Mark Kettenis (kettenis@) wrote a message to tech@ asking for volunteers to test a patch to squash a few bugs in the PCI code: Hi All, dlg@ managed to get access to a machine that actually uses 64-bit PCI addresses behind a bridge. This triggered some bugs in the so far untested code. Quelle suprprise! I'd appreciate it if some people can verify that this doesn't break other systems. In particular I'm looking for testers on server-type machines, both i386 and amd64. Thanks, Mark

If you have such a machine, you should make sure that this doesn't introduce any issues for you. As always, quality releases depend on widespread testing!

For those of you who missed it on Friday, Martin Pieuchot (mpi@) enabled USB 3.0 support in OpenBSD: CVSROOT: /cvs Module name: src Changes by: mpi@cvs.openbsd.org 2014/11/07 09:44:18 Modified files: sys/arch/i386/conf: GENERIC sys/arch/amd64/conf: GENERIC Log message: Enable xhci(4). Most of the features are here, USB 1.x devices only work if they are connected to the root hub and isochronous transfers are not supported for the moment. Let me know if your controller/device do not work. In this case attach a dmesg of a kernel build with XHCI_DEBUG. ok deraadt@

Not everyone missed it, of course, with problem reports and fixes being seen over the weekend.

For those of you who'd been looking forward to using those blue USB ports of yours, now's the time to plug in as many 3.0 devices as you can find!

Edit: Of course, just about the time we publish this story, USB1.x devices are now supported on a USB3.x controller.

Owing to its BSD heritage, OpenBSD ships with a few games installed in /usr/games. Quite a few, in fact. There are more programs in games (46) than in /bin (43). Some of them aren’t really games, but more like toys, but nevertheless there they are. They aren’t exactly the focus of OpenBSD, but they’re still part of the system and do get the occasional maintenance update.

One such game is bcd, which prints out punch card looking diagrams of input strings. I made a few improvements to it recently.

As they say, read the whole thing.

Reports are coming in from all over the world from people getting their CDs early, the obvious benefit to pre-ordering. If you haven't ordered yet, you can still do so over at http://www.openbsdeurope.com/, or if you don't need physical media (you'll miss out on the stickers), you can simply make a donation.

Please also consider getting your employer to order sets or make a donation if you use OpenBSD in your organisation.

Now author Peter Hansteen has received his author copies, and he has teamed up with the OpenBSD Foundation to auction off the first ever signed copy of the book.

More details are to be found over at Peter's blog, but the main item is that the first physical copy of the new edition ever touched by and subsequently signed by its author is up on an ebay auction where all proceeds will go to the OpenBSD Foundation. For unsuccessful bidders, Peter urges them to donate the amount of their highest bid to the OpenBSD Foundation.
