Dear FreeBSD Community Member,
September not only brings the start of autumn, but also marks the beginning of one of the busiest periods on the Foundation calendar. From sponsoring
and attending a number of new events, to kicking off our new middle school FreeBSD class and reaching a milestone with the FreeBSD Journal, it’s been a big month. Plus, that’s just the beginning of what we have in store for Fall 2015. Please take a minute to read up on what we’ve been up to and thank you for all you do to support the Foundation and the Project.
FreeBSD committer Mariusz Zaborski highlighted his recent trip to BSDCam 2015, sponsored by the FreeBSD Foundation. The conference was held at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom.
I’m a fresh FreeBSD committer who is very interested in security things. I also work for the Wheel Systems company which develops security solutions. So it was natural for me that I should attend Cambridge Developer Summit which, in my opinion, is the most security related event in every committer’s calendar. This was also my third visit to Cambridge. For the first one I also wrote a trip report which you can find here. The conference was held in August 17-20, 2015.

Thanks to user ali rafie for this guide on how to get htop working on FreeBSD 10.
htop is an interactive system-monitor process-viewer written for Linux. It is designed as an alternative to the Unix program top. It shows a frequently updated list of the processes running on a computer, normally ordered by the amount of CPU usage. Unlike top, htop provides a full list of processes running, instead of the top resource-consuming processes. Htop uses color and gives visual information about processor, swap and memory status.
Thanks to the Engineering Walden, you can now get CentOS 6 set up in a FreeBSD 10.2 jail. Follow the link for the full tutorial.
CentOS 6! In a jail on the FreeBSD 10.2 kernel! THAT’S EFFING AWESOME.
I just got this up and running after some hours spent cobbling together instructions from the various sources to which I link below, and then troubleshooting some issues (one of which is listed at the bottom for anyone else who encounters it), but it works.
In this BSD Now episode, hosts Allan Jude and Kris Moore interview Aaron Poffenberger about his experience in bringing BSD’s presence to Linux conferences.
