bsdtalk195 - Mike Larkin

This episode is brought to you by renice, which allows you to alter the priority of running processes. The renice utility appeared in 4.0BSD.

Interview with Mike Larkin. We talk about ACPI and OpenBSD.

Note: Shortly after recording this, OpenBSD added support for the "machdep.lidsuspend" sysctl. By setting this to "1", your machine should suspend automatically when the lid is closed. By default, OpenBSD will always resume when the lid is opened. This sysctl works for most ACPI machines that have a "LID" ACPI object.

And this is what I truly love about OpenBSD for particular: K.I.S.S.
No fancy cli variables and commands - just one, simple var, just like hwperf for ACPI CPU scaling ...

Absolutely love it!

Cheers to all fellow OpenBSD users and devs
