June 2013 BAFUG

Hacker Dojo again; reminder: location is now:

599 Fairchild Dr
Mountain View, CA 94043

If you're on VTA Light Rail from Mountain View, after departing the Middlefield stop, the building where Hacker Dojo is is the last one to the east of the Light Rail tracks before you cross under the Bayshore freeway.  Here's a link to a page with more information: or a link directly to Google Maps:,-122.049866&spn=0.032319,0.032272&hnear=599+Fairchild+Dr,+Mountain+View,+Santa+Clara,+California+94043&gl=us&t=h&z=15 Google Maps suggests exiting VTA Light Rail at the Bayshore/NASA station, then walking over to Ellis, under the Baayshore freeway, then turn left at Fairchild.

We will be in the "Classroom"; there are maps posted within the Dojo itself.  I strongly suggest that you arrive 10 - 15 minutes early in order to get oriented.

Please note that there are two parking lots (one rather small), but each is reserved specifically for Hacker Dojo -- no more sharing parking with other concerns.

The meeting (proper) starts at 7:00 PM (1900 hrs. local); expect to be kicked out by 10:00 PM (2200 hrs. local).

FreeBSD stuff:

8.4 (which is the end of the line for 8.x) is RELEASEd.

It appears that release/9.1.0 (and thus, releng/9.1) are rather far behind stable/9 -- indeed, they are rather far behind stable/9 as of the branch point.  (In particular, r243534 (MFC of r242922) is not in release/9.1.0 or releng/9.1.).  Log entry:

r243534 | sbruno |[masked]:57:22 -0800 (Sun, 25 Nov 2012) | 7 lines


Update MAX_TASKS to scale a bit based on MAXCPU

This alleviates issues on newer Sandy/Ivy Bridge gear that seems to require
boatloads more ACPI resources than before.


We may have a few words from one (or more) of the cluster admins about what's been going on there.  As you might know, several of the machines are running head now. :-}
