Due to overwhelming response, the deadline for submitting talks to EuroBSDCon has been
extended:


Since there was a huge rush of submissions just on the very last day, we have decided to give a second chance for all of you that didn’t quite finish your talk or tutorial proposal in time for the deadline.

The new date is set to May 22nd, but you don’t have to wait until the very last moment. Send in your suggestions right away. We think there still is room for some more topics related to *BSD left to present.

For those of you who already have sent in yours, we are very happy to see so many good submissions. Don’t hesitate to add another topic to your submissions if you haven’t run out of good ideas yet.


If you've been sitting on that paper, now's the time to ship it!

BSDNow Episode 085: PIE in the Sky

Undeadly.org - 2015-04-21 07:34:01 UTC


A bit late out of the gate, Undeadly readers are likely interested in the
latest episode
of
BSDNow,
featuring news of Solaris working to include OpenBSD's pf as an option on upcoming releases,
the Bay Area BSD User Group keeping a stream of videos from their meetings going,
some long-form blogging about the OpenBSD ports system,
a discussion about keeping your home firewalls up to date,
LLVM growing a fuzzing library, and most especially an
interview with Pascal Stumpf (pascal@), with an overview of the whys and hows of address space layout randomization (ASLR) and the work extending position-independent executable (PIE) to statically-linked binaries.

p2k15 Hackathon Report: schwarze@ on USE_GROFF

Ingo Schwarze (schwarze@) writes in with our fourth report from the p2k15 ports hackathon:


When groff was removed from the OpenBSD base system in October 2010,
Marc Espie@ marked more than 3000 ports with the USE_GROFF
bsd.port.mk(5) variable, meaning that their manuals were formatted
with groff at port build time and the preformatted versions included
in the package. Over time, as mandoc(1) matured and learnt to
handle more and more syntax, the number of ports having USE_GROFF
gradually decreased.

Undeadly's very own Peter Hansteen has
written up
some PF-on-Solaris-related
email chatter:

Roughly a week ago, on April 5th, 2015, parts of Oracle's roadmap for upcoming releases of their Solaris operating system was leaked in a message to the public OpenBSD tech developer mailing list. This is notable for several reasons, one is that Solaris, then owned and developed by (the now defunct) Sun Microsystems, was the original development platform for Darren Reed's IP Filter, more commonly known as IPF, which in turn was the software PF was designed to replace.


As they say, read the whole thing!

softraid(4) - RAID 5 Call for Testing

padding: 0px; padding-left: 1em; }


Joel Sing (jsing@) has put out a
call for testing
for RAID 5 on
softraid(4):


For those not following source-changes@, I have just re-enabled the RAID 5
discipline for softraid(4).

During the last two hackathons in Dunedin, the RAID 5 implementation was
largely rewritten. As far as I am aware, the last missing part was the lack
of ability to resume a partial rebuild, which has been fixed - it now needs
further testing and usage so that any remaining issues can be found.

BSDNow 084: pkg remove freebsd-update

DragonFlyBSD Digest - 2015-04-10 03:26:28 UTC
This week’s BSDNow talks with Baptiste Daroussin about developing and using pkg, for ports and for packaging the base FreeBSD system.  (Baptiste has been seen on #dragonflybsd, since pkg is on DragonFly, so I’m sure there’s some relevant bits there, too.)  There’s also the usual news summary.

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.
