A full slate of BSDs this week.

In Other BSDs for 2017/09/23

Thank goodness for overflow from last week, because I haven’t had time to read.

In Other BSDs for 2017/09/09

Already overflowed to next week.


New system: Ravenports

John Marino has assembled a new packaging and building system.  It’s called Ravenports, and he wrote a short intro, and has a filled-out site to go look at.

This is big news, in part because he knows what he’s doing (John worked on dports and created synth) and because it’s cross-platform.  The prior work on synth is part of the reason DragonFly works so well under pressure – the “build everything as fast as possible as complete as possible” strategy makes a great stress test.

There’s no need to change software management strategies yet.  It can be used at the same time as dports, so it doesn’t necessarily change anything for the next DragonFly release.

Lots of links this week – so many I’ve already started next week’s post.

Why why why…

I measure the success of In Other BSDs by how many different BSD flavors I can reference.  This is a good week.

Lots of storage this week.

Note the end this week of pc98, the most focused of niche platforms.

Accidental theme this week: books.

In Other BSDs for 2017/01/07

There’s always a rush of links after a holiday, as people sit at home and catch up on what they’ve wanted to do.

In Other BSDs for 2016/10/29

I get all the BSDs this week.
