Dear readers, here is a draft version of upgrading OpenIndiana Hipster to the lastest version and then add the SFE publisher to install packages. Please read and if you already have access to the blog by username, *edit* this text to make it better. This is highly appreciated! I would prefer to let you improve this text, while I try to improve the packages. Deal?
Currently these packages are available in the localhosts11 experimental publisher for Solaris 11.
Packages of special interest might be: netatalk postfix dovecot vlc mpd, perl modules
Update: 2016-03-16 For Solaris 11 the perl-modules are uploaded, for OI-Hipster and OmniOS I still need to make some more fixes to get some of the modules compile (mostly those with C-code involved)
Currently I'm preparing a bunch of perl modules, some of them especially for perlwiki.
If you want more perl modules added, please drop me a note so I can create the spec files with the handy script experimental/make_perl_cpan_settings.pl and then test the spec files with experimental/testbuildperlmodule

Questions? Meet #SFE at #FOSDEM
Build a webstack in SFE for Solaris, OpenIndiana (Hipster) and OmniOS.
Which packages would you like to see?
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!
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.
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.
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 20160107] LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 is ready, go to http://sfe.opencsw.org/libreoffice-22.214.171.124
Hi friends of SFE!
Currently I work on Libreoffice 126.96.36.199 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.
Did you know, that the Japan OpenSolaris Usergroup maintains a repository of spec files on their own?
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.
(Update: For now, please start Libreoffice with: /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/soffice -writer )
I'm totally thrilled! Burning 10 hours of CPU time and what is the result?
We have LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 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)
Newsflash: The Build-Machine for S12 has been updated from build 66 to build 79 and the complete set of SFE packages is currently rebuilt. SFEgcc is now at 4.8.5 (with LINK_LIBGCC_SPEC)
Update 20150810: the rebuild works, one highlight will be boost 0.58 and anoter highly desired package will hopefully work (wou'll have to guess which one can be based in the supporting libs snet to svn during the past few days)
SFEsamab42.spec is leaving experimental/ soon. It contains support for Active Directory and is currently in testing.
Expect the binary packages to appear during the next one or two weeks (approx until Aug 14th 2015).
Do you have any comments or questions? Use the comment function, drop me an email or use IRC on irc.freenode.org
Thanks for using SFE packages and have a nice day!
New OpenVPN package version 2.3.6 uploaded, now uses a patch to better detect the default gateway on SunOS kernels.
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 wish 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!
scribus has been updated to 1.4.5
I think that is really cool to have a DTP layout program on your Solaris / OpenIndiana workstation!
Drop me a note and tell me what you think!
