If you have any subjects you want us to explore, or even just a good name... 2014-11-26 We've got a fun idea for the holidays this year: just like we ask during the interviews, we want to hear how all the viewers and listeners first got into BSD.
Email us your story, either written or a video version, and we'll read and play some of them for...
Since there usually aren't many updates between -release and -stable ports, you may want to save some time and just install everything from packages.
Be sure to check if there have been any fixes committed to the -stable branch that affect you, though.
Both their ports and package systems were originally taken from Free BSD, but have since changed quite a bit.
If you're familiar with the Free BSD versions, you'll notice a lot of similarities, but also some interesting differences.
This means that you can't get the latest version of a port if it's been committed to the -current tree but didn't make it in time for the release.
Do you know any reasons which would cause this sort of "error" with this particular installation? To get your initial copy of the ports tree, you can either download the -stable tree directly via CVS like so: # cd /usr # ftp BSD/`uname -r`/gz # ftp BSD/`uname -r`/SHA256# signify -C -p /etc/signify/openbsd-`uname -r | cut -c 1,3`-x SHA256gz Signature Verified gz: OK # tar xzf gz # rm gz SHA256# cd ports # cvs -d [email protected]:/cvs -q up -r OPENBSD_`uname -r | sed 's/\./_/'` -Pd Be sure to choose a mirror that's close to you for better speeds.Open BSD's -stable ports tree is frozen on a per-version basis, other than for security updates or important fixes.New discussion segment 2015-01-17 We're thinking about adding a new segment to the show where we discuss a topic that the listeners suggest.It's meant to be informative like a tutorial, but more of a "free discussion" format.
