iBox

iBox was a highly customised and flexible live CD based on Gentoo Linux. Thanks to glc (the Chinese branch of gentoo portage), iBox provides an all-round Chinese (simplified) desktop environment using GNOME with almost all pre-configured popular software. The main feature of iBox was the auto-detection and auto-configuration of hardware, especially with the mkxorgconf script to help create the configuration file for Xorg. Last but not least, iBox can rebuild itself through ibox-builder from a Gentoo box.

2019-05-25 NEWDevelopment Release: FreeBSD 11.3 BETA1
Glen Barber has announced the release of new testing media for FreeBSD. The new development snapshot, FreeBSD 11.3 BETA1, contains mostly minor fixes and improvements for the FreeBSD 11.x series and makes it easier to remotely access ARM-based systems. “Note regarding arm SD card images: For convenience for those without console access to the system, a freebsd user with a password of ‘freebsd’ is available by default for ssh(1) access. Additionally, the root user password is set to root. It is strongly recommended to change the password for both users after gaining access to the system.” Barber reportsat this time that it is not yet possible to perform a live upgrade to the new beta relase, but that is likely to change in the near future. Further information on FreeBSD’s 11.x status and development can be found in the project’s release notes.

About FreeBSD
FreeBSD is a UNIX-like operating system for the i386, amd64, IA-64, arm, MIPS, powerpc, ppc64, PC-98 and UltraSPARC platforms based on U.C. Berkeley’s “4.4BSD-Lite” release, with some “4.4BSD-Lite2” enhancements. It is also based indirectly on William Jolitz’s port of U.C. Berkeley’s “Net/2” to the i386, known as “386BSD”, though very little of the 386BSD code remains. FreeBSD is used by companies, Internet Service Providers, researchers, computer professionals, students and home users all over the world in their work, education and recreation. FreeBSD comes with over 20,000 packages (pre-compiled software that is bundled for easy installation), covering a wide range of areas: from server software, databases and web servers, to desktop software, games, web browsers and business software – all free and easy to install.

2018-10-27 Development Release: FreeBSD 12.0-BETA2
The FreeBSD project is making progress toward releasing FreeBSD 12.0. The developers have released a new development snapshot, FreeBSD 12.0-BETA2, which removes some debugging options, updates the time zone database, and improves the Linux compatibility layer. “The ability to prevent interrupting the boot process without entering the password in loader.conf(5) had been fixed. Several drivers originally targeted for removal in 12.0-RELEASE had been removed from the GENERIC kernel configuration on amd64 and i386. An off-by-one error that could lead to a system panic with the sound(4) driver had been fixed. The mlx5(4) driver had been updated to notify when a port on ConnectX-6 network cards had been turned off due to insufficient power. The filter_reloc() function in objcopy(1) had been restored, which fixes building GCC. The shared library version of OpenSSL in the base system had been increased from ‘9’ to ‘111’ in order to prevent shared library version collisions with OpenSSL installed via pkg(8) or the Ports Collection. Updates to the Linux compatibility layer.” Further details can be found in the project’s release announcement.

If you would like to use SVN to do a source based update of an existing system, use the “stable/12” branch. Please note, the release notes page is not yet complete, and will be updated on an ongoing basis as the 12.0-RELEASE cycle progresses.” One known issue affecting those who’d like to upgrade from FreeBSD 11 is also mentioned: “Please note, freebsd-update(8) binary upgrade bits are still in progress and not yet available. A follow-up to this email will be sent when they are available.” Installation ISO images and virtual machine disk images are available for download from FreeBSD mirrors; here are two quick links to the amd64 and i386 installation DVDs: FreeBSD-12.0-BETA1-amd64-dvd1.iso (1,869MB, SHA512), FreeBSD-12.0-BETA1-i386-dvd1.iso (1,339MB, SHA512).
