's tar(1) utility now uses the 'pax' format when creating archives vs. 'ustar'.

It is possible to select the format using the new '-F' option, e.g: tar -F ustar ... to fallback to creating ustar.

jca@ modified src/bin/pax/*: Switch tar(1) write default format to 'pax'

Lets us store longer file names, link names, finer grained timestamps, larger archive member files, etc; at the expense of larger uncompressed archives and less widespread support across the ecosystem. If you're unhappy with the new defaults, you can use -F ustar. Or you can help fix bugs / find a better middle ground.

It doesn't have many of the fancy features of Mastodon, but is a bright example of how a super-minimal system can do the job *very* well. It'll also work with your mobile Mastodon apps and small browsers like Dillo[3].

It runs on OpenBSD and we accept a few more testers. There is no automatic sign-up, so if you are interested, DM me with the desired account name and I'll send you the credentials.

tl;dr: No more usb drives needed

In addition to m1n1 and uboot, my new target also installs the OpenBSD boot loader and an installer ramdisk to the ESP. Thanks to some recent work from dlg@ and kettenis@ [2][3] the boot loader supports loading the ramdisk automatically if no OpenBSD disklabel is found on disk. This allows us to skip the manual usb installation step from [4] and boot right to the installer on first boot.

Hey fans!
I'm going to give or a try! I don't know much about BSD, let me know if there are things I should know beforehand.
How close is it to Linux? Is it like Linux at all? Should I try FreeBSD or OpenBSD? Maybe there are some other versions of BSD I don't know about. Let me know!

david_chisnall »
@david_chisnall@infosec.exchange

@Neznak I have an obvious bias towards FreeBSD. All of the major BSDs (excluding macOS) have similar management interfaces and packaging systems. They have a common ancestor, but diverged a lot over the last 30ish years. Some things are periodically shared between them.

I would be remiss to not point out as the third large one and as the fourth.

I ran on a PowerPC Mac for a while and found it very easy to learn coming from . As @tulpa says, remember that these are all distinct systems, not just distributions packaging the same set of things slightly differently. NetBSD and FreeBSD both branched from 4.3BSD Net/2 (FreeBSD via 386BSD). OpenBSD forked from NetBSD 1.1, Dragonfly from FreeBSD 4.8 - both have now had decades of independent development (or, as independent as permissively licensed open source projects ever are - a lot of people contribute to more than one and code flows in all directions).

The things that keep me on FreeBSD are:

  • ZFS supported out of the box, from the installer onwards.
  • Jails (and support for OCI containers via Podman).
  • Capsicum as the cleanest way of developing compartmentalised applications on any system.
  • pkg for binary packages and Poudriere for building binary packages (each port is built in a clean jail).

I also use pf (originally from OpenBSD, now ported elsewhere), though NetBSD's npf looks interesting.

@ParadeGrotesque@mastodon.sdf.org

Here is the thing with : I like it, I really do, but it's the ton of little infuriating details that bug me.

Take a look at the 2nd screenshot: you will see NetBSD tries an ipv6 address before switching back to ipv4 once it hits a timeout.

Which is fine, except there is no obvious way to disable ipv6 anywhere in NetBSD. And I have searched for a solution!

Conversely, is as smooth as a cold glass of water in a heatwave. DHCP does not provide ipv6? Disable it!

Parade du Grotesque 💀 »
@ParadeGrotesque@mastodon.sdf.org

I mean, it's right there in the ifconfig man page, while there is no such entry in the corresponding page (again, unless I am mistaken, corrections by smarter people are very welcome)

man.openbsd.org/ifconfig

The result is that, on an ipv4 only network, all the utilities will keep on timing out trying ipv6 addresses first.

This being said, I don't want to write a self-service portal for the web and thought about a service where you just login and can perform several actions like PTR, snapshots, system reset etc.

Currently, I only implemented the user management from an "admin" perspective. A sandbox style can be seen here:

ssh -p 2222 boxybsd@2001:470:54d7:1337::2
Password: create

It's a self-written sshd alike service which communicates with the API and some other bins. Die user login can be done by pub key and pw auth. Feel free to give it a try, it's a sandbox mode on a sandbox vm.

I know I'm being selfish, but hey, it's Friday and 7.5 has been released with
"Support for SAS3816 and SAS3916 in mfii(4)"

Thanks to everyone involved in this release!

@solene I want to spin up 10 on a spare laptop I have, but now I'm tempted to check out instead. What a problem to have

Some for the imminent 7.5 release!

  • Jonathon Gray (jsg@) has updated the drm graphics drivers (inteldrm/radeondrm/amdgpu) in 7.5 to Linux 6.6.19, from 6.1.y/6.1.70, along with Mesa to 23.1.9.
  • Mark Kettenis' added the apldcp(4) and apldrm(4) drivers from Asahi Linux, to support the display controllers in Apple Silicon Macs, allowing proper display modesetting, HDMI & brightness control.
  • Indirect syscall(2) completely removed, replacing with calls to corresponding libc stubs, or fancy syscall dispatchers as was done for base Perl by afresh1@.
  • Precise syscall pinning w/ pinsyscalls(2).
  • Stefan Sperling (stsp@) added qwx(4), a port of the Linux ath11k driver for QCNFA765 devices, for arm64 (e.g: ThinkPad x13s) and amd64.

..and lots more!

With the release of 7.5 just around the corner, I plan to write up a "from scratch" install process on my X220.

It will be based off my existing Open Suck[1] installer, which defaults to mostly software with as the main DE.

Plus I need to do this soon, before 7.5 is released, ot I will have to do all the updates at the same time...

Every time I visit Nextcloud's documentation, I get the impression of being a second-class citizen, always worried that with each new version, this project will turn into a farm of dockerized images.

Warning
Nextcloud does not have official OpenBSD or other BSDs support

Just put in my order for an 7.4 T-shirt before 7.5 is officially released. Then, to save money for a T-shirt for that release!

It's official: the new email hosting service I'll be launching will run on OpenBSD as well. The two OpenSMTPD SMTP servers will operate on two OpenBSD installations.

@woozong I have run it on an x13 2nd gen just fine, which is pretty similar hardware. But pretty much any mainline (T or X) Thinkpad without NVIDIA, and preferably with Intel NICs is going to do well with . Bluetooth isn’t in OpenBSD, most (maybe all) fingerprint readers won’t work.

Is there anything in particular you are curious about or trying to accomplish?

Oh look! My favorite Mastodon host is back online!

That's reason to say Hey! The @bsdcan planning team has some amazing sponsors lined up but we'd appreciate another Bronze or two, and would flip for another Silver.

The schedule is awesome and I hope to see you there.

Could you please nudge your team about a sponsorship?

Thank you!

Please RT!

Uncommenting the "block in all", sending a pfctl -f /etc/pf.conf - noting in that precise moment that I didn't explicitly pass ssh - being closed out of my own server...done! ✅

@mattdm @stsp @passthejoe From my perspective, as an user and maintainer of a single port, the software is not in the base OS, so is of little concern to the core developers. The port maintainer was on top of the issue, reviewed it and found it couldn’t affect OpenBSD, plus had only submitted a patch to upgrade to the affected versions which had not yet been merged so wasn’t available as a package to any other developers or users.
