How to run a FreeBSD Virtual Machine on the RPI4 with QEMU. Part 1: QEMU setup

stafwag.github.io/blog/blog/20

I got a Raspberry PI 4 a couple of months back and started it use it to run virtual machines.

This works great for GNU/Linux distributions but FreeBSD as a virtual machine didn’t work for me. When I tried to install FreeBSD or import a virtual machine image,

Today someone mentioned creating a cron job. That reminded me of:

* when thinking crontab, consider periodic
* when thinking mkdir, consider zfs create

OpenVAS on Kali GNU/Linux Part 1: How to install OpenVAS

OpenVAS is an opensource security scanner it started as a fork of Nessus which went from an opensource project to a closed source scanner.

I always prefer opensource software, for security tools, I even prefer it more… It nice to see/audit where the security data comes from, instead of the “magic” that is used by the close source software.

So... the EU considers DNS critical infrastructure. So far so good.
"As a consequence of this directive’s quite broad definition of DNS, every organisation or individual running their own DNS will have to comply by registering their DNS service with ENISA, the EU agency for Cyber Security."

I was gifted some neat old books today. Should keep me occupied for a few years. At this rate my understanding of computers might make it to the 1990s before I'm 100 years old.

I find this an interesting and understandable read about how the #covid-19 #vaccine works.

Reverse Engineering the source code of the BioNTech/Pfizer #SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine.

32 bits (still) matters!

stafwag.github.io/blog/blog/20

I used OPNsense on my pcengines Alix 2d13 firewall.

The Alix 2d13 is a nice motherboard with a Geode CPU 32 bits x86 CPU.

I migrated to OPNsense after pfSense dropped support for 32 bits. Unfortunately, OPNsense also dropped support for 32 bits CPUs in the 19.1.7 release. I decided to install FreeBSD on my Alix to use it as my firewall.

Upgrade FreeBSD on a Raspberry Pi 2

stafwag.github.io/blog/blog/20

I recently installed FreeBSD on my raspberry-pi 2 to use it as my firewall.

The FreeBSD version that I installed was a FreeBSD 12.2 Pre-Release. FreeBSD 12.2 has been released this week.

So I was looking for a way to update my Raspberry Pi to FreeBSD 12.2.
