[talk] Me on BSDTalk

I know it's generally bad form to promote oneself, but I recently sat
down with Will Backman of BSDTalk about some of the non-{NYC*,CD}BUG
stuff I do, specifically the devio.us shell server, of which I am one of
the admins.

[talk] USB Wireless Recommendations


Hello gang,

I'm looking for recommendations for reliable USB wireless
adapters that work with FreeBSD.  I've bought several
that don't work (apparently no driver support) and before
I shell out more cash I figured someone on this list
will know.

Any advice much appreciated!

[talk] Macbook Pro Screen Replacement

All
 My trusty old 2011 MBP's screen was smashed this week. I want to swap
in a new LCD, however I wanted to know if anyone had done this before
and how it was. Also does anyone know if I can swap a 1440x900 screen
for a 1680x1050 screen ? They are the same size 15" and the 1680x1050
was an upgrade for this model ? I cant find anything that says yes or no .

[talk] Fwd: freebsd/Crochet

Crochet is now an official FreeBSD project.. really a well-done platform
for building images, aimed initially just at ARM but it expanded.

g

-------- Forwarded Message --------
Subject: freebsd/Crochet
Date: Wed, 4 Mar 2015 20:57:43 -0800
From: Tim Kientzle <t
To: freebsd-arm <freebsd-arm <at> freebsd.org>

I am very happy to announce that the Crochet project has officially
moved from my
personal account to the FreeBSD project account on github.  It can now
be found at:

   https://github.com/freebsd/crochet <https://github.com/freebsd/crochet>

In particular, this means that a larger group of freebsd developers are
now participating
in ongoing Crochet development.

Practically speaking, github will redirect old URLs to the new location
and the move
should be transparent to existing Crochet users and contributors.

For those unfamiliar, Crochet is a tool for generating runnable system
images of
FreeBSD.  It was originally developed in mid-2012 for building
BeagleBone images and
has since expanded with support for many other ARM boards, as well as
Generic i386
and VMWare images.  It is similar in many respects to nanobsd, but has
more of a
focus on cross-building and supporting a variety of boot systems.
(Although I don’t
recommend it as a regular practice, I have confirmed that Crochet can
cross-build
runnable VMWare i386 images from a BeagleBone. ;-)

Best to all,

Tim

[talk] call for Tor buildbot slaves

Someone from the Tor-BSD list (on this server) setup an unofficial BSD
Buildbot for Tor located at 81.7.14.172.

There's just under ten boxes listed, and there's some git activity
happening.

If you're running a Tor relay or bridge, and are interested in helping
to participate, the instructions for each of the BSDs are listed.

[talk] Old style packages (with compat) on FreeBSD 10?

Ok, guys I’ve been out of commission and was at school for bioinformatics, so I am just getting back into
this, so if this is an obvious question…. please just point me to the correct place.

I am trying to put splunk on a freebsd 10 box - but the package is an old format package (and worse its for
FreeBSD 7).

So question, is there a way to install old format packages using pkgng, OR is there a better alternative to
splunk that is free?

I shouldn’t have to wrestle with this stuff - lol - not after 20 years :) Thanks for the patience, I figure
the fastest answer will come here...

-Trish
