BSD 10/2013 epub version
FreeBSD Moves to Subversion
FreeBSD users are accustomed to being able to download all of the operating system source code with the ability to compile in additional functionality into the kernel and applications. This service had been previously provided by the cvsup and csup programs. Michael will teach you how to download operating system code and ports and how to maintain system source and ports with subversion.
Gentle Introduction to Programming in Clojure
Clojure is a Lisp dialect, a language created around 1959 by John McCarthy, being the second oldest programming language next to Fortran. In this article, Carlos will present how to program with Clojure is interesting. You will find out how to do web developing in Clojure.
The Revamped Life-Preserver – How New ZFS Utilities are Changing FreeBSD & PC-BSD
Since the inclusion of ZFS into the FreeBSD base system, it has revolutionized how enterprise users have managed their data. However due to higher memory requirements and the difficulty of the initial setup, it was often out of reach for less experienced system administrators and more modest system hardware. However, over the past several years ZFS on BSD has greatly matured, reducing the complexity of the initial setup and tuning required to perform optimally. In this article, Kris will take a look at the revamped Life-Preserver utility which assists users in ZFS management, including snapshots, replication, mirroring, monitoring and more.
Migrating from Linux to FreeBSD
FreeBSD and Linux are equivalents and they basically perform the same. As we are using open-source software only, we should not encounter compatibility problems, but we must be aware that if we need to use proprietary tools, it may not work. In the following article, Charles will explain the common problems you could have, what you should consider before changing the system and what motivated me for this “adventure”.
FreeBSD for C++11 Developer (Eclipse Indigo + CDT + GCC 4.8)
FreeBSD is a very stable, high performing and extremely secure operating system. It is not a surprise that a lot of developers create applications for this platform. However, a Desktop Manager and IDE for C++ projects with other developments tools (profilers etc.) are not installed in the default setup. If you are not running FreeBSD 10, then even the compiler in base is too old (GCC 4.2) and it does not support the new C++11 standard. Andrey explains how one can setup a VirtualBox virtual appliance as a C++11 developer’s machine with the most powerful tools to be available for your C++11 projects.
FreeBSD Programming Primer – Part 9
In the ninth part of our series on programming, Michael will add some security to our CMS and refine our interface for adding content.
Improved Updates and LTS for OpenBSD
Automated security updates for both OpenBSD packages and the base system are now possible using a new utility called openup. M:Tier company started offering LTS (Long Term Support) for companies and individuals. Petr will describe how to update OpenBSD system via openup and present which new progressive features there are in OpenBSD.
