In case you have not noticed yet, KDTRACE_HOOKS is now in the GENERIC kernel in FreeBSD-current. This means you just need to load the DTrace modules and can use DTrace with the GENERIC kernel.

In case you do not know what you can do with DTrace, take the time to have a look at the DTrace blog. It is worth any minute you invest reading it.

(Free)BSD inside Android

Today I was looking into the OpenSource licenses which are displayed for Android (2.3.4). There are several files which come with a BSD license.

During looking at it, I noticed that the libm has the copyright of several FreeBSD people. I did not had an in-deep look if this is because they took the FreeBSD libm, or if this is because parts of the FreeBSD libm where adopted by other BSD projects.

What I noticed is, that some special characters are not displayed correctly. For example the name Dag-Erling Smørgrav looks mangled in the display of the license inside the phone (I hope it is displayed better in my blog). His name is not the only problem case, there are also other characters which are not rendered as expected.

This does not really look professional.

Long time no blog. Many things have happened during last 6 months: I got a commit bit, FreeBSD/MIPS reached multiuser and started migration from P4 to CVS. Right now we're waiting for toolchain patches to be imported to contrib/binutils properly. So let's prepare to celebrate buildable FreeBSD/MIPS world in a couple of weeks!
