Presentations on OpenBSD Ports and More

Joe Stevensen sent word of two new OpenBSD presentations. The first is OpenBSD Ports and Packages, by Marc Espie. He takes some shots at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r BSDs, including FreeBSD. He's wrong about Python being needed to update FreeBSD ports. An article I wrote for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 February 2006 Sys Admin magazine on keeping FreeBSD up-to-date doesn't use any Python, but it does require Ruby and Perl.

I do agree with some of Marc's critique, however. It would be nice to have package update tools built into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 base system. Perhaps cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y could be written in Perl to avoid adding Ruby? We are starting to see new ports tools developed outside of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 base now being added to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 base, with Colin Percival's portsnap now in FreeBSD 6.0. I expect to see this trend continue because Colin is a member of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 FreeBSD project now. (He's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 security officer.)

The second presentation is OpenBSD Networking Update by Henning Brauer. OpenBSD is doing some cool work with OpenBGPD and I see now that OpenOSPFD is planned as well.

FYI, a FreeBSD developer (sorry, I can't remember who, but he is usually on efnet #bsdports) is working on rewriting portupgrade as a shell script, and I'm sure this will end up in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 base system.

OSPF has been available on OpenBSD since release 3.7 (http://www.openbsd.org/plus37.html). 3.8 has a lot of fixes/improvements on ospf.

Cheers,

Hopefully a long-term solution to patching cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 base system will also be addressed. NFS mounts to patch multiple machines (especially over a WAN) leaves something to be desired. Couldn't this be rolled into a distributable package somehow?

I should have mentioned that I like cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ability to create packages without installing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m in OpenBSD.
