"Most software expects to find certificates in /etc/ssl/certs. OpenSSL expects to find them in a certs subdirectory of the system OpenSSL directory (available by running openssl version -a). FreeBSD considers the trust anchors add-on material, and so puts them under /usr/local. Everybody resolves these conflicts by liberally applying symlinks until the complaints stop." - #tlsmastery
I am trying to get vger running on my VPS, so that I can host my own Gemini capsule.
I've followed all the steps involved on https://tildegit.org/solene/vger and created /var/gemini
relayd was not starting, so I created symlinks e.g. gemini.samebchase.com:1965.crt
I saw a part where it says ensure that TCP port is opened on the firewall, so I added the line:
pass in on egress proto tcp from any to egress port 1965
to pf.conf and flush all
Anything else I could try?
- it's easy to use, programs are small
- less code, less error
- it's reliable
- inetd does networking better than I do
- program will feature extremely tight pledge/unveil until a final exec to transform into pfctl
Last year, we spent 51 days at sea during the passage from Japan to Canada, it was the hardest thing we had ever done. We kept a physical logbook of daily happenings onboard. This is that logbook, revised, and with a ton of extra notes.
@ReverendLinc I've tried FreeBSD and NetBSD and, while I like them a lot, #OpenBSD just has this aesthetic, especially in its design. Everything seems well thought out (just look at ifconfig and how easy it is to configure wireless, for example). It may not be as fast as FreeBSD or even Linux, but it's still pretty fast IMO. Everything about it just screams "clean" to me. 🐡 #runbsd
In the last month I have deleted my WhatsApp, Instagram and Birdsite accounts.
On the day when I was contemplating deleting all these, I felt a sort of panicky feeling about how I will survive without those things.
That's the point at which I felt that deleting them would be good because it was scary to imagine not being on them, and that level of dependence on can't be a good thing.
Hello there, fellow SSB-ers on Mastodon,
I'm having a little bit of an issue getting Oasis built on #OpenBSD. Mainly the problem is that the libvips version in the packages and ports is too old for Oasis, so I tried building libvips myself.
Ran into some compilation issues, and filed an issue in Github, but there's no response so far. https://github.com/libvips/libvips/issues/1981
If any #OpenBSD user has got any ideas about what I can try next, that will be amazing.

My Raku Advent Calendar article is out!
Parsing Clojure namespace forms using Raku grammars.
In this article, we explore how Raku grammars can be a useful tool in tackling parsing tasks.
Had a great time writing this article. I hope you enjoy reading it as well.
I just posted the first entry in the 2020 Raku Advent Calendar. It's about what makes #raku such a great language to use for Advent of Code puzzles: https://raku-advent.blog/2020/12/01/day-1-why-raku-is-ideal-for-advent-of-code/
If anyone gets inspired to try out #raku after reading the post, I've also created a git repo to host Raku AoC solutions (with "getting started" resources in the README) https://github.com/codesections/advent-of-raku-2020
