raspberry pi 3 images?

Dear folks,

are there any raspberry pi 3 images out there?

I have checked wiki:

there is one for raspberry pi b

there are some for pi 2 but none for pi 3?  Does the pi 2 work on pi3?

Just as another data point, from a 9.3 system (if relevant), where the 
majority of pidfiles have no trailing newline; no obvious consistency:

root <at> x200:~ # sh -c 'for i in /var/run/*.pid ; do echo $i; hd $i; done'

ksh93, tmux, termcap problems


I seem to be having problems using ksh93 as my shell in tmux running on an
xterm. The problem being when my command is longer than one line. It just
executes the command when it hits the end of the line, instead of
getting the value of PS2 at the start of the next line and the command

I did a bit of grovelling around and I came across somebody who had a similar
problem with bash and tmux. (I don't think it was on FreeBSD though). Somebody
suggested it was a termcap problem.

Of course, when running tmux it sets TERM=screen

Anybody know how to fix this? TIA.

Suppose you want (for whatever reason) to see the Samba users as UNIX 
users: you'll put something like "passwd: files winbind" in 
AFAICT that's not going to work on the machine (phyisical, virtual, 
jail, etc...) where Samba is configured to be an AD DC (*).
I'm not sure why, I think it has something to do with the way winbindd 
works, which is different on the DC.

So I use a jail for the DC (where I'll have no need for UNIX users) and 
configure any other instance be a domain member.

(*) Notice "AD DC"; it will work on an NT DC.

The only nuisance is the need to use that jail for DNS.

backup packages and ports

Hi all, recently I have installed Virtualbox and gimp by pkg install command. Is there any way backup these
packages in a usb storage device or DVD which can be installed later without internet connection? One more
thing to ask that can I backup my kde desktop environment as it takes a lot of time to download and compileRegards Arnab

Samba on FreeBSD

I am contemplating creating a SAMBA-4.4 Domain Controller on
FreeBSD-10.3.  Has anyone here done this?  If anyone has, and would
care to share their experience with me I have a number of questions:

1. Is the SAMBA instance the only DC in your domain?

2. If the SAMBA service is not the only DC what OS's do the other DCs

3. Did you migrate from an existing MS based DC?

4. Did you run SAMBA as a jail or as a BHyve VM.  If either applies,
why one and not the other?

slightly OT hardware question

Does anyone onlist know of any small (RPi-ish), cheap boxen w/ 2 or more 
working RJ45 ports (100 Mbit is OK), FreeBSD or NetBSD compatible ? I 
would like to use them as a firewall & an asterisk box. I found Utilite, 
kinda pricey, also Banana-Pi R1 (5 ports, however apparently wired 
somewhat weirdly on the board, NetBSD networking doesn't work there last 
I looked). Anyone got a little beastie like this working ? TIA & have a 
good one.

Firefox still without sound

Hey everyone!

I just updated Firefox to the current 46.0.1 and I am still not getting any 
sound out of it (just tested youtube). With the update several other packages 
were updated too (including alsa), so it seems as if there has been some 
progress in terms of sound.

Using $SEARCHENGINE I could quickly see, that Firefox without sound after an 
update under FreeBSD is a (well) known issue. Strangely enough there does not 
really seem to be a solution out there that is easy to implement or put into 
the ports/packages.

What's going on there? Or have I just missed the memo about Firefox and the 
sound output?
