I had played around with several Unix-like systems, like MINIX & Coherent, but mostly used DOS/Win at home. I had some early exposure to QNX at school thanks to the Ministry of Educations commissioning the "Unisys/Burroughs ICON" computer.
I installed NetBSD after recommendation from a friend I met online, used it briefly to run an IRC and home web server. I don't remember what problem I had now, but I ended up installing OpenBSD and becoming familiar with both the system & community. #bsdstart
There is a meltdown patch in the snapshots. If you were holding out, testing -current now might be a good time try, you may help find problems. #OpenBSD
I got the #athn wifi driver fully working with the open source version of the firmware, now also with AR7010 devices. In fact, it seems to work better now than it ever did 🤗
USBPcap bpf(4) support added to #OpenBSD's kernel/tcpdump(8): https://marc.info/?l=openbsd-cvs&m=151766506417307&w=2 https://marc.info/?l=openbsd-cvs&m=151766521117367&w=2
I'm Bryan, Canadian. I enjoy romantic walks to my refrigerator, eating pizza and occasionally hacking on #OpenBSD.
My cat likes to be smacked around a bit-- I feel like I've been unwittingly contributing to its abuse fetishism or something.
The #OpenBSD Foundation's supported activities in 2017 & 2018 Fundraising Campaign pages are live. Also the total from smaller donors has already cracked Bronze! 🐡🏆
kqueue(2): "To effect a poll, the timeout argument should be non-null, pointing to a zero-valued timespec structure."
Hmm, well that's handy, poll on non-blocking kqueue fd.
Time to say more about my #crafts adventures :) Meet #OpenBSD puffy 🐡 @mulander request ;>
"""add kqueue support to drm(4) by making the drm_sysfs_hotplug_event() available on OpenBSD well and by notifying listeners of a device state change using EVFILT_DEVICE and NOTE_CHANGE.
drm_sysfs_hotplug_event() gets called when a state change of the device occured, like an hdmi cable has been plugged, this in the future will be used by the modesetting xorg driver to notify desktop environments via randr events to update their screen configuration"""
