FreeBSD: ISO image with ZFS v28

  View Printable Version 
FreeBSDSo, you have a non-working zfs installation, and think that ZFS v28 might help you recover it? Then you need to install FreeBSD 9.x (AKA -current), right? No, you can also use the mfsBSD ISO mages generated by Martin Matuska, which are FreeBSD 8.2-release with ZFS v28 (there are more images on that page). Martin Matuska also provide the build instructions and the script to build these images. Very, very cool.

PXE Booting Utilities With FreeBSD

  View Printable Version 
FreeBSDA new article by Warren Block: PXE Booting Utilities With FreeBSD. From the introduction: "Numerous useful utilities like Clonezilla, HDT, and FreeBSD’s "memstick" are available as bootable images. A PXE boot server can make these utilities more convenient and accessible. With PXE, no external media is needed, just boot the target computer from the network. We will set up all of the components necessary to provide PXE booting to any computer networked with the FreeBSD server. Instead of simply booting a single install CD image, this setup will boot into a menu with multiple utilities.". Very Nice!
