Some catchup here from stuff I missed last week:
A lot of variety this week.
- tame(2) WIP, process sandboxing for OpenBSD.
- pbi vs pkg
- Is there a BSD that fits my needs?
- Which BSD is right for me?
- Hyperthreading + SMP + Intel graphics on OpenBSD
- EuroBSDCon 2015 Registration Is Open
- DiscoverBSD for 2015/07/20.
- Brute-force OpenSSH attacks. The default config is not vulnerable to this on DragonFly. FreeBSD’s config with PAM may be the only one. (via)
- Domesticating applications, OpenBSD style. (via)
- c2k15 reports on Undeadly: one, two, three, four.
- Here is a non-BSD containers explanation, and then here’s Docker on FreeBSD.
- Michael W. Lucas is giving a talk on August 20th at the Livingston County BSD User’s Group meeting. (That’s in Michigan, not the NY county where I work, darnit.)
- FreeBSD now has a Code of Conduct.
- Backgammon bug from at least 4.1a BSD, 3+ decades ago.
- Tag jumping in mandoc. (I like this idea)
- OpenBSD on Linode. Similar techniques might work for any BSD install. (via, via)
I seem to have In Other BSDs exactly 1 day off from the OPNsense release schedule, so far.
Insert fireworks graphic here.
More and more BSDCan videos keep showing up. (See the bottoms of individual speaker pages on the BSDCan site.) Here’s the PC-BSD summary.
A calmer week, probably because of the U.S. holiday.
This includes all the BSD material I didn’t have time to get posted last week. I hope you have some time for reading today; there is a lot here.
- Royal activity affecting your open source files.
- Windows guest support (or at least the start of it) in bhyve.
- Bad memory blacklisting in FreeBSD. I’d be worried about keeping partially bad RAM in place, but this is probably being used on a larger scale.
- 25 year old col bug, fixed.
- The start of NUMA support in FreeBSD.
- Alpine POC and Routerboard support in FreeBSD.
- FreeBSD now supports more than 8 audio channels.
- NetBSD is starting to gain EdgeRouter support.
- NetBSD gains in-kernel splash screen support.
- Openresolv 3.7 is in both FreeBSD and NetBSD.
- EU study recommends OpenBSD. (Thanks, PCTF)
- Now, sshd in OpenBSD defaults to ‘PermitRootLogin=no‘ (like in DragonFly!)
- Device Developer’s Conference, happening in the UK over the next month or so. (via openbsd-misc)
- OpenBSD has released, shipped, and there’s some discs with errors being replaced, though there’s a workaround.
- From 0 to an OpenBSD install, with no hands and a custom disk layout. (via)
- Livingston County, Michigan has a BSD user group starting up.
- PC-BSD 10.2.1-RC1 comments.
- BSDCon Brazil 2015 has a call for papers out.
- New to BSD, Questions about Firewall configuration.
- DiscoverBSD for 2015/05/11.
- A week of pkgsrc #10.
- PC-BSD 11.0-CURRENTMAY2015 images now available
- Yes, You Can Virtualize FreeNAS
- pfSense is now available as a “VMware Ready Virtual Firewall Appliance“.
- Michael W. Lucas’s Tarsnap talk is online.
- As is the cover to his upcoming FreeBSD Mastery: ZFS book.
- BSDTalk 253 has 30 minutes of conversation with George Neville-Neil about “The Design and Implementation of the FreeBSD Operating System”, 2nd edition.
I’ve already mentioned the Hammer2/OpenBSD Summer of Code project (one of several), but here’s more:
(No mailing list links this week; I’m way behind in my reading because of work. Sorry!)
It’s been a relatively calm week, for once.
At the last minute, as usual.
Lastly: nvi2, a multibyte folk of nvi, seen in multiple places. This may be good for every BSD to adopt. (every other BSD, I mean.)
If you’re part of a BSD user group, please let me know your schedule. I’m able to catch NYCBUG announcements cause I’m on their announce@ mailing list – but I could use more.
It’s been a quiet week in BSD-land, at least in terms of me finding links.
The newest BSDNow video goes into PC-BSD and booting, and interviews Justin Gibbs about the FreeBSD Foundation.
Well, this week just sort of took off for BSD links.
A late update: NYCBUG’s upcoming meetings and presentations, with the next one on March 4th, this week. If you have a local BSD user group, I would like to know about it!
There’s some DragonFly material in here, though I normally confine that to the rest of the week. It’s inextricable from the rest of the links.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Your not-BSD BSD link of the week: Badass Space Dragon.
This week is relatively quiet.
I’m not sure how I ended up with so much BSD material this week, but hey, we all benefit!
Your extended read: scaling linux-based router hardware recommendations, from the NANOG operators list. Follow the thread. It’s theoretically about Linux, but people name BSD solutions all through it. Hmm…
