Changes to the NetBSD Packages Collection in May 2003

By Alistair Crooks

By my calculations, at the end of May 2003, there were 3762 packages in the NetBSD Packages Collection, up from 3708 the previous month, a rise of 54.

For those of you with newer PC motherboards, you can now play an interesting game called "How hot is that application?". Simply run xmbmon (pkgsrc/sysutils/xmbmon), and observe the temperature as the package is compiled. I know that Perl gets 2 degrees on my old 1GHz PIII. I apportion that as 1 degree dynamic, 1 degree static.

The Package of The Month award is a joint one this month:

(a) to mozilla and mplayer, nominated by myself, for letting me listen to internet radio stations of my choice from NetBSD. My family thank the people who made this all possible. I am beginning to suspect that my family do not appreciate the same type of music as me. Where did I go wrong?

(b) x2x, (pkgsrc/x11/x2x), nominated by Aaron J. Grier, who writes: "being able to warp input devices (mouse and keyboard) between two different machines on two different architectures (sparc and alpha) both running non-xfree86 X servers is just too cool. my fiance makes fun of me for keeping old monitors around, but now I can put them to use. who needs virtual desktops when you can have multiple real ones? :)"

and, finally,

(c) dovecot (pkgsrc/mail/dovecot), nominated by Erik Berls, who says: "it's an IMAP server that fully supports virtual mailboxes that don't require real accounts on the machine. It supports both mailbox and Maildir formats of storage, and integrates well with postfix.. ie: it just solved a very real problem for me.."
