[talk] Debian k/FreeBSD

Hey all,

For the August installfest, can someone spare me a 2.5" IDE drive or an extra CF card for my ThinkPad? I want to install and kick around Debian k/FreeBSD on it:

https://wiki.debian.org/Debian_GNU/kFreeBSD

Cheers!

[talk] FreeBSD Intel KMS/DRM Support

Hey all,
So Matt Macy on freebsd-x11 <at>  recently posted this call for testing:

https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-x11/2016-May/017560.html

I've been trying to help-out when I can, but it sounds like he'd benefit 
from having more people testing out his code.  He even went as far as 
building a USB image to test out on your laptop.

So if you have an i195 enabled desktop or laptop give it a spin :)

Cheers,
-pete

[talk] DVD's

Hi All,

I am facing a tricky situation with my DVD Drive's on my
PC/Laptop and also my pluggable DVD Drive. It doesnot
Recognize my  DVD's.

It there any reason for this? These are latest DVD's one
is FreeBSD DVD/Cent OS DVD and Microsoft Windows 7
DVD. I have never used ad DVD before. Used only CD's.

I cannot share any logs as this is during the installation
process. Can share screen shots for FreeBSD.

Regards,
Sujit K  M

[talk] Pf rule

All
  Does anyone know how to create a rule that acts as a simple port forward . For example inbound  traffic on
10.10.5.10:80 and I want to send it to 10.10.5.10:9090 . I suspect pf will not let me do this but I am unsure.

From: membership <at> sdf.org
Subject: [SDF] Plan9 Boot Camp is BACK!

The SDF Plan9 Boot Camp 2016 registration opens Today.  The camp will be 
self guided and the SDF VoIP conference bridge (1088), com, bboard and irc
can be used for group sessions.  

To register, please type 'plan9' at the shell.

There is no cost to be involved in the boot camp and you will have access
until September 2016.  Donations are greatly appreciated via the paypal

What is Plan9? Plan9 is a research operating system from Bell Labs that 
implements ideas from UNIX and new ideas.  In recent years, it has famously
been run on the LANL supercomputer where it achieved impressive benchmarks.  
Plan9 can be accessed via a terminal, but it is designed to be used via 
windowing GUI.  'drawterm' is the client you'll want to get and is available
for most desktop environments.

More details can be found here:  http://sdf.org/?tutorials/VPS_Plan9

This year we will focus on:

* installation from an ISO
* system configuration
* networked file sharing through 9p
* clustering
* communal computing 
* application development

[talk] Notes from this month's talk

Hi,

Here are notes on Urchin and on testing shell programs.
https://thomaslevine.com/!/unix-style-tests/
https://thomaslevine.com/!/shell-testing/

I built them into slides for the talk.
https://thomaslevine.com/!/unix-style-tests/slides.html
https://thomaslevine.com/!/shell-testing/slides.html

Here's a picture of me standing in front of a BSD sign in Sofia, Bulgaria.
https://thomaslevine.com/lib/2015-06-07-bsd.jpg

I demonstrated Urchin on this silly test suite.
http://tlevine.sdf.org/urchin/dir?ci=0ff4eca997aad383&name=example

You can download Urchin here.
http://tlevine.sdf.org/urchin/

Note that I mostly discussed the present unstable trunk version of
Urchin; go here documentation of the present release.
http://tlevine.sdf.org/urchin/artifact/c89ccfd84a2b3e85
http://tlevine.sdf.org/urchin/artifact/aaf84e84900065fb
http://tlevine.sdf.org/urchin/wiki?name=v0.1.0

In case anyone plays with it enough to have commentary, I am
presently considering whether the timeout feature (-T) is necessary and
whether there's a better approach for testing on multiple operating
systems (-r).

[talk] NYCBUG Tonight on Urchin: Unix-Style Tests

Wednesday, May 4
Urchin: Unix-style tests, Thomas Levine
18:45, Stone Creek Bar & Lounge: 140 E 27th St

Abstract

Urchin is a portable shell test harness based on the idea that a test
case should be an ordinary Unix-style program. It's called "Urchin"
because sea urchin shells are called "tests."

I'll discuss how one uses Urchin, and I'll show examples of tests
written in Urchin. Urchin is mostly (entirely?) used for running shell
tests to test shell programs, so I'll also compare it with other
approaches to testing shell programs.

Speaker Bio

Thomas Levine is a neodada artist with an interest in sleep. He enjoys
writing intuitive and minimal user interfaces, like Urchin, that are
thus easy to learn and easy to reverse-engineer.

You seem to be claiming a wizard, which I have no way of knowing or wanting.

Before you pass comment please answer the below questions that I had asked
in a very polite tone. Below Questions

[talk] A blog post on the BSD family of operating systems

Hello,
I put together a blog post to cover a talk I gave at the British
Computing Society last month about why *BSD would be an appropriate
choice in a hardware project to a group of open source hardware enthusiasts.


https://www.geeklan.co.uk/?p=2061

George suggested I should forward the link here. Apparently there are
folks who are i nto this sort of thing. :)

Hi All,

I am facing strange issues with 10.3 on AMD x64.
           1. WPA SUPPLICANT Doesn't seem to work, though on install
               or while administrating the system it does find the network.
               but gives errors, while wpa_supplicant command as the 
               Authentication timeout.
            2. This is with the boot/if grub is installed no Boot Loader is 
                installed in FreeBSD 10.3 Install.
