The main issue is installer. slim_source library libict depends on 
libadmutil and libadmldb from admin incorporation. It seems we have to 
preserve it for now.
On other hand I found CDDL-licensed 
usr/src/cmd/slim-install/svc/live-sysidtool.xml, which I'm going to 
transform to sysidtool manifest. It could be OK as temporary solution, 
but I still dislike our dependency on admin incorporation 

BTW, I could successfully build illumos-gate without 
system/management/product-registry. Perhaps, you can add

diff --git a/usr/src/pkg/manifests/ 
index 15b37a4..2ba0b4d 100644

admin incorporation removal

Hi, all.
I'd like to discuss removal of the whole admin incorporation.

The code is closed and aimed to support initial system/zone 
(also it has some rudiments from Jump Start).

I think we can import something like OmniOS initial-boot service

to do unattended zone/system configuration (this script performs initial 
configuration executing /.initialboot).

The issue which I see is support for /etc/sysidcfg. What do you think?

Evince can't open PDF files with Hipster 2015.0.1.xx branch

On my system, the Evince document viewer is unable to open PDF files with the 2015.0.1.xx branch of Hipster.
Currently booted into 2015.0.1.15003. It says: File type PDF document (application/pdf) is not
supported. I am, however, able to open Postscript (.ps) files.

Hipster update, no network

The last pkg update for hipster leaves me with a standalone machine.  
The bge devices are up but I only see local ( addresses on the 
LAN (bge1, with static address) and the WAN (bge0) doesn't get an ip via 

Rolling back to my previous BE restores functionality.

I'm not sure where to begin debugging.  "dladm show-phys" output looks 
good.  Has something changed for the bge driver or ipadm setup?

I didn't look but I don't remember the tun device showing up.  Could 
this be part of the problem?

FYI, this machine is the router between my ISP and SOHO LAN.  I use the 
tunnel to do IPV6 via hurricane electric.

New Hipster ISOs are available


We are ready to announce new OpenIndiana Hipster 2015.03.30 ISOs.


SHA256 Checksums:


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.


$ cd ~/Downloads
$ wget
$ bunzip2 ./SUNWfirefox37_supports_FlashPlugin__OpenSolaris_snv_130_i386.pkg.bz2
$ su
# pkgrm SUNWfirefox37
# pkgadd -d ./SUNWfirefox37_supports_FlashPlugin__OpenSolaris_snv_130_i386.pkg

FF37 can be started in 3 different ways, either of the following ...

$ /usr/bin/firefox37

$ /usr/lib/firefox37/bin/firefox

or under JDS/Gnome from {Start}->{All Applications}->{Internet}->{Firefox 37 Beta}

# pkgrm SUNWfirefox37

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.

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 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.
