Catch-up


I’ll try to run through all the events that came through in the past few days.

- David Rhodus reports over 1000 iso downloads on dbsd.catpa.com, while Simon ‘corecode’ Schubert reports (since logging started) 129 unique downloads.

- David P. Reese Jr. has set up various split syscalls and set the linuxulator to use them.

- Matt Dillon pointed out the right name for this new OS is ‘DragonFly’, with the F capitalized. He also suggested starting a new ports (/usr/dports) system that would work as an ‘override’ to the carried-over FreeBSD ports system.

- There was some discussion of slogans for DragonFly, of which my favorite was David Leimbach’s “DragonFlyBSD: We’ve raised our standards… so up yours!”

- Robert Garrett brought rsync into the base system. Also, David Rhodus set up a cvsync server that carries both FreeBSD and DragonFly. (his config continued below.)

Here’s a paste of David Rhodus’s cvsync conf file.

% cat /usr/local/etc/cvsync.conf
#
# The sample of cvsync configuration file.
#
config {
hostname 64.191.136.10
port 7777 # default value

#
# name: case-insensitive
# release: case-insensitive: ‘rcs’ or ‘list’
#
collection {
name all # ‘all’ or ‘rcs’
release list
}
}
config {
hostname 64.191.136.10

#
# prefix: absolute path
#
collection {
name freebsd release rcs
prefix /home/FreeBSD
}
collection {
name dragonflybsd release rcs
prefix /home/dbsd
}
}
