    why not make "Dev Alpha Internal release" a "Dev Alpha release" in line with the "more eyeballs" adage.

  2. May 02, 2011

    Anonymous

    Definitely make a "respin" (or several weekly "spins") like the recent April 2011 oi_148b as most of us will never compile and build things from scratch.

    I personally will not load and test oi_151 until I can acress easy to install ISOs, better yet with a upgrade like BFU

    Will the ISC DHCP Client and Server be integrated in OpenIndiana to provide full IPv6 client and server support?

    Does OpenIndiana support IPv6 Cryptographically Generated Addressing?

    1. May 14, 2011

      I have an IPS package for the ISC DHCP server that's tested and working.
      All I need is an IPS repository where I can submit it.

      I haven't tried to build the client, because the ISC document says it
      doesn't work on Solaris and says that
      the Solaris client works correctly.

    Does b151 come with Bind 9.7.X ?

      9.7 doesn't appear to be in the broken packages at http://pkgsrc-repo.uk.openindiana.org/reports/last/report.html so chances are you will be able to install when 151 is (finally (smile)) released

        Yes the pkgsrc repo got bind-9.6.3, bind-9.7.3 and bind-9.8.0, but remember you have to have pkgsrc installed (bootstraped). For more details on how to bootstrap pkgsrc go to https://www.illumos.org/projects/worsoe.

        I bough fluendo codecs like year ago, and I can say that I'm very satisfied.

        If the necessary libraries were included in OpenIndiana then VLC could be built easily, so Fluendo would not be required. The workaround is to install VirtualBox and run VLC within a client, not ideal but it works.
        For OpenIndiana to get traction on the desktop it needs to facilitate the porting of desktop apps which includes VLC.

      Can someone verify this ?

      Also if I have a ZFS root mirror is there a procedure to "break" one side upgrade and if all goes well re-mirror, or if things go bad fallback to the saved mirror

        I'm not sure what your first question is. Yes, you can do:

        pfexec pkg refresh --full

        if you need to I suppose.

        With respect to breaking the mirror and upgrading one side, this seems to be unnecessarily complex. OI has boot environments managed by beadm. You can make your changes in an alternative boot environment and if there are problems you can roll back by activating an earlier working boot environment. There should normally be no need to unmirror the disk to allow you to recover from a failed grade. The "pkg image-update" command uaually creates an activates a new boot environment automatically when you're doing an upgrade. Do a "man beadm" for more information on managing boot environments.

    How does OI 151 differ from Oracle's? Aside from license, which I don't care about, what would make me choose OI_151 over Express?

    1. Jun 13, 2011

      OpenIndiana is open-source, allowing you to examine the code should you wish.

      Its free, and so are future patches and fixes.

      We sometimes have different focuses, for example Oracle have decided to not support 32 bit X, we haven't. Our ZFS supports aclmode, which has been removed/changed in S11X.

      Its a open development model, if their is something that you think should be done differently, you are more than welcome to join in.

      S11 Express has some features we don't (at the moment) like ZFS encryption and I believe better support of Intel GPUs. If these features are useful, then S11 Express is something to consider.

      For many the license is of course a big difference, particularly in that 'go commercial' ability, as I understand it you can only develop or play for free with S11E and then have to pay. OI 151 you don't, its costs you 0 now and will cost you 0 if you decide to install it on a 8 processor monster server.

    Hi, just wondering if there is any performance difference between the PCFS driver in OI and OSE11? I am running OSE11 as a home server and the USB performance is really poor (1.5MB - 3.0 MB/s).

    I also wanted to mention that I am happy to see that the OI community seems to be doing well (wink)

    Remarks/questions have been testing oi_151

    1. after install documentation links to Oracle site, is this wanted or just temporary?
    2. the install I did was on a box that showed no hardware issues at all, just sweetness. Does it help or harm (y)our cause if I submit to the hardware database because for me it is not clear if this is from OpenIndiana or OpenSolaris or Solaris Oracle. Might it benefit all perhaps?
    3. documentation e.g. how to set up repositories needs a little more explanation imho to get near-newbies up to speed.
    4. how can users help you? Buying CD's? Will the OpenSolaris Bible get an update in the future?

    Regards

    from Oracle's S11E License Terms "We may audit your use of the Programs." "The Programs may communicate configuration data to Oracle." oh well... is theirs... the can do whatever they want... like James Gosling said: "Just about anything I could say that would be accurate and honest would do more harm than good." I truly beleive OpenIndiana will eventually become one of the most widely used OS on the desktop. I'm downloading 151 right now...

