in the interview is also entertaining.
Here’s something interesting: there’s an installer for OpenBSD called “YaifO“, which requires only SSH to work – no keyboard or serial access needed. Of course, there’s no binary, no docs, and no way to do it on a multiboot system… but the concept’s neat.
