So unfortunately 17 has hit , which means I need to turn off support for the full LLVM suite in on

We offered to provide build hosts and maintain support, but upstream weren't interested, and removed all of the code.

Given it was working absolutely fine, this is a real shame. Especially as I spent a significant chunk of time getting it working.

It'll now have to go back to depending on GCC's libstdc++, and I'll work on avoiding dependencies on clang where I can.

⚠️ Weekly Meeting ⚠️

Our first weekly will start on the 25th, April 2024 at 7 PM (GMT+2).

You can find all the details on the wiki:
https://wiki.bsd.cafe/docs:weekly-bsdpub

For the first one, I already created a small agenda (https://wiki.bsd.cafe/docs:weekly-bsdpub-meeting-minutes-2024-04-25). You are highly encouraged to modify and extend this, as well as upcoming agendas!

Overview:
Day: Thursdays (weekly)
Time: 7 PM - 8 PM (GMT +2)
Where: https://meet.gyptazy.ch/BSDPub (Jitsi)
Infos: https://wiki.bsd.cafe/docs:weekly-bsdpub
Agenda: https://wiki.bsd.cafe/docs:weekly-bsdpub-meeting-minutes-2024-04-25
Info: No recordings, no deep tech dives (keep it simple, we have calls for the details, no pressures to anyone, have fun and enjoy)

When I started the poll to ask for interests in such a meeting I wasn’t sure that even more than 5 people would be interested. I’m happy to see this amount of interested BSD users. I’m aware of the different timezones and it might make sense to have a second timeslot. This one mostly covers the European and near-east users. I’m happy to hear suggestions regarding preferred timeslots for the US, Asia,… so far, I’m happy to see at least a few of you next Thursday in the call!

Long post

wow, we already have almost 50 people interested into a weekly meeting. In the BSDCafe we already thought about possible dates and additional organization.

Different timezones make it really hard to just have a single meeting and it might end up in two or even three ones but also trying to avoid fragmentation. But this will probably work out more in an iterative way…

The current idea is to start Thursdays, 7pm GMT+2 in an unmoderated public jitsi session where everyone can join. I think the targeted user group is able to handle it in that way, like we always do.

The question is also, do we want to have an agenda or only open minded jump in and see how it works out?! My experience is, that people might be shy to start talking, it’ll be silent and people start to drop’s drop. An agenda might be helpful for an initial start but I also want to avoid having an introduction round where everyone tells something about himself. I mean, this can be done optionally, but I’m also aware of it that some may feel uncomfortable with this. This round should just make fun and not make any pressure or someone feeling uncomfortable.

So, agenda or open minded and free to talk for the first sessions?

⚠️ The BSD Pub ⚠️

Hey Fans!

We all share the same interests - based systems like , and .

We chat all day, sharing thoughts, questions and help. We talk on Matrix across different channels, we share on the . We have @vermaden@bsd.cafe's newsletter, we have @dexter@bsd.network's and calls and many other ones I can't list here.

Wondering if there would be and interests in the , , etc., for a weekly smalltalk session like in a pub. Just a Jitsi based video/audio call where we can meet, discuss things from newsletter, trending things from the or just have off-topic and openminded discussions. This could result into the meeting.

I know, some people are shy - keep your cam off until you feel comfortable and feel free to join the discussions. Even this meetings should make fun and no pressure - so if someone is not in the mood or can't make it - no worries. No one will judge.

Would you be interested?

Trying to get past the containerd/console blocker on illumos.

Brief history: they removed Solaris support, breaking software like minio which has an indirect dependency on it.

First up is the simple fix in github.com/containerd/console/ for which I'm hoping they can have no complaints.

Secondly is github.com/jperkin/console/com which implements native illumos support, but doesn't work due to pty ioctl differences.

If I've misunderstood the ioctl issue please let me know!

If anyone wants to get involved in development this is a really good way to help out.

Just those 9 fixes should result in a few hundred extra packages being available for users, as they were in the list of top affected dependencies.

It's easy to get started, there's lots of low-hanging fruit, and it's satisfying when you fix something that was previously broken and unavailable.