        You can pretty much guarantee it'll put a dent in Solaris. Look at what happened with LibreOffice. Given that Solaris is now chargeable, I expect a lot of enterprise customers will seriously consider migrating to System-P/HP/Itanium and AIX, Linux or HP-UX.

        For the home users, students and smaller ex-sun shops; Oracle's pricing scheme will self-defeat itself. OpenIndiana's improved hardware support and free patching should put it way above the parent, just like OpenSolaris did to Solaris 10 in many environments.

          Yes they are. It is a fact. I am a division technical lead for a program w/ about 100 sites worldwide. Each site consists of about 9-15 enterprise grade servers.

          Historically it has all been Solaris, all on Sun hardware. Over the next five years we will replace about 70% of it with Linux and other unix-like OSs. Needless to say, the upgrade budget each year for the hardware alone is $10's of millions.

          However, the impetus is not directly the chargeability of Solaris. But the issue is related.

          The user base for solaris, and unix generally (as opposed to unix-like), is shrinking relative to other similar options like linux. While we like the stability and patch support of Solaris, other corporate-backed 'nixes, they are all highly dependent on the open-source community for usability features.

          We spend the majority of our budget on patching and system-integration. Putting together custom-developed system software involves integrating hundreds of software components, in the right versions, in a timely-enough way that they will not become security/modernization risks by install time.

          So, the more closed the corporate version of the OS is, the harder it is to find dependency software that can be immediately installed.

          Instead we have to do a lot of customizing. It is more secure that way. It is faster that way. It is more stable that way. It is massively more expensive and time consuming that way.

          Shortly integration is eating our development budget.

          Similarly, modern OS features have been relatively slow getting into the corporate unixes. How long have rpms and other IPS-like features been around? How long has it taken to get them into unix? How long has it taken to get off UFS?

          This stuff sounds trivial - like fsck'ing a disk. But you multiply the sites and servers and it means wasting a lot of administration budget to do all those 'trivial' tasks.

          The issue isn't directly chargeability. The issue is integrate-ability. And the more closed the OS, whether due to chargeability or other reasons, the bigger the integration obstacle.

    I must say that I am thoroughly disappointed by the Stable Release of oi-2011Q1 here. OpenIndiana should also drop 32bit support to have a 64bit only server distribution because for goodness sakes, even a $30 Celeron these days is 64bit and a $40 Pentium has Vt-x support for 64bit virtual machines. Running 32bit for ZFS file system is simply silly, and just like Oracle going 64bit only, OpenIndiana should focus more on 64bit transition to have a smaller iso image(saves 30%+ bandwidth)

    It also drops stupid issues like these: 1161 oi_151 32 bits nVidia driver freezes the machine.

      That would be disappointing for people like me, who use legacy hardware with open source operating systems rather than spending £30,000 a year on servers. Drop x86, and I would be able to install this on one... t.. No, that would be no hardware. The only 64 bit boxes I have are my personal laptop - Macbook 2009, Sun Ultra 1 (UltraSPARC 1 143), Sun Fire 280R (UltraSPARC IIIi 900x2) and IBM System P 510, with Power5+ DCM.

      As much as 64bit technology is the future, it sure as hell is not dead yet, especially for the home user. I hope to still be using Pentium III class systems in 2015. Power consumption drop is an advantage, but environmentally speaking - sending your old server to a south asian beach counteracts the benefits.

        If you still want to run a Pentium III and not willing to spend $30 on a Celeron, why not run DOS 3.1 instead? Send your gears to Zimbabwe, because the power you save by not running old gear pretty much pays for the new stuff.

        Yes and no.

        Yes, stretching hardware life as much as possible as possible is good because next hardware generation will always be better. Even Intel (some) Atoms will have ECC some day. Once electronics gets beyond 10 years life time the reliability gets to the point where the most precious resource (MY TIME) gets wasted.

        No : there are limitations for the disk size on 32 bit (1GB disks) that would need to be addressed (pun intended). That effort is a waste of resources if it means Foreverware really takes forever to get here, and resource are scarce...

        (I will not lecture here on power consumption, because you already seem to have given it quite some thought...)

          And adding to my 'no' above absolutely no fatELF please :

          There was some talk of having fat binaries (x86 and x86-64 in one blob) as an experimental feature : fatELF. PLEASE DON'T go there : fat binaries were a transitory solution for a company changing processor architectures (twice) and with some serious resources. A certain company which has 11,261 million cash, comma not decimal point mind you.

          I'm confused. 1GB Disks on 32bit? Are we talking install CD's? Ramdisks? What?

