What about: TCP/IP v5? IPv5 does not exist yet, because i hate IPv6. Kurz gesacht, man könnte einen RFC für ein open source IPv5 stack "ankurbeln"? 😁 IPv6 stinks, und ich IPv4 war doch nur eine Notlösing bei DARPA, Pentagon, DoD und in-addr.ARPA Legacy. IPv5 solution: not IPv4: --> IPv5 could be: [
Schönen Tag noch,

Checking #ThinkPad X1 Carbon again.

- Gen 5 is well supported by #OpenBSD.

- Gen 6 has slightly better look and performance, but sometimes it hangs and can't be suspended/resumed.

Price and everything else is the same.

[poll]What would you choose?

Fixing bufferbloat on your home network with OpenBSD 6.2 or newer

My home network (which is also my work network) is a standard-issue Comcast cable hookup. In spite of a tolerable 120 megabits down, my experience of daily Internet use is regularly frustrating. Video…

The famous children's netbook has been taken out of retirement. It's now my #OpenBSD/i386 testing machine.

Help a developer out?

Die Veröffentlichung des jüngsten Spectre-NG-Bugs wurde hektisch vorgezogen, nachdem Theo de Raadt die Informationspolitik von Intel kritisierte. #Intel #LinuxundOpenSource #OpenBSD #Sicherheit #Sicherheitslücken #Spectre-NG

Just sent out a diff which implements monitor mode support in the #iwm driver on #OpenBSD:


Another department was getting rid of a couple old XServes. They said they were PowerPC, so I was excited and was going to see if the #OpenBSD folks could use them.

Looked up the specs based on serial numbers, and both are Xeon(Intel).

Oh well.

I'm impressed by #OpenBSD's rc.
The documentation is top-notch, it's simple yet powerful and, if you have to read them or if you're curious, the underlying scripts are understandable if you have basic shell scripting skills.

Essentially, using (certain) Intel CPU features may result in unexpected behavior. If your OS is affected, update. #OpenBSD is not.

p.s. :D

Ingo Schwarze of #OpenBSD #mandoc renown has a new Patreon! HT @romanzolotarev

@thfr Updates for the #OpenBSD engine available mix descriptions:
1. freespace2 has been committed to CVS (fs2open)
2. Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy has been committed to CVS (openjk)
3. Barony works, almost in CVS (barony)
4. Arx Libertatis is almost in CVS (arx-libertatis)
5. Postal has a PKGNAME of postal
6. Cannon Fodder has been committed to CVS (openfodder)
7. Cannon Fodder 2 can also be played via openfodder

For some reason I have to run nginx on debian. And I want a letsencrypt cert on it. And certbot failed me.

So I do what every normal person would do: proxy_pass the challenge directory to an #openbsd box with httpd(8) and acme-client(1). The renewed cert gets scp(1)'ed to the debian box and a ssh(1) force command restarts nginx.

OK, so I have one serious gripe about the new "rcctl" stuff in #OpenBSD: it turns a well-formatted, well-commented rc.conf.local into a mess.

If you use rcctl enable/disable then it moves all the entries in the file around.

"I have a problem with this"™

For anyone seeing "heap full" messages on #OpenBSD -current, there's an issue with the early firmware loading in boot(8) for certain large Intel firmware, there's a commit to disable it for now.. but as a temporary workaround, you can boot from USB and move the firmware out of the way in /etc/firmware.

Become a port maintainer on #OpenBSD. Submitting patches to -current will keep your cvs skills fresh. ;-)

So, I am not the only one who got hit by the surprise "early" release of #OpenBSD 6.3 :)

m:tier has not yet prepared 6.3 packages and running openup breaks because it cannot find m:tier's signify key on their servers (ain't there folks…).

Not to worry, as I paid up for a Platinum contract I got to open a ticket and politely ask: they're working on it!

Sadly more than a few great talks from #BSDCan 2017 flew under the radar, worth checking them out if you haven't already! #BSD #OpenBSD

So (BCHS: BSD, C, httpd, SQLite web app stack) has gotten a bit of a "nerd chic" make-over. Any constructive criticism? #bchs #openbsd

A back-burner project was a new deploy of roundcubemail. So I upgraded the VM to #OpenBSD 6.3. Did a pkg_add -u... and PHP 5.6 is still there. I look into it and the roundcubemail package still depends on 5.6. Dig further and it depends on 5.6 because 5.6 is the default version of PHP for dependencies.


It's not as bad as I thought, since 5.6 gets security updates through the end of the year, but I'm wondering how many ports still *need* 5.6.

Another shoutout for upobsd by @semarie.

Allows automatic upgrades and installs for #OpenBSD.

My serial console server is CompactFlash based and is (for obvious reasons) the one I cannot watch remotely. I usually have a long wait for upgrades since the CF is so slow.

Yesterday I used upobsd to do the main upgrade part unattended. It was *lovely*.

It's a package for 6.3. You can use it on a 6.3 box to make your bsd.rd and copy it to the 6.2 server in question.

Join me now in testing awesome #FNA #indie #games to make sure they run well on #OpenBSD -current:

I didn't get much done this release cycle, but congrats to my fellow #OpenBSD developers on all their hard work, 6.3 looks to be an excellent release! 😀

Look at that, #OpenBSD 6.3 has been released!

Highlights include massive improvement in support for #armv7/#arm64 platforms, #vmm virtualization on #amd64/#i386 platforms, #wifi (including roaming), more of the network stack is unlocked, and no artificial limits in #IPv6 autoconfiguration.

Martin Pieuchot (mpi@) briefly wrote about an upcoming feature in #OpenBSD 6.3: "Dumping your USB"

Has any #OpenBSD user thought about applying #pledge to #postgres?

That seems like something that would be pretty helpful.


As we're working on the the release notes for the upcoming #OpenBSD 6.3 release, here's another check of the signify keys.

I've compared them against the original source.

untrusted comment: openbsd 6.3 base public key

#OpenBSD is in the process of finishing up our 6.3 release.

How does that work? Here are slides that Theo presented at AsiaBSDCon 2009 describing our release cycles and process.

#Welcome! Have an #introduction from

#UNIX user since late 80s, #FreeBSD #OpenBSD #NetBSD #sysadmin since mid-90s.

I pay the mortgage by #writing. 30-odd books plus shorts.

Best known work? My satirical #Linux erotica, #SavagedBySystemd

Novels? Best known are "Immortal Clay" and "git commit murder."

Tech books? "Absolute OpenBSD," "SSH Mastery," "FreeBSD Mastery: ZFS," "Networking for System Administrators."

and if you want to upgrade your #OpenBSD -current using sysutils/upobsd (and you are using latest snapshot), you want to add "-V snapshots".

$ upobsd -V snapshots
$ doas cp bsd.rd /bsd
$ doas reboot

Cc @kurtm

For the record, if one is trying to update packages with pkg_add -u on an #OpenBSD -CURRENT box right now, you want to add "-D snap".


pkg_add -D snap -u

This comes up so seldom I just did the computing equivalent of stepping on rakes for a bit.
