@h3artbl33d I use Proxmox at home, and also have some colocation space at a local datacenter (also with Proxmox). But I also have bare metal machines running OpenBSD, one of them being my router :)

I can't wait to send my children to systemd-daycared

The author of Litestream is going to start releasing binaries for OpenBSD! See GitHub issue here: github.com/benbjohnson/litestr

If anyone wants to test it, these are already available on the alpha release as seen on the link above. 😀

@jcarnat did you hear about the issue with httpd breaking nextcloud due to empty body responses? i think it might be fixed on -current

Just set up unbound-adblock, an ad/malware/etc DNS blocker using a shell script. geoghegan.ca/unbound-adblock.h

@bcallah Thanks for the talk, that was really interesting and lots of good information. I appreciate the work you do in growing the BSD community and being a great steward for the BSDs!

@publius Nice! Thanks for sharing that, there's a lot of interesting stuff!

Would anyone be interested in working with me on porting Eggdrop to ?

50th release of #OpenBSD today! #OpenBSD 6.9

Congratulations to all the developers, "old" and 'new"!

We plan to do the upgrade next week, during which we will migrate from bridge(4)/vether(4) to veb(4)/vport(4).

The OpenBSD 6.9 artwork was traditionally created by Joy San. You can find more of their work here cargocollective.com/joysan

@jcarnat it was 0C here this morning (central US), but a couple of weeks ago it was 25C! Just a tease, I guess...

@yesbait removing the unattended-upgrades package should fix that!

I'm currently enjoying #openbsd over #linux because of the existence of /etc/hostname.iwn0 over the likes of NetworkManager. Just that.

@solene This is one of the reasons I am not a huge fan of private organizations (such as Netgate) trying to "contribute" to open source projects. Looks like they had different incentives/priorities (release Wireguard on pfSense fast) than the rest of the community (stable, secure wireguard implementation).

@22decembre I meant to respond sooner, but... There are a lot of great options for pfSense (or a BSD firewall). If you are willing to spend a bit more ($500-$800 USD) you can get Supermicro 1U half-depth servers that come with multiple NICs and some even have SFP ports. On the "lower end" you could look into Protectli which I believe are rebranded Qotom mini PCs. The Protectlis are more expensive but have support from the vendor. The Qotoms can be ordered from China or other vendors...

@22decembre The APUs are awesome little machines, I definitely wanted to use it as a router for gigabit FTTH, but yes, at the moment it's not a good candidate. For everything else I think they are awesome.

@jcarnat @22decembre Thanks for sharing that test data! When I couldn't route ~940mbps through OpenBSD 6.7 last time I tested my APU4D4, I decided to give it a try with FreeBSD (pfsense) and the hardware also wasn't enough. If I remember correctly, I could get ~800mbps consistently, which is awesome already (with no other load going on).

Can you get gigabit speeds on APU3 or 4 on #Openbsd ? I am a bit worried.
