OnLamp Interview: OpenBSD 3.8: Hackers of the Lost RAID

Contributed by jolan on from the 3.8-extravaganza dept.

Thanks to numerous people for pointing us to OnLamp's extensive interview with several developers. Most topics covered are related to new features in 3.8 like interface trunking, internationalization support, mmap malloc, etc. but there is also some discussion of works in progress. All in all, a very thorough interview covering many parts of OpenBSD.

    pretty long and helpful gathers much about the new things included in 3.8, as well as the future ones.

    Trunking, that's so AWESOME! Is it safe to assume you can run dhclient or a dhcpd on a trunk interface; seeing he mentioned layer 2 failover. TIA

      Of course you can run dhclient/dhcpd. But use -current if you really want to use trunk. Too new for 3.8.
