Undeadly.org - July 28, 2016, 9:45 am UTC

The EuroBSDCon 2016 talks and schedule have been released, and oh are we in for a treat!


All three major BSD's have a "how we made the network go fast" talk, nearly every single timeslot has a networking related talk, and most of the non-networking talks look fantastic as well.


The OpenBSD related talks are:


  • Embracing the BSD routing table - mpi@
  • rc.d(8) on OpenBSD - ajacoutot@
  • OpenBSD meets 802.11n - stsp@
  • OpenBSD: pf+rdomains create splendid multi-tenancy firewalls - Philipp Buehler (formerly known as pb@)
  • Dropping in 80Gbits (hopefully) of stateful firewalling capacity with PF and OpenOSPFd - Gareth Llewellyn
  • What we learnt from natively building packages on exotic archs - landry@
  • Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) implementation and support in OpenBSD - phessler@
  • Retrofitting privsep into ports tools - espie@
  • Why and how you ought to keep multibyte character support simple - ingo@


  • And an OpenBSD related tutorial is


  • OpenBSD: Building a test-environment for multi-tenancy firewalls - Philipp Buehler


  • We're very excited about this year's EuroBSDCon, looks to be a fantastic one. Register Now!

    ReleasespfSense 2.3.2-RELEASE Now Available!
    We are happy to announce the release of pfSense® software version 2.3.2!
    This is a maintenance release in the 2.3.x series, bringing a number of bug fixes. The full list of changes is on the 2.3.2 New Features and Changes page.
    This release includes fixes for 60 bugs, 8 features and 2 todo items completed.
    If you haven’t yet caught up on the changes in 2.3.x, check out the Features and Highlights video. Past blog posts have covered some of the changes, such as the performance improvements from tryforward, and the webGUI update.
    As always, you can upgrade from any prior version directly to 2.3.2. The Upgrade Guide covers everything you’ll need to know for upgrading in general.  There are a few areas where additional caution should be exercised with this upgrade if upgrading from 2.2.x or an earlier release, all noted in the 2.3 Upgrade Guide.
    For those upgrading from a 2.3 beta or RC version who have not yet upgraded to 2.3-RELEASE, please see this post.
    While, nearly all of the common regressions between 2.2.6 and 2.3-RELEASE have been fixed in subsequent releases, the following still exist:
    • IPsec IPComp does not work. This is disabled by default. However in 2.3.1, it is automatically not enabled to avoid encountering this problem. Bug 6167
    • IGMP Proxy does not work with VLAN interfaces, and possibly other edge cases. Bug 6099. This is a little-used component. If you’re not sure what it is, you’re not using it.
    • Those using IPsec and OpenBGPD may have non-functional IPsec unless OpenBGPD is removed. Bug 6223
    Compared to pfSense 2.2.x, the list of available packages in pfSense 2.3.x has been significantly trimmed.  We have removed packages that have been deprecated upstream, no longer have an active maintainer, or were never stable. A few have yet to be converted for Bootstrap and may return if converted. See the 2.3 Removed Packages list for details.  pfSense 2.3.2 does bring back ntopng, and the vnstat (traffic totals) package is new.
    Downloads are available on the mirrors as usual.
    Downloads for New Installs and Upgrades to Existing Systems – note it’s usually easier to just use the auto-update functionality, in which case you don’t need to download anything from here. Check the Firmware Updates page for details.


    FreeBSD 11.0-BETA2The development of the upcoming major version of FreeBSD, whose final release is scheduled for early September, continues at a fast pace. Although delayed by a week, the 11.0-BETA2 build was finally announced yesterday: "The second BETA build of the 11.0-RELEASE release cycle is now available. A summary of changes since 11.0-BETA1 includes: several build- and toolchain-related fixes; WITNESS and INVARIANTS have been disabled on powerpc, powerpc64, arm and armv6 architectures; freebsd-update(8) has been updated to allow '*-dbg' distribution sets; ctld(8) no longer exits when reloading the configuration with invalid initiator-portal clauses; GENERIC-NODEBUG kernel configurations have been removed; the callout code has been updated to avoid a system panic with TCP timers; several other changes." See also the (incomplete) release notes which are still work-in-progress. Quick links to download the amd64 and i386 installation DVD images: FreeBSD-11.0-BETA2-amd64-dvd1.iso (2,479MB, SHA512), FreeBSD-11.0-BETA2-i386-dvd1.iso (2,203MB, SHA512).

    New PacBSD ISO AvailableA new iso is available for testing for 64bit. Currently there are two install media, one for DVD/CD and one for USB devices. Be sure to select the right media. Dot img for usb and dot iso for CD/DVD.
    Download is available here
    Currently the main packages available for testing are: LXDE, chromium, Xorg, wine, transmission and a few Window Managers. New Packages are added daily and more DE should be available in a few days.
    xfce4, firefox and vlc will be next uploaded. Though there are multiple PKGBUILD for these already available at
    Github
    Also you can view daily reports of the repository, which includes broken packages, packages which fail to pull in dependencies, outdated packages (Checked against freebsd ports) and other information:

    If You need additional help, feel free to join irc.freenode.net ‪#‎pacbsd‬-dev as this is quite active. All new uploaded packages, git commits, repository reports are posted here daily.
    One more note, any issues can be reported to us directly on #pacbsd-dev on IRC, or on our bug tracker.
    Bug Tracker

    DragonFly 4.6 release candidate 2 available DragonFly 4.6 release candidate 2 has been tagged.  You can pull it directly from the master site in img or iso form (check your local mirror instead if possible), or shift to the new tag.
    “Where is RC1?” you may ask?  I tagged the first release candidate some days ago, and this bug was immediately found right after.  It was easier to go right to RC2 once a fix was found.
    This candidate will probably lead directly to a release version, so if you want to run the release version exactly, wait a few days.