          The advantage of 32bit hardware is that it was still being purchased in both the server and desktop varieties till 2006. So the last 32bit hardware is starting to come into the low end supply chain, and you can pick up your choice of fast high end machine for under $100. Thanks for the sitting out on the power consumption... The way it calculates, the carbon footprint of recycled and hungry servers is pretty good against newer gear, especially if you want the enterprise features and don't care about compute speed.

          But anyway, the atom will die before Intel start putting EEC RAM on consumer gear.

          Sorry, to address the reliability part - My last four P3 servers are all still working with no system failures (the cases are a bit battered) Three have been given away when I consolidated the SAN to a single 7U dual Xeon4 server, but it wasn't a case of speed or reliability, just I couldn't get a Fibre Array with hardware support worth a damn off of Windows. My media centre, speaker and print server has 128MB ram and can play 720P video - has done for two years. My laptop has been running since 1998, my cellphone since 1999 and my PDA since 2004.

          My iPad on the other hand, has been through three units in less than a year, I've had to rebuild the power supply in my 2007 SecurID appliance, my 2006 tablet had four logic board failures before I relegated it to webserver duties (Fujitsu literally stopped answering my calls) and I can't get this Power5+ server to boot at all. That's before I mention my BBC micro, RiscPC or Amiga collection. - Fact is, smaller process IC's are more prone to failure according to the laws of physics, and to be frank, the main computer companies don't give a crap how stuff's put together these days. I sound very cynical for a 22 year old, but frankly...

    this may be a stupid question but, why is openindiana not using Gnome 2.32?

    Hi, does it support D-Link DWA-125 wi-fi adapter? Adapter is based on Ralink RT3070 chipset.

    Since I don't have an account here or at Illumos I don't know how to report this so I'll just note it here.

    When you do a package image-update you get a message suggesting that you review the release notes posted at:

    http://docs.sun.com/doc/821-1479

    This takes you to the Oracle Solaris 11 Express documentation instead of to an Open Indiana we site. It seems that this reference needs to get changed.

    Since this page is actively being changed, I presume the oi repositories are being actively updated. However, the isos hasn't been reved since the beginning of June. Is there going to be an RC candidate or is there going to be a "STABLE" popping into existence?

      A few 'showstopping' bugs need full resolution beforehand (as noted). Also, a bit of testing of the latest enhancements.
      Give it time, and you can use dev-il IPS repo for recent updates.

    yep, solaris has a long history of robustness and stability as compared to linux.

    I too am want to say "Solaris ROCKS" but obviously I don't give the second statement about Linux any credence.

    As to "grow up", way to start a pointless set of "flame" posts, if you didn't notice This is a OpenIndiana release page.

    Seriously someone can be a fan of Solaris (plus forks and derivatives of open Solaris), it's also okay to be a fan of Linux. I prefer Solaris myself, yet I am also comfortable with Linux and actually use it in production in cases where Solaris is inferior for the task that I need to solve.

    However I am not a fan of Oracle and their complete reversal and total lack of commitment to OpenSolaris. So I cheer the contributors to OpenIndiana and Illumos on every step of the way. The success of these projects will expand choice and encourage innovation just ad the success of Linux did and still does.

    First of all, congratulations for this nice release (wink)

    I just came across a problem which might deserve consideration for the upcoming stable release:

    1. If I power on my notebook with an external (larger) monitor connected, the graphics starts in clone mode, i.e. sub-optimal resolution on the external screen. Desired behavior would be to disable the built-in display and let the user switch as required.
    2. Switching displays with SHIFT-F5 works nicely, but only within the gnome desktop (i.e. after a user has actually logged in). It will revert to clone mode after logging out. The goal would be to allow switching display modes at any time (also in GDM), and have the system remember settings across login-logout cycles.

    Is there a possibility to work around these issues in the current release?

    Anyone knows how to make MacOX Lion able to browse cifs/smb shares on OI server?
    Previous versions of MacOS dont have this problem.
    Any solution to make Lion connect to OI cifs ?

      I installed netatalk which has distinct advantages over CIFS for Mac OS/X. Lion has no problem with shares using this.

        Does it support AD authentication?
        I have cifs server with AD integration.
        How to configure netatalk to use authentication thru AD?

    This may be a dumb question, but I cannot figure out how to start KVM guests in OpenIndiana.  I've successfully built a NetBSD guest, but after I halted it, I can't start it because I'm unsure how.  `virsh` doesn't exist so I can't use that as I normally would.

    It will run as a non-X11 guest too, so I don't need to or want to use vncviewer from a remote host.  There must be a way to access the console of the guest from the OpenIndiana host.

    Any ideas?
