RE: About OpenDarwin shutting down.

The only constant being change, life goes on.
I sympathize with this site closing up shop, that this community is drying up but not to dwell.

I have a server colocated in a datacenter in Michigan, with numerous gigs of storage and plenty of bandwidth.
If everyone or anyone is interested, I would be more than willing to donate these resources indefinitely, free of charge to keep things going with Open Darwin as long as possible...

If only to keep an official repository of projects that might disappear into the ether... that shouldn't happen, especially in the open source community.  For this code, that can be used by developers in the future to avoid reinventing the wheel, it is the nature of open source, it should remain available.

Let me know.  Where should I start?

Post Setup Startup Issue (launchd)

First after installation (OpenDarwin 8), 3 files were missing and Darwin
dropped me into a shell
The files were :
/etc/group
/etc/master.passwd
/etc/shells

I copied these files from the private directory after mounting / since
the filesystem was in a Read-Only MODE

After this /etc/rc and some other files were shown missing which were
added. Finally after reboot I got the message that the below files were
missing and I didn't even got a shell so that I would edit the rc file
to avoid detection of other files, viz :

/var/cron/tabs
/etc/crontab
/var/spool/postfix/maildrop
/etc/xinetd.d
/var/log/CDIS.custom

SCPreferencesCommitChanges() failed: Configuration daemon session not
active

"/usr/sbin/configd"[nnnn]:  exited abnormally: Illegal instruction
"/usr/sbin/configd"[nnnn]:  exited abnormally: Bus error

launchd doesn't allow me to login. :(

can't find package Pextlib 1.0

I've just installed DarwinPorts 1.3.1 on my MacBook Pro (with OS  
10.4.8). When I try to run 'port' from a terminal, I get:

can't find package Pextlib 1.0
     while executing
"package_native require Pextlib 1.0"
     ("eval" body line 1)
     invoked from within
"eval package_native $args"
     (procedure "package" line 14)
     invoked from within
"package require Pextlib 1.0"
     (procedure "dportinit" line 311)
     invoked from within
"dportinit ui_options global_options global_variations"
Error: /opt/local/bin/port: Failed to initialize ports system, can't  
find package Pextlib 1.0

Can anyone help me with this?

Fwd: Apple Opens Up: Mac OS Forge


Hi All-

While this email from Ernie was directed at someone else on the  
darwin-dev <at> apple list, it is still pertinent to the discussion at  
hand:  effectively, sit tight while they finish up the WWDC.

Ernie specifically says:  "The urgent priority is making sure we have  
a home for those projects needing to transition off OpenDarwin..."

Perhaps this is a good sign for all of those OpenDarwin.org projects  
with no home!

About OpenDarwin shutting down.

Hello!
I would like to ask what will happen with OpenDarwin? Where will be moved
the sources and sub-projects? I can donate a 700 Mb web space for the
project for the first year but how much big are the sources?

Regards,
Svetoslav.

About OpenDarwin shutting down

Hello!
I would like to say my opinion about opendarwin shutting down. If the
OpenDarwin kernel will stay alive it can be organized as a independent
operating system like many others. The kernel can be integrated in
Debian system. On that base are made NexentaOS (opensolaris kernel and
debian environment), gnu/netbsd (netbsd kernel and debian environment).
So, why have not to do the same? To keep alive part of darwin. Darwin
kernel in Debian environment and packages. These brings a lot of quality
open source software and very big interest from many developers and
contributors.

Regards,
Svetoslav.

Waiting until WWDC would not have accomplished anything.  If you have
read some of my commentaries on the state of things, you know this is
not somthing that will be "fixed" overnight.  There is no possible
announcement or discussion that could happen at WWDC that would change
OpenDarwin's fate.  You can't make up 6 years of regression and
distrust at one event.  Given that this is the first WWDC that does
not have an Open Source Feedback Forum since 2000, that can be taken
as an indication of Apple's desire for communication on the subject.

The only thing waiting until WWDC to announce OD's closure would
have done is possibly steal some of Apple's thunder.  While that may
be temporarily gratifying, it would accomplish nothing.  We are
done, I am done.  Closing OpenDarwin is not a publicity stunt or a
bargaining chip.  It is an announcement of a sad fact, and an 
admission that 6 years of my, and other's, involvement has been a 
failure or worse, contributed to a marketing scheme.  This is not 
something to be defiantly proud of or gloat over.  We're done, we'd 
like to move on and to the best of our ability not screw over the 
people that helped us.
