Using nullfs, one can easily run multiple jails by reusing a base install. The FreeBSD Handbook has a page on this, but Scott Robins prefers an alternative method – “which I find far simpler”.
I have not tried it out yet, but it looks interesting.
A team of FreeBSD developers has formed the jenkins-admin team and they have set up the Jenkins Continuous Integration system inside the FreeBSD cluster, and are building several branches of FreeBSD.
More information can be read on the iXsystems blog: Jenkins and Bhyve: Continuous Integration for FreeBSD
The first PC-BSD 10.0 quarterly update has come out, and 10.0.1 is now
This update includes a number of important bugfixes, as well as newer
packages and desktops, such as KDE 4.12.2, Cinnamon 2.0 and more. For
more details and updating instructions, refer to the PC-BSD 10.0.1 release notes.
This episode has an interview with Eric Turgeon, founder of the desktop-focused GhostBSD project and a tutorial on disk concatenating in NetBSD.
This post is sponsored by our partner RootBSD, expert in BSD style web hosting : stable, secure, flexible and friendly.
FreeBSD is pleased to announce that once again we have been selected to participate in the Google Summer of Code program. This gives University students the opportunity to earn a $5,500 USD stipend in exchange for working on Open Source software over their Summer break. Students have around 12 weeks to work on their project, and will be mentored by existing FreeBSD committers. Participating organisations will earn $500 USD per student mentored.
FreeBSD’s organisation page may be found here and a list of possible project ideas may be found here. Please note that projects do not have to come from the ideas list, and indeed students are encouraged to produce their own project ideas – the majority of past projects have been thought up by the participants themselves. More details about FreeBSD’s participation in Google Summer of Code including contact details can be found here.
Students are also encouraged to visit the GSoC website to view more details of the program, including eligibility requirements, and a list of other participating organisations.

FreeNAS is the most popular storage OS in the world, and makes it easy for anyone to build secure, robust network attached storage (NAS) to store files and share files.
About FreeNAS: FreeNAS is a FreeBSD-based (nanobsd) and BSD licensed open source Network Attached Storage Platform developed by iXsystems, that has been optimised to support file storage and files sharing across Windows, Apple, and UNIX-like systems.
This website is looking for a new owner. Since I’m not able to dedicate enough time to maintain this website anymore, I have decided to step back and let somebody else take over and run it. I loved building up this site and keeping it up to date for the last 7 years (almost), so it’s been a hard decision to let it go.
I’ll still be around and be part of the FreeBSD community, but I need more time to work on something else FreeBSD related……
If you’re interested in taking over a 7 year old website with a steady and healthy amount of daily page views and a Google PR of 5, please get in touch to work out the details.
The goal of the presentation was to create a simple FreeNAS application to demonstrate some of the common methods used when dealing with FreeNAS development, as well as showcase some of the API.
