I remind you, that you can pkg freeze entire to stay with this 
particular snapshot.

Snapshot notes:

Read at least about xorg video drivers update, Intel video cards issue 
and dropping Studio C++ libraries. On deesktop you also would like to 
remove  /etc/(amd64/)gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules .

UPDATE: New FF37 pkg uploaded, Flash Plugins 9/10/11.x ... do work now inside a gcc compiled Firefox now!

 <at>  <at>  <at>  <at>  <at> UPDATE <at>  <at>  <at>  <at>  <at> : Flash Plugin 9/10/11.x 
... works now inside this gcc compiled Firefox!
That's a complete Novum. This took another tough week
of work night and day and night.
Nobody has ever achieved this before.

It was tested and is known to work with:
(instabilities and freezes related to videos that are in a too new format can always happen, but are not
related to this port, while flash is closed src and I can only take their bins and make them work in FF as good
as technically possible)

BTW: Tell me a good reason why I should upload the src ...
(6 still unpaid weeks hard fulltime work for about 100 EUR "donations" all together  .....)

If OI needs "src code developers, hey: OpenSXCE also needs them (beyond myself).
OpenSXCE is based on MartUX which was born in 2006, almost 2 years before Sun-Indiana.
Who and what is OI (other than a re-branded BeleniX)?????

Attention: On all newer Illumos based Distros _except_ OpenSXCE you probably need some loading order
nonsense to get the Flash-Plugin 11.x initializing itself rather than crashing.

p.s.   I posted this last update here only, because I promised the 3 persons who donated a bit last week, to get
Flash working for them.
DONE.

EFI boot and also Xorg version vs. removal of 32bit modules

EDIT: Sorry again for the earlier html crap. It is 6:32am (after a long OpenSXCE night) and this html pain
here on gmx.de webmailer is something that didn't need to be explicitly disabled for every emailuntil
recently, annoying.

Also reving up intel and radeon too high (KMS-only).
Back in 2013 I spent months backporting the then most recent S12 X11-gate to /usr/X11 plus to AMD64 _and_
IA32, which brought me to the conclusion, that Xorg xserver 1.12.2 is the way to go for the next years.
Once I had described these things in detail, but my blog contained to much politics and I eventually deleted
the entire thing.

 
All such things would require extensive responses.
But I thing I neither want to provide them, nor they would be welcome.

Fact is, we have different approaches (totally) in every important key question.
And maybe that's good.

I have EFI booting since last November and use Grub2 and a much newer slim_install checkout for it.
This was a big achievement back then, but I didn't complete the backport from IPS to SVR4/pkgutil.
However: I do have it working in my test env. All too new deps (requiring Oracle-only functionality) can be
replaced with what we have on snv_147!!! That was the toughest part.
Now I see your src and I'm scratching my head, why I chose the most difficult route.

Probably it is good to have two (completely) different distros, that offers more choice.
I must also say I'm glad to see so much key activity from Alexander Pyhalov .

Well, let's continue this thread after I finally have the long delayed OpenSXCE2014.11 ready my way.
Afterwards - I promise - we can have a fair technical comparison.

 

 
Regards from East-Berlin

[CFT] Need new glib2 testers

I've just published updated glib2 (2.43.4) package in my test repository 
- http://buildzone.oi-build.r61.net:1000/

Need testers for library/glib2 .

As always, your test systems should run up-to-date Hipster.

Re: [developer] HEADS UP: illumos supports booting from EFI-labeled disks now, including large disks and whole-disk vdevs

Dan McDonald писал 01.03.2015 20:58:
> Are these mods to Caiman?  Can you share?
> 
> Thanks,
> Dan
> 

Hello.
I'd like to get some reviews, testing and perhaps assistance on the 
following code - https://github.com/pyhalov/slim_source/tree/efi_install

These are modifications to OI text installer which allow installation on 
EFI-labeled disks.
Note, it's more proof of concept code, which needs further cleanup and 
testing.

What is tested and should be working:
Default (whole_root) installation on EFI-labeled disk
Default (whole_root) installation on empty disk (creates EFI-labeled 
disk)

What is known to be broken:
slice management inside partitions on x86 (explicitly disabled for now)

What is likely to be broken (not-tested):
- non whole-root installation
- any other installation method :)

Terminology 0.8.0 patches

Hi,
Just a note about terminology, Enlightenment's (best) terminal application.

FYI, terminology's developer Boris Faure just committed a set of patches [1] against 0.8.0 to fix several bugs on Solaris/Illumos: the next release 0.8.1 will thus be functional on OpenIndiana without resorting to patches in oi-userland.

I set up access to a build zone with X11 forward on my workstation to allow developers to port and to test their fixes.
Lack of access to machines running OI discourage developers to make their application ported to Illumos.
Do you think something can be done about it ?
Best,

Aurelien

PS: I am off for the week but will fix the stalled pull requests in oi-userland when I am back.

Oh and I sent previous message too early:

Deleting everything under ~/.gconf/apps/panel/applets/ had no affect on 
freezing X and  VTs when logging with account I regularly used before 
update to 20141010.

But I managed to have nwam-manager GUI giving core dump and restarting X 
on another account, on 20141010, while logging in normally on another..

It could be interesting to put an archive of that account contents. 
Where could be suitable place to paste larger (ZIP) files?
