Hi Robert!  (Welcome back.)

This should probably wait until post-jessie because:
  * we didn't get DTrace working yet anyway;  we have no use yet
    for this header or the SDT probes in zfsutils package
  * we're out of time;  packages need to migrate *before* freeze,
    which is in 11 days, and Britney enforces a 10-day migration
    period now

Bug#766544: bind9: /sbin/dhclient requires ISC libs in /usr/lib

Package: bind9
Version: 1:9.9.5.dfsg-4.3
Severity: important
User: debian-bsd <at>
Usertags: kfreebsd


A consequence of /sbin/dhclient now being dynamically linked, is that it
requires libs under /usr/lib, so the case of /usr on a remote filesystem
such as NFS will no longer work if using DHCP.

(Not entirely kfreebsd-specific, but AIUI Linux with systemd is unlikely
to support such a setup nowadays?).

Is it possible those libs could be installed under /lib?  Thanks.

Bug#766424: jackd2: please enable using OSS on GNU/kFreeBSD

Severity: important

Please could you accept this patch to use OSS on GNU/kFreeBSD.
Otherwise jackd2 does not have any useful local audio device backends.

This has been well-tested on my system.

Re: Bug#740719: xserver-xorg-video-intel: requires KMS but loads non-KMS i915.ko on kfreebsd

severity 740719 important

Hi Christoph,

I assume this patch to xserver-xorg-video-intel is still needed, in
order to autoload i915kms+drm2 instead of i915?

At least the source at src/intel_device.c:138 still says:
| if (xf86LoadKernelModule("i915"))

Hi Christoph,

Should I assume this ancient bug filed against mesa is fixed now?

Bug#766282: Removed package(s) from unstable

We believe that the bug you reported is now fixed; the following
package(s) have been removed from unstable:

kfreebsd-downloader |      9.2-1 | source, kfreebsd-amd64, kfreebsd-i386
kfreebsd-downloader-9 |      9.2-1 | kfreebsd-amd64, kfreebsd-i386
kfreebsd-downloader-9.2 |      9.2-1 | kfreebsd-amd64, kfreebsd-i386

------------------- Reason -------------------
NVIU; obsoleted by kfreebsd-downloader-10

Note that the package(s) have simply been removed from the tag
database and may (or may not) still be in the pool; this is not a bug.
The package(s) will be physically removed automatically when no suite
references them (and in the case of source, when no binary references
it).  Please also remember that the changes have been done on the
master archive and will not propagate to any mirrors until the next
dinstall run at the earliest.

Packages are usually not removed from testing by hand. Testing tracks
unstable and will automatically remove packages which were removed
from unstable when removing them from testing causes no dependency
problems. The release team can force a removal from testing if it is
really needed, please contact them if this should be the case.

We try to close bugs which have been reported against this package
automatically. But please check all old bugs, if they were closed
correctly or should have been re-assigned to another package.

Thank you for reporting the bug, which will now be closed.  If you

Please give back mutextrace on kfreebsd-*


Please give back mutextrace to build on kfreebsd-amd64 and kfreebsd-i386

When I tried locally on wheezy kfreebsd-amd64 it built fine.  The last
build attempt was nearly 2 years ago so it seems worth a try.
