LibeOffice 4.4.7.2 on the workbench

[Update 20160107] LibreOffice 4.4.7.2 is ready, go to http://sfe.opencsw.org/libreoffice-4.4.7.2

Hi friends of SFE!

Currently I work on Libreoffice 4.4.7.2 to get the fixes for CVEs.

It is not a simple recompile, over the time I discover flaws in what the LO-build system produces.
For instance lots of libraries (*.so) use symbols form the boost_system library, but the makefiles aren't adding the needed switches /-lboot_system) to include the library...

Are you attenting the Chaos Communication Congres 32C3 in Hamburg this year?
If I manage to get a ticket (unfortunatly and surprisingly sold out since Dec 7th!), I'll be there.
I'd like to arrange a meeting and talk with ->you<- about SFE and Solaris and OpenIndiana and OmniOS. What do you think? Would you come to the table?
In case you are interested and to keep in contact, drop me a note here or on twitter or email, whatever is conventient to you.

Regards,
Thomas

Wish List for binary packages for Solaris OpenIndiana OmniOS

  • Posted on: 3 February 2016
  • By: tomww

Please don't think that there is no work done because the table below is so large. A majority of packages is already compiled and ready for install in the IPS repositories (to browse package listings, see quick links). This table blow just says, what is desired. That means, you can wait until a volunteer picks up the task and creates the packages for you.

Proposal - Webstack - Which Packages needed?

  • Posted on: 28 January 2016
  • By: tomww

Proposal:

Build a webstack in SFE for Solaris, OpenIndiana (Hipster) and OmniOS.
Which packages would you like to see?

Apache
Nginx

php (latest)

mysql
postgresql

What about nodejs as a separate stack? Nodejs 4.x.x LTS and nodejs 5.x.x

Please write comments and add if possible which application you want to run on the webstack.
If PHP extensions are necessary for your project, that would be of interest as well!

Regards
T

Quick links to IPS Repositories

  • Posted on: 19 January 2016
  • By: tomww

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 and a voting website to get packages promoted to "release".

(Please do *not* mirror these development repositories. You can download the package and prerequisite packages with special switch "-r" to the pkgrecv command. That saves capacities on the server. Once a release repository exists, you can mirror that. Thank you!)

Browse

By clicking on the URL you can browse available packages for your OS:
(X86 only! Donate a SPARC build zone?)

Solaris 11 IPS Packages Repository (415)
http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhosts11

(upcoming) Solaris 12 IPS Packages Repository (169)
http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhosts12

OpenIndiana OI151a8 (and a9) IPS Packages Respository (376)
http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhostoi151a8

OmniOS IPS Packages Repository (88)
http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhostomnios

OpenIndiana Hipster (moving target) IPS Packages Repository (95)
http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhostoih

Publisher

To configure those repos as publishers use: (pick only the one matching you OS)
pfexec pkg set-publisher -G '*' -g http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhosts11 localhosts11
pfexec pkg set-publisher -G '*' -g http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhosts12 localhosts12
pfexec pkg set-publisher -G '*' -g http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhostoi151a8 localhostoi151a8
pfexec pkg set-publisher -G '*' -g http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhostomnios localhostomnios
pfexec pkg set-publisher -G '*' -g http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhostoih localhostoih

These repositories are 1:1 copies from the build machines, so please expect contents to change frequently and as well, the content may have bugs. Drop us a note (in the comments, or by email) if a package works (yeah, we like that!) or breaks for you (we need to know that).
One day there will be a process which establishes a voting system that is used to promote packages from these development repositories to a public release repository. If you have ideas, how a test / promotion process should look like, please let us know (in the comments or by email)

 

Please keep in mind: You can install any exact package version if you specify the *complete* FMRI listed including the timestamp.
Example:
pkg list -avf postfix
[...]
pkg://localhosts11/sfe/service/network/smtp/postfix@3.0.3,5.11-0.0.175.3.1.0.5.0:20160108T10293
[...]
To install exaclty that version and no other, use:
pfexec pkg install -v pkg://localhosts11/sfe/service/network/smtp/postfix@3.0.3,5.11-0.0.175.3.1.0.5.0:20160108T10293

This way, you could install exactly an *older* or a *newer* package then the resolver would auto-select for you. This enables you to help yourself, in case we have a broken package in these build repositories. You simply install another version which is working for you.

