BSD and Darwin derivatives The DragonFly BSD project has recently decided to hold off on the 2.12 release to address a couple of long-standing issues. Some of the disruptive work done to address these issues has also resulted in the MP Token (giant kernel lock) and other major contention points being finally pushed out of the way of all critical paths. The result?

Great but ...

Yesterday I pulled the 2.12 iso image down and burned it to a disc. When I boot my machine with the disc, everything goes fine except that it cannot detect my PS/2 keyboard. I cannot do anything but just push the reboot button.

Anyway, I like BSD. I've been using *BSD since 90's. Before I give it another try, I'd better stick to FreeBSD, which is my favorite.

If you can be troubled to try again (and maybe plug in a USB keyboard?), the DragonFly project would definitely appreciate a proper bug report.

Yes. I plan to give it another try when I get a USB keyboard. I am very interested in Dragonfly's Hammer and SMP implementation, which are different from FreeBSD's counterparts.
