This is a list of things that aren't working at the moment that need fixing. Please add to it.

  • "su" hangs before giving the user a shell prompt
  • "ftp" always fails authentication (probably ftpd's fault) - this is for a newly created user, not root (since root is in /etc/ftpusers which denies access)

Can't we use the github issue tracker for LiteBSD bugs?

https://github.com/sergev/LiteBSD/issues

I would propose another topic for discussion.
Does it make sense to organize a separate forum for LiteBSD?
May be on some other site?
Any propositions?

For time being add "LiteBSD Bug Reports" in the retrobsd Board index. It will popularize retrobsd as well then :)

I was pondering adding a separate LiteBSD section to this forum, but LiteBSD.org could be good - though of course it then adds yet another forum I have to police...

LiteBSD is still pretty retro, so it fits into the RetroBSD umbrella concept, so I vote keep it here, but make a separate set of categories for it.

Well, I've made an executive decision and split the forum into sections. Now I'm just moving some LiteBSD posts to the new sections.

Now - what do we do about training Wiz to post in the right area?

  • "ps" and "w" fail with "proc size mismatch (3329 total, 656 chunks)
    • The kernel thinks kinfo_proc is 664 bytes, the userland thinks it's 656 bytes.
    • The message is actually coming from libkvm
After much recompiling and debugging I can see that there isn't actually a bug here, but it is very easy for libkvm to become out of sync with the kernel and thus corrupt everyting that uses it. Some kind of protection against this would be nice...

halt and reboot - cycles in a loop over login, it does not halt with halt.

It does, you just have to wait a while.

That's exactly what I'm trying to avoid: people thinking about LiteBSD as something outdated. There is nothing "retro" in LiteBSD.

IMHO, it's not a good idea that people google "LiteBSD" and go to RetroBSD site. I can install another phpbb forum at litebsd.org. The idea is to use the same database (users and articles), but a different section. Matt, can you please help me in this?

It has SLIP - that's retro if nothing else is. You can no longer get DIP running on Linux, only slattach. It's all PPP these days.

Maybe we should just keep the forums the same - one combined forum for everything - but move it to a more generic URL - mcubsd.org, bsd4mcu.org, picbsd.org, whatever. There's so much crossover between LiteBSD and RetroBSD (software, technology and users) that it makes sense to keep it all together to some extent. And I really don't want yet another forum to log on to and moderate.

Frankly, I don't want to manage another forum as well. That's why I asked about migration to some other place.

Not picbsd.org, please: we should not be too much Microchip focused. Eventually other architectures will evolve. I would propose to replace 'BSD for PIC32MX' and 'BSD for PIC32MZ' in section titles with 'Unix for simple microcontrollers' and 'Unix for microcontrollers with MMU'.

Do we really need to split the forum into sections? Too many boards is a bit confusing.

This adds an item to the TODO list. It should be pretty easy to port if_spppsubr.c from FreeBSD.

It does help to keep the topics separate. You can see at a glance from the breadcrumbs if this is about RetroBSD or LiteBSD - and as many of the discussions sound similar it can get confusing not knowing which OS is being talked about.

MCUnix.org?

Unix for simple microcontrollers.
For example pic16f84..

  • /sbin/init is not receiving (or ignoring) signals.

This may explain why /sbin/halt does not work as expected.
