Hey all,

Given that DragonFlyBSD provides both HAMMER and HAMMER2 filesystems options at install. Which is sufficiently stable for personal use? Which would you recommend?

BSDCan, a BSD conference held in Ottawa, Canada, quickly established itself as the technical
conference for people working on and with 4.4BSD based operating systems and related projects.
The organizers have found a fantastic formula that appeals to a wide range of people from extreme
novices to advanced developers.

• Conference: 8-9 June 2018 (Fri/Sat)

Hey. Recently I had to replace hdd on my laptop and decided to try DFbsd, instead of my favorite gentoo. Here are my impressions:
1. DFbsd is simple and logical, and everything I've been trying to achieve in gentoo is there originally.
2. The speed and responsiveness of the system is commensurate with gentoo.
3. There is no need to compile everything, and my laptop is always cold.
4. Pleased with the presence of scrolling with two fingers, contrary to the statement in the handbook.
5. The impression was spoiled by the lack of possibility to send the laptop to sleep (S3), although in freebsd this function works.
I noticed some oddities in the behavior of the i915, depending on the way it is loaded.
I decided to continue using DFbsd, I'll see what happens with the next update.

The BSDCan 2018 website is now live:

The CFP will be sent out soon.

Aright, so I just finished my SANS SEC504 course (Hacker Tools, Techniques, Exploits, and Incident Handling). Now I want (need) to setup a virtual environment to "practice" what I've learned. I do not see VirtualBox as a package to install, and bhyve need the grub module to be able to run linux. Any suggestions? DragonflyBSD runs so nicely on my AMD machine I hate to give it up for something else.

Okay. So I've been a BSD consumer for many, many years. I've always wanted to "give back" what was never sure how, maybe analysis paralysis-- who know. I decided to jump in, not knowing much of anything. I checked the bug list and found Bug #3034 ( I thought, "maybe I can figure this out." My first question though is this, why do the files in /proc/curproc/ have content, yet the size shows up as zero? For example:
/proc/curproc/map has 10 lines and shows as empty.

$ wc -l /proc/curproc/map
10 /proc/curproc/map

wc -l /proc/curproc/map
10 /proc/curproc/map

If I copy that file to my home dir, it shows a little differently:
$ wc -l map
11 map
$ file map
map: ASCII text

No elaborate explanation is needed (unless you want to), perhaps a link to a website.

Doesn't seem to be much activity here, maybe we could change that.
