Come and catch up

Come to learn and share, and meet fellow BSD'ers

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: http://wiki.hackerdojo.com/w/page/25425/Directions or a link directly to Google Maps: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=599+fairchild+drive&ll=37.402926,-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 Bayshore 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 if you haven't been there before.


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.  On the other hand, there may be other, larger, meetings at Hacker Dojo.  So there is some practical value in reducing one's need to find a parking space.

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 was released.  We're entering feature freeze/code slush for 9.2 in a couple days.

It seems that KDE3 is being removed from the ports tree, which apparently affects a lot of other ports, and also affects a lot of people.  (I try to avoid KDE, myself.)

The Subversion port is now at 1.8 -- and in head, there is a construct called "svnlite" (yes, in base FreeBSD).  It is generally usable for the simple, straightforward things (checkout, update, patch, diff, log; svnsync -- though I haven't actually tried that myself).  It's missing the bindings for things like Perl & Python.

David has started recording the "uname -vp" output on an assortment of his personal machines when he updates them successfully.  There's a description & pointers to copies of the logfiles at http://www.catwhisker.org/~david/FreeBSD/history/

We may have a few words from one (or more) of the FreeBSD.org cluster admins about what's been going on there.  As you might know, several of the machines are running head now. :-}  And Peter (in particular) has been pushing to do cluster-wide refreshes generally on the first weekend of every month.

iXsystems may have something to mention during the meeting.
