Eratta: Realised after making ISOs that the publisher is still sticky.  Will see if this is easily fixable or just drop in the next ISO respin.

You can get ISOs, the full repo or just pkg update from a previous version (But not from b134 which will be fixed in the next release).

Note that the prestable builds are now being pushed to - if you have the /prestable repo set ( please run this command to switch back to /dev:

pkg set-publisher -g -G


Enjoy, JT

  2. How close are we to SPARC release, so there will be an alternative on legacy UltraSPARC (and hopefully newer) platforms?

    Looking for the next Red Hat for the Telco & Managed Services Industries - under SPARC.
