The commit of the day!

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008

I just saw jhb@’s BTX commit which is very exciting. As he noted in the log, this should fix the long-standing BTX halt issue when you boot from USB cdrom (I’m also a victim). Last year, I tried with kib@’s BTX patch and it works, but it never gets committed due to other issues. Now, thank you John and Kostik. I believe this helps many users to install FreeBSD on their laptops (well, this should be in April’s snapshot?). :D

Following DragonFly BSD Digest, I noticed there are some work on so called ‘VKernel’, which is similar to User Mode Linux. It looks interesting.
