Since Makefile.common v1.26, the application configuration files go to ${PKG_SYSCONFBASE}/sasl/, instead of ${PREFIX}/lib/sasl as documented in a multitude of web HowTo documents including this page. After a

sendmail(8) told me about the error of my ways, but it sure was a long way...

Now veracrypt is supporting FreeBSD. The reason I'm pushing this is it the biggest standard across platforms. Veracrypt supports Truecrypt. Truecrypt had a method of encrypting a whole systen drive while it was running live drive and the source code is available. Does that mean it could be done for NetBSD, well no but it's a start. It has been done on Windows.


I see a lot stuff that's BSD or open source and it seems they frequently are always reinventing the wheel. It's depressing sometimes.

"sailor's goal is not to provide bullet-proof security, chroot is definitely not a trustable isolator; instead, sailor is a really convenient way of trying / testing an evironment without compromising your workstation filesystem." As of 6/30/17 It's under heavy development.

Community might take https://github.com/conformal/xombrero?files=1 and make NetBrowser.

Agreed. And Lumina doesn't rely on dbus.

I can't imagine the specified /boot.cfg entry, with a path going into /usr/pkg/... can really be found by boot. All previous tutorials and how-to's specify copying .../xen*-kernel/xen.gz into the root directory.

The number of users having problems following the advice on the boot.cfg entry suggests that /boot can't traverse the directory tree deep enough to find xen.gz, even assuming /usr/pkg is on the same filesystem as /.

I forgot to add that Truecrypt had a version for Linux and at one time had a BSD version which I believe no longer is around or operative. Truecrypt was anonymously written and he closed up shop and just disappeared one day. Truecrypt has also had extensive code verification leading to additions in Veracrypt.

Here's a link for tcplay(derivative or Truecrypt).




and the Dragonfly BSD I linked above where it's use of tcplay is described.

I hope this is helpful All the questions that you asked in the summary have been answered on other systems with TC and VC. I know they're not Net but it could be a good start on how they've managed it.
