FreeBSD Hacks

This page is really out of date, but I am leaving it up just in case.

These are some local modifications to the FreeBSD drivers to support various features.

  • Bridging. Modifying network drivers to support the bridging code, and how to setup a packet-filtering bridge.
  • Matlab 5.3. Installing the Linux version of Matlab on FreeBSD.
  • lnc driver. Fixing transmit underflow problems on some of the newer lance ethernet chipsets.
  • sidecar. Cornell uses kerberosIV and a program called sidecar to securely authenticate users to various services. This is what has to be done to get it working on FreeBSD 3.2-RELEASE.
