Quick links to Reporitories

These are development repositories but good for normal use.
For production use, you can compile packages yourself, or, help us building up a "release" repository with QA.

OpenIndiana OI151a8 (and a9)


localhostoi151a8 testing Repository for OpenIndiana OI151a8 (and a9) is updated

During the last days, the testing repository for OpenIndiana OI151a8 (most packages should work in OI151a9 as well) got an update.
You can for instance find vlc, postfix, dovecot, tightvnc, and so on in this repostory. Please test the packages and give feedback, so I can collect package names and versions that can be promoted to an official repository soon.

If you whish to have SFE packages included, please drop me a note on any channel where you can find me (well that should not be to difficult).

Have fun with SFE packages and thanks for supporting SFE!

Blog user registration now online (again)

User registration is now back online. There has been an error in the blog spam filter module, the upgrade procedure didn't update the database tables correctly. This is now fixed and user registration works again. Please note, new users need to be approved by the blog administrator. This is necessary, because internet bots try to register lots of users in the hope, that they could publish comment spam.

Attending #31C3

If you are attending the Chaos Communication Congress 31C3 in Hamburg, I would like to talk with you.

If you're using OmniOS, OpenIndiana or Solaris 11 (IPS), then we could talk on which packages are needed or if you would like to help the SFE spec-files-extra project to get even more packages.

You can reach me on twitter @tomww or txt me on extention 8660 (GSM congress phone system)

My base is the "Sendezentrum" on Level 1 just below hall 1.



Testing OmniOS r151012 with SFEdovecot.spec and SFEpostfix.spec

Update: 20150119: the testing repository is not online: pkg set-publisher -G '*' -g http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhostomnios localhostomnios

Tested #SFE on OmniOS:
SFEpostfix and SFEdovecot compile clean. SFEsamba is on the way testing.

Thats very good news for the whole spec-files-extra project.
It now runs on Solaris 11, OpenIndiana oi151a8 and OmniOS.

Which packages would you like to see first on OmniOS?

MPlayer Version 1.1.1 hit the repositories

SFEMplayer.spec is now at version 1.1.1 and reached the spec-files-extra repository.

Automatic builds succeeded for Solaris 11 and he package is uploaded to the IPS repositoriy localhosts11.

Please test and provide a short feedback if it works or if you see errors.

Have fun with MPlayer!

(Tip1: Use "smplayer" to get a very nice gui ontop for mplayer)
(Tip2: If you like VLC more then MPlayer, VLC 2 is in the repos as well)