 

Postfix 3.0.0 Package Fixed Manpage Names

Read other news on postfix 3.0.3 with mediated symlinks

The postfix 3.0.0 package may have created a file conflict for the manpage mailq.1. The sendmail package from your OS-distro wanted to live in the same place.

The renaming of postfix's mailq.1 manpage to mailq.postfix.1 in the packaging stage didn't work any more, this is fixed now.

LibreOffice on Solaris 11

LibreOffice on Solaris 11 is available now from the build repository/IPS-publisher "localhosts11". Solaris 11.3 Users can set the publisher according to "Quicklinks" from the menu on the top right. Solaris 11.2 Users with no SRU installed have to upgrade to 11.3 (you want this!) or wait a moment until packages with relaxed requirements are uploaded. Please comment and spread the work!

In a hurry? Go to: http://sfe.opencsw.org/quickrepolinks

I promise, one day there will be someone volunteering and re-write this article for you.

Update 20150710: The build machine for OI Hipster is running, the setup for the repository follows shortly. Once available, I'll post this on this blog. (Done! It is now online!)

About SFE Packages for SPARC CPU - Build Zone?

  • Posted on: 17 January 2016
  • By: tomww

Dear friends of SFE,

if you would like to have me building packages for the SPARC CPUs, then this is only one step away. Only make a SPARC build zone available to me. Well it's probably not that easy. As spec files generally are written in a way where you can build them on Intel and SPARC CPUs, the problem is today, that I have no recent SPARC hardware available to run such builds.

NewsFlash - Automatic Builds Resumed

Dear friends of SFE,

I've resumed the automatic builds for SFE packages on target OS distributions Oracle Solaris 11 (TM), OpenIndiana (Hipster) and OmniOS. Solaris 12 and OpenIndiana OI151a8/a9 will follow soon.

You can book the RSS feeds of the IPS repository for your OS distribution here: http://sfe.opencsw.org/rss-feeds-for-all . This is useful e.g. on your mobile device to get notified if new packages or rebuilt packages appear.

Update 20151031: Packages uploaded! \o/

Upgrade your Solaris to 11.3, then do "pfexec pkg install -v libreoffice4-desktop-int".

OTN Users of S11.2 GA (no extra SRU!) need to wait or better upgrade to S11.3 - you *really* want this. ==(click on the headline to see the full article)

NewsFlash - Libreoffice work ongoing

Update 20151024: [Solved OIHipster] pfexec pkg update -v consolidation/userland/userland-incorporation@0.5.11,5.11-2015.0.2.0:20151023T185528Z #(or newer!)
pfexec pkg uninstall g++/icu g++/boost
(update) pfexec pkg uninstall pkg://openindiana.org/developer/gcc-48
pfexec pkg install -v libreoffice4
This should give you now a correct install for libreoffice. Alex from OI-Hipster removed the forced dependency for the g++/icu and g++/boost packages, they aren't longer in use for OIH

NewsFlash - Updating Solars 11 build machine to 11.2 - Update OpenSSL 1.0.0 to 1.0.1 with ec.h ecdsa.h - for nettle samba

  • Posted on: 2 October 2015
  • By: tomww

Update 20151021 Upgrade to 11.2 completed. I had to uninstall a few SFE packages (gnu-getopt, mtr) and fix grub2 bootloader.
Update 20151020 Upgrade ongoging, I had to fix a broken disk first

I'm planning to update the autobuild machine for Solaris from Version 11.0 to 11.2.

The consequences will be, that new packages and packages which get rebuilt will require you to
update your Solaris copy to at least version 11.2.

Totally Thrilled: LibreOffice 4.4.5.2 for OpenIndiana Hipster

  • Posted on: 11 August 2015
  • By: tomww
LibreOffice 4.4.5.2 for OpenIndiana Hipster is now in SFE spec-files-extra! Other OS-Distro will follow!

(Update: For now, please start Libreoffice with: /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/soffice -writer )

http://sfe.opencsw.org/sites/sfe.opencsw.org/files/field/image/SFElibreo...

I'm totally thrilled! Burning 10 hours of CPU time and what is the result?

We have LibreOffice 4.4.5.2 now in SFE!

What does that mean? You can build it on your own or use the ready built binary IPS-package (expect the package to be up before Friday 14th Aug 2015)
