Hi friends of illumos!
Episode No. 2 of the podcast "friends of illumos" is out!
After a weekend packed with podcast cutting and postprocessing I finally managed to upload the new episode. I decided to give https://podigee.com a try and uploaded the new episode FOI002 as well as the older one FOI001. I think it will take a moment, until the subdomain for foi is established. You can listen or register the RSS feed here: https://foi.podigiee.io
Hi all, SFE is still alive.
The Internet-Connetion suffered a bit from the bad weather conditions during the last weeks.
Today I switched to a different uplink using a GRE tunnel. Just in case you see some issues with the package repositories, then please drop me a note on email@example.com and let me know what is the error you can see.
For Solaris, OmniOSce, OpenIndiana:
* added clamav current version
* added clamsmtp letting postfix scan for virus
* updated mutt 1.14.7
* working on move to github
* builds for omnios-r151034 have started
* opened github spec-files-extra
FOI001 - Friends of Illumos - @FOSDEM 2019 in Brussels
At the @FOSDEM conference on February 3rd 2019 in Brussels there was the idea to make a podcast "Friends of Illumos" and talk about the achievements and whats to be done.
You can find all episodes on:
* work has started for SPARC Packages on Solaris 11.3 / Solaris 11.4 - drop me a note if you need some packages first
* attending FOSDEM conference in Bruessels on Feb 1st/2nd - visit the illumos table
* working on the release iof the first episode of the posdcast "friends of illumos"
Visit the illumos table at @FOSDEM in Bruessels, Belgium, Febuary 1st & 2nd 2020, Building K.
If you are a Solaris, an OpenIndiana Hipster or OmniOS user, you'll find the illumos table full of really nice people that are very happy to have a chat with you. And I believe you can get illumos stickers too.
PS: Still searching for an intro music for the podcast. If you have an idea for music that matches with this technical podcast, that would help speeding up the release!
Dear Users of SunOS (Solaris | OpenIndiana | OmniOSce | SmartOS),
would you like to meet at Chaos Communication Congress #36C3 in Leipzig this year?
We could talk about the cool things you're doing on the OS, with ZFS, with bhyve, KVM or cool services you've assembled. Or just talk about life.
We even could record a nice podcast. That would be "friends of illumos #2" then. You don't need large preparation for that, just your ideas (sure, you have plenty!), your voice and your mind :). Recording of the first episode has been very much fun!
Read how you can setup a local build environment and compile packages yourself from scratch, by using spec-files.
I've written a draft version of a setup guide for compiling packages yourself. A reason for compiling yourself might be you want to develop your own spec files, or you want to verify builds for more security or every other reason of your choice.
My personal most appreciated reason for you having a build environment would be that you plan to contribute to the repository of spec-files and improve the number and / or quality of the provided software packages!.
Only a quick note:
Samba 4.10.6 now runs nicely on Solaris 11.3, Solaris 11.4, OmniOSce, Openindiana Hipster as Active Domain Controller.
I'll post setup instructions in a few weeks (drop me anote if you are in a hurry!), so you can replay the setup of an Active Directory Controller running in one Zone and add a second zone with the fileserver that joins the AD. ZFS is configured to support ACLs necessary to grant permissions by the RSAT tools, Group Policy Objects and Roaming Profiles (on Windows).
mutt 1.12.0 and 1.12.1
update KVM for OmniOSce builds from r151022-LTS to r151030-LTS soon
samba 4.10.4 in testing on S11.3
Update: Finally I've got my ticket for 35C3 - I'm looking forward to see you there! On congress you can reach me on DECT phone by dialing extention "tomw" or 8669 on your phone. You know you can reach the extensions as well from the outside by prepending the congress phone number (will be announced) in case you don't have a DECT or GSM extension registered.
Long time no see - back working on the blog site: update underlaying server
Quick note, more updates on this article will appear soon.
Now available: pdftk for Solaris 11!
pdftk 2.02 from http://pdflabs.com ist now available for Solaris 11 (version 11.3)!
You can merge, split or watermark PDFs from the command line.
To build the package it was necessary to enhance the GCC 4.9.4 package with the Java compiler "gcj".
For OpenIndiana Hipster the compile run is is not yet clean (iconv symbols missing).
Update: The current (former backup) site got improved, so it will be the main site for now. 20181105

Dear SFE Users!
Once a service goes down, you recognize how important the service is to people.
The backup site and _ALL_ IPS Repositories are online and operational. The domain name sfe.opencsw.org points to this new IP-Address, so no changes needed on your side.
