490: New Year’s Plan9’ing: FreeBSD Foundation’s Software Development review of 2022, what can we learn from Vintage Computing, OpenBSD KDE Status Report 2022, a Decade of HardenedBSD, In Praise of Plan9, and more.
Automation and Hacking Your FreeBSD CLI: The more we automate, the more we can save time and boost our productivity to higher levels. In this article we plan on looking at how to build more human-readable outputs in FreeBSD by leveraging tools like libxo to drive better output for automation APIs.
OpenZFS – Data Security vs. Integrity: Data security is about preventing data from being disclosed, ensuring that only the correct people can access it. Data integrity ensures the data is correct, that it has not become corrupt due to hardware failure or other issues. With ZFS, you can get both.
tldr guide to get it working:
## Step 1: building
you need to build the project (no packages for instance for fedora), but it is easy since build requirements are up to date.
However, i had to use the current master version, since the stable release from 2020 wants a version of ffmpeg which is too old for my fedora.
received some odd warnings, but the game still works
Warning: "crtbegin.o" not found, this will probably cause a linking failure
Warning: "crtend.o" not found, this will probably cause a linking failure
216888 lines compiled, 10.6 sec

make: Leaving directory '/home/username/src/USDX/src'
## Step 2: starting creative commons songs
For legal reasons, it doesn't contain for instance copyrighted music and similar.
some creative common songs which you can use without much configuration: https://github.com/UltraStar-Deluxe/songs
This is great to understand how real examples work and makes step 3 (the interesting part) easier.
You need to git clone this repository and then start the game with the path to this repo.
$ cd ~/src/USDX/game
~/src/USDX/game $ ./ultrastardx -Songpath ~/songs
## Step 3: starting with copyrighted music
Basically, ultrastar just loads whatever music file you dropped in the songs folder. So this way, you can also decide if you want to sing based on an instrumential version or if you want to sing along the original song, with the original singer assisting you.
For the text and the notes how high you need to sing, i found this repository which contains both for many popular songs: https://github.com/razzertronic/usdx-songs
but it doesn't work yet, the music file is still missing. Look into the creative commons repository and see which folder structure of the songs are expected (cover, text file and music file is important).
The music file is also referenced in the song.txt file. This file looks for instance like that. `audio.ogg` must exist. MP3 is just the tag name, so the format doesn't matter. the creative commons repositiory also uses some OGG files.
#TITLE:Alle nur geklaut
: 0 2 64 Ich
Also, i found that the music file i downloaded from youtube and the song.txt don't fit perfectly together, the youtube song lags a few seconds behind. TO fix that, i needed to change the GAP value in the song.txt
Another example is: in one Madonna song, i found that one break (short period of silence) was inconsistent to the song.txt.
Anyway, i guess you need to be prepared to spend some time to get each song working. Didn't try it yet, but maybe https://github.com/UltraStar-Deluxe/UltraStar-Creator can help with that.
However, the software itself, and the overall result is **awesome** and very much on the same level as singstar!
Here's a blog post where I talk about some well-known open-source games: [libranet.de/display/0b6b25a8-7…](https://libranet.de/display/0b6b25a8-7063-cc8c-7f9f-116272113110)
I was originally going to post it directly to this group, but for some reason whenever I tried it the message got stuck "pending" and removing the mention fixed it.
For some reason this has stopped working for me. Is there any alternative for streaming torrents with the discovery that stremio offers?
I know I can use jellyfin + ombi + prowlarr + radarr, but installing and configuring it isn't as simple as with stremio.
Something like this using Jellyfin would be nice: https://github.com/klutchell/mediaserver
Testing wanted: execute-only on amd64: On the tech@ mailing list, Theo de Raadt (deraadt@) has issued a request for testing of patch(es) for execute-only (xonly) binaries on amd64.
What kind of jobs are available with FreeBSD/OpenBSD?: Networking student wanting to know whether FreeBSD/OpenBSD knowledge is a thing that could bring them job offers.
NetBSD HAMMER2: Based on the FreeBSD version, with notes: - Initial target is read-only support, but write support is also planned once read-only support is accomplished. - Tags are merely for packaging, nothing directly to do with file system version. - -CURRENT aka upstream NetBSD is the only tier 1 support branch at the moment.

FreeBSD vs. Linux – 5 Factors When Considering FreeBSD vs Linux – Package Management: The popularity of package managers permeates all Unix distributions. Yet there are subtle differences in the approach that Linux vs. FreeBSD take in handling packages. How does Linux compare to FreeBSD's way of managing packages? We have identified key points to consider in the software lifecycle management of both in the article.
