Verdict: Creating jails now worked with Ansible/iocage. We didn't manage to get networking to work at all, no matter whether shared IP or VNAT. (Compiled our own kernel for VIMAGE.)
Anyone know if Ansible ezjail-admin(8) integration works any better? Or is the only working way to manage jails with Ansible to write jails.conf files?
Is it that I just don't know enough about FreeBSD/jails/tech yet?
Today, I rebuilt my ARM #FreeBSD #poudriere jail with the "-x" flag https://github.com/freebsd/poudriere/commit/f2177f6a118092e6f576a0280f54e1193cb6bf90
It was introduced 4 years ago but I was not aware of it until bapt@ or manu@ told me about it at #bsdcan.
Package building time comparison, (before → after):
pkg: 00:34:16 → 00:02:57
sqlite3: 00:54:17 → 00:05:38
perl: 03:43:08 → 00:52:23
openssl: 04:45:02 → 00:22:19
ruby: 06:45:40 → 00:10:38
Building all packages of an appliance took more than one day, and is not bellow one hour and a half.
zcage is a new zone manager for #Illumos distributions inspired by FreeBSD's iocage(8) and SmartOS's vmadm(1M).
OCCRP's @rysiek is in the Europarliament today, informing the MEPs of OCCRP's concerns about Article 11 of the proposed Copyright Directive:
Regular reminder that if you use #OpenBSD, a great help to developers is to send your machines' dmesg outputs to dmesg <AT> openbsd.org.
If you'd like to help other *BSD users, regardless of what *BSD you use, submit your machines' dmesg outputs to http://dmesgd.nycbug.org/
It's free to do, and works best when we all chip in!
#EuroBSDCon presentation deadline is coming up on Sunday! Do you do cool stuff with #OpenBSD, #FreeBSD, #NetBSD (or any #BSD)? PS, yes you do. You should submit an abstract for a 45 minute presentation, and give a talk.
Travel, hotel, and entry will be covered for selected speakers!
hey all, I have been pouring through (and loving) the #FreeBSD handbook, faqs, old message threads, etc. I have also purchased a copy of The Design and Implementation of the 4.4 BSD Operating System.
But with all the excellent documentation, books, videos, etc out there I wanted to ask y'all for some recommendations!
What are your favorite resources? What books stick out to as critical in your BSD adventures?
Curr reading up on jails and using ansible to automate my sys config. So happy :)
Launching https://www.BSDjobs.com (with a job post from Reyk Flöter!)
I’ve just launched the site and—what a coincidence—Reyk Flöter has started looking for a developer for a new project (in Zurich, non-remote). Please contact Reyk, if you’re available or can recommend a friend.
If you are using a #lasercutter with a #K40 controller inside then you might want to check out #K40Whisperer, which is an alternative to the the Laser Draw (#LaserDRW) program that comes with the cheap Chinese #laser #cutters. K40 Whisperer reads SVG and DXF files, interprets the data and sends commands to the K40 controller to move the laser head and control the laser accordingly.
NB: a #FreeBSD port is awaiting approval: https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=228466
