I started with OpenBSD 2.7, I just usually attributed problems to being my fault. And I've always used the ports tree, not packages. Distfiles are often useful across OpenBSD versions, sometimes in FreeBSD, I've even built some under Linux. I didn't look at what FETCH_CMD was defined as by default, I just assumed defining something non-null changed it. I did notice that when it retries it's wrongly assumed there's a problem with the first source and gone to another. Does every developer have perfect internet? That's very frustrating, maybe counterproductive in testing. Try a modem, you can probably find a free one. Connection interruptions and resets happen many times a day.

I normally have FETCH_CMD set to use wget once I get it installed but this was in doing a standard make install of a port. The first time the connection gets interrupted, but something thinks it should be done and checks the size. That's wrong so it downloads it over again instead of just resuming the download. It should only download it over again if the size matches but the CRC is wrong.

Logic in the ports tree is fine. But there's nothing it can do there: somehow your ftp returns 0 (e.g., success), so the partial file gets removed. If you want to get it fixed, you may have to provide more input, as we obviously do not see that problem... First thing would be to override FETCH_CMD to remove the -V, so that you can show us what ftp says about things. Tracing the code thru the program would help.

Going from 6W/mK to 17W/mK will conduct more heat to the sink, but the sink might need to be larger for some situations. Also even pressure around the pads is going to be critical as the box's designer says. Perhaps a stupid question, but what about grease or a pad between the sink and the case? You mean the thermal pads already deployed?
quote src=https://www.imperialviolet.org/2014/06/20/boringssl.html; Earlier this year, before Apple had too many goto fails and GnuTLS had too few, before everyone learnt that TLS heart-beat messages were a thing and that some bugs are really old, I started a tidy up of the OpenSSL code that we use at Google. We have used a number of patches on top of OpenSSL for many years. Some of them have been accepted into the main OpenSSL repository, but many of them don’t mesh with OpenSSL’s guarantee of API and ABI stability and many of them are a little too experimental. But as Android, Chrome and other products have started to need some subset of these patches, things have grown very complex. The effort involved in keeping all these patches (and there are more than 70 at the moment) straight across multiple code bases is getting to be too much. So we’re switching models to one where we import changes from OpenSSL rather than rebasing on top of them. The result of that will start to appear in the Chromium repository soon and, over time, we hope to use it in Android and internally too. There are no guarantees of API or ABI stability with this code: we are not aiming to replace OpenSSL as an open-source project. We will still be sending them bug fixes when we find them and we will be importing changes from upstream. Also, we will still be funding the Core Infrastructure Initiative and the OpenBSD Foundation. But we’ll also be more able to import changes from LibreSSL and they are welcome to take changes from us. We have already relicensed some of our prior contributions to OpenSSL under an ISC license at their request and completely new code that we write will also be so licensed. (Note: the name is aspirational and not yet a promise.) /quote

2014-04-24 15:51 GMT+02:00 Alejandro b...@b4ka.com.ar: hit and for other crucial software on the Internet... What are the chances of things like OpenSSH getting founding from them for example? (I mention quote src=http://www.openssh.com/; Please take note of our Who uses it page, which list just some of the vendors who incorporate OpenSSH into their own products -- as a critically important security / access feature -- instead of writing their own SSH implementation or purchasing one from another vendor. This list specifically includes companies like NetApp, NETFLIX, EMC, Juniper, Cisco, Apple, Red Hat, and Novell; but probably includes almost all router, switch or unix-like operating system vendors. In the 10 years since the inception of the OpenSSH project, these companies have contributed not even a dime of thanks in support of the OpenSSH project (despite numerous requests). /quote

2013/9/11 Jiri B ji...@devio.us: neither I want to troll, but my curiousity is if OpenBSD devs follow Bruce Schneier arguments and whole topic and if they have done, do or will do some re-evaluation of crypto in OpenBSD to minimalize being vulnerable to describe attacks.

I have read about claims in the media recently that there may not be any form of cryptography in existence which is unbreakable by...certain parties.
