DragonFlyBSD Digest - 2015-01-31 14:25:06 UTC

A user’s experience with OpenBSD as a desktop.  (via) FreeBSD Jail Management Tools. nanoBSD for servers – part 1. (via) Sonicwall to pfSense? My first OpenBSD port.  (via) Two new LibreSSL shirts, with cash going back […]

As
reported
on misc@, there are two different styles of T-shirt available for pre-order:

Hi everyone,

Some new awesome LibreSSL T-shirts are available to help fund
developments. You can see them on https://www.openbsdstore.com.

We’re running a small pre-order for about 2 weeks. If you have any
questions please email us off list.

Yes, these are official products with funds directed back to the project.

Thanks,

PS: Thank you to everyone who supported us over the transition period


You can support the project and look spiffy at the same time, either by
choosing hope,
or, like the Editors,
an orderly evacuation of the flaming wreck.

Adam Wołk
shares his experiences
in porting the
Otter
web browser to OpenBSD:

[My first OpenBSD port] has just landed in the ports tree. It's been a fun ride, this post is a summary of the whole process from the perspective of a first time contributor. Note that this is not a tutorial, just my personal experiences of getting my first port accepted to the tree.


The article is a good overview of getting involved in the porting process; if you've ever been interested in how the process works, take a look!

In Other BSDs for 2014/01/24

DragonFlyBSD Digest - 2015-01-24 14:55:06 UTC

Learn Unix the Hard Way.  Actually OpenBSD and nothing except a table of contents yet.  (via) How not to upgrade your systems. Linux vs. BSD: which should you use?  Nothing new discovered here.  (via) PC-BSD 10.1.1-RC1 Now Available. Some upcoming BSD-related books […]

BSDNow 073: Pipe Dreams

DragonFlyBSD Digest - 2015-01-23 01:19:40 UTC
It’s Thursday, and that means a new BSDNow episode.  The interview is with David Maxwell, who gave a talk about Unix pipelines at MeetBSD 2014.  There’s the usual amount of discussion of recent topics, too, and I see they have a new sponsor.

Glasgow OpenBSD presentation

DragonFlyBSD Digest - 2015-01-20 22:08:52 UTC
Normally I’d hold this off until the In Other BSDs item on Saturday, but by then it will be too late: There’s a “Building redundant and transparent firewalls with OpenBSD” presentation happening at the Scottish Linux User’s Group meeting, Thursday night in Glasgow, Scotland.

Book Review: FreeBSD Mastery: Storage Essentials

Slashdot - 2015-01-19 20:10:00 UTC
Saint Aardvark writes If, like me, you administer FreeBSD systems, you know that (like Linux) there is an embarrassment of riches when it comes to filesystems. GEOM, UFS, soft updates, encryption, disklabels — there is a *lot* going on here. And if, like me, you're coming from the Linux world your experience won't be directly applicable, and you'll be scaling Mount Learning Curve. Even if you *are* familiar with the BSDs, there is a lot to take in. Where do you start? You start here, with Michael W. Lucas' latest book, FreeBSD Mastery: Storage Essentials. You've heard his name before; he's written Sudo Mastery (which I reviewed previously), along with books on PGP/GnuPGP, Cisco Routers and OpenBSD. This book clocks in at 204 pages of goodness, and it's an excellent introduction to managing storage on FreeBSD. From filesystem choice to partition layout to disk encryption, with sidelong glances at ZFS along the way, he does his usual excellent job of laying out the details you need to know without every veering into dry or boring. Keep reading for the rest of Saint Aardvark's review. Read more of this story at Slashdot.

Book review: FreeBSD Essentials: Storage Mastery

DragonFlyBSD Digest - 2015-01-19 19:15:49 UTC
Normally if I talk about a filesystem here, I talk about Hammer, which is not a surprise.  However, I often read and review Michael W. Lucas’s BSD-oriented books, and he has written FreeBSD Mastery: Storage Essentials.  I’m reviewing it here because it’s obviously BSD-related, and some portions are directly relevant for other BSDs. Disk setup […]

In Other BSDs for 2015/01/17

DragonFlyBSD Digest - 2015-01-17 14:22:32 UTC
Lots of material this week. New Update GUI for PC-BSD / Automatic Updates. Lumina Desktop 0.8.0 Released. (side note) I see these PC-BSD items in src updates, but these published summaries are so complete it’s better to wait and post them instead.  Other software orgs, take note. A week of pkgsrc, #6. Making the switch. Configuring X […]
