v4l sup­port in the lin­ux­u­la­tor MFCed to 8-stable

I merged the v4l trans­la­tion layer into the lin­ux­u­la­tor of 8-stable. As in -cur­rent, this just means that linux apps (like Skype) can now use FreeBSD native devices which con­form to the v4l ABI. The port mul­ti­me­dia/webcamd pro­vides access to some web­cams (or DVB hard­ware) via the v4l ABI.

Peo­ple which want to test the lin­ux­u­la­tor part should first make sure a native FreeBSD appli­ca­tion has no prob­lem access­ing the device.

The rea­son why this blog was not acces­si­ble to some people

I got noti­fied that my blog was not acces­si­ble for a while. Seems that at least recent fire­fox ver­sions some­how changed their behav­ior in what is send in the HTTP-header. This caused an Apache Redi­rect­Match rule to trig­ger, which denies access to some parts of the blog for some users.

The WP-login, WPdash­board, and logged-in users where not affected by this, so if you have some cus­tom rules which deny access to your blog, make sure you make a test of your blog when logged-out.

Native RealPlayer for FreeBSD

Some days ago I got approval from Real, I’m allowed to blog about the native FreeBSD RealPlayer. Now I get time to blog about it.

Ok, there’s not much to say about it so far. Some peo­ple in the FreeBSD com­mu­nity (among them 2 com­mit­ters, guess who is one of them…) are help­ing Real to get it up and run­ning on FreeBSD. The FreeBSD build machine is setup and some build logs are already gen­er­ated. Some minor prob­lems where iden­ti­fied (miss­ing soft­ware which can be installed out of the ports, some minor issues in the build sys­tem and some other easy to fix stuff I don’t remem­ber ATM) in a first round of log–review.

This reminds me that I should have a look if there are some new logs. Maybe I get time at the week­end. Let’s hope I don’t for­get about it… ;-)
