Add vmctl send and vmctl receive

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 18:49:30 GMT

As we see from the commit message, new developer Pratik Vyas (pd@) adds the ability to do paused VM migrations for VMM.

Mike Larkin also writes on Twitter:

#OpenBSD vmctl(8) : vmctl send myvm | ssh vmctl receive Yes, it's that easy.
Ed: this is *paused* migrations, not live migrations.

OpenBSD and the modern laptop

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 22:28:33 GMT

Over at his blog, Undeadly co-editor Peter Hansteen describes the experience of installing OpenBSD-current on a new laptop.

The article, OpenBSD and the modern laptop, goes into some detail on the install procedure, and hits only minor snags even when using modern and recent additions such as UEFI boot.

The conclusion is that OpenBSD is well suited for laptop and desktop use, and things tend to just work.

On the other hand, we strongly suggest Peter posted the article before the contents of his home directory had actually been completely transferred. He's such a packrat.

Request for testing:

TL;DR - A modernised version of Undeadly is available for testing at <>. Broken features of the current site have been fixed, removed, or replaced. The new software supports - and, where appropriate, requires - HTTPS. Testing, contributions, and constructive feedback would be appreciated.

An effort to modernise the Undeadly software was initiated in response to the article Undeadly and HTTPS. This has resulted in substantially reworked software which is now available for public testing. Note that this is not the completely new system which is (arguably) needed.
