FreeBSD and Xen - status

  View Printable Version 
FreeBSDThe FreeBSD Quarterly Status Report for October through December 2007 has been released. The last entry in the report is about Xen:
The port will only run as a guest (i.e. domU) right now, on i386/PAE platforms.
Status:
  • domU is self-hosting on 8-CURRENT (can compile world + kernel in a VM).
  • Xen 3.0.3 and earlier are not supported.
  • Device structure needs to be cleaned up, it's not conformant to newbus.
  • SMP and amd64 are targeted for support by May for RELENG_6 and RELENG_7.
  • dom0 support is not currently on the roadmap.
Too bad that dom0 support isn't in the works, but it is hard without enough people to work on it.

  View Printable Version 
FreeBSDOSnews reports that FreeBSD 7.0-RC2 has been released. From the announcement:
We sincerely hope this will be the last of the public tests for 7.0 and that the -RELEASE builds will start in about a week and a half. If bug(s) considered big enough to be show-stoppers are found we will of course reconsider but hopefully we're in good enough shape now to proceed with the release.

ncid - Network Caller ID

  View Printable Version 
FreeBSDncid is Caller ID (CID) distributed over a network to a variety of devices and computers. It consists of a server that obtains the Caller ID information and then sends it to multiple clients. There is a FreeBSD port comms/ncid. Hmm, I wonder if this thing works with callid (misc/callid), which I have written about previously in ISDN and caller-id in FreeBSD?

FreeBSD 6.3 released

  View Printable Version 
FreeBSDaccording to OSnews, FreeBSD 6.3 has been released. I think they jump the gun a bit (since the announcement hasn't been sent out yet), but hey, I guess it is all about being first. Anyway, the release notes (i386) are available. At this point in time, it looks like mostly bug fixes. we'll see when the real announcement is sent out.
