OpenIndiana Hipster 2016.04 and illumos – OpenSolaris

OpenIndiana

22/04/2016 – The OpenIndiana project, which is a continuation of OpenSolaris, has released a new version of the community-maintained operating system. The new release offers a number of improvements to package management and includes several package updates to such desktop applications as Firefox, Thunderbird and VLC. “New nlipkg zone brand was introduced, which behaves like old ipkg brand (i.e. it doesn’t check child and parent images for consistency). It’s possible to convert ipkg zone to nlipkg one. To do so, install system/zones/brand/nlipkg, change zone’s brand to nlipkg and remove /var/pkg/linked inside zone. Closed sysidtool which could be used to set initial system parameters on first boot and initialize zone’s configuration was replaced with sysding. All other packages from closed admin incorporation were also removed…

Kris Moore has announced the launch of a new stable PC-BSD release. The project’s latest version, PC-BSD 10.3, is intended to be the final release in the project’s 10.x branch and is based on FreeBSD 10.3. PC-BSD 10.3 uses the FreeBSD boot loader with GRUB offered as an optional alternative. UEFI support has been improved in the system installer and the operating system ships with Lumina 0.8.8 as one of the available desktop environments. “The PC-BSD team is pleased to announce the availability of 10.3-RELEASE! This is currently planned to be the last maintenance release in the 10.X series, and we are currently working hard on the upcoming 11.0. A very special thanks to all the developers, QA, translation and documentation teams for helping to make this release possible.” PC-BSD is available in two editions, the desktop edition and the TrueOS edition for servers.

FreeBSD 10.3 – The third release of the stable/10 branch

freebsd

The FreeBSD Release Engineering Team is pleased to announce the availability of FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE. This is the third release of the stable/10 branch, which improves on the stability of FreeBSD 10.2-RELEASE and introduces some new features. Some of the highlights: The UEFI boot loader received several improvements: It now follows /boot/config and /boot.config files, multi-device boot support works and command line arguments are parsed. Additionally, its framebuffer driver has been enhanced with GOP (Graphics Output Protocol) and UGA (Universal Graphics Adapter) handling, allowing to set the current graphics mode on systems using one of these methods. Moreover, ZFS boot capability has been added to the UEFI boot loader, including support for multiple ZFS Boot Environments (BEs), e. g. those provided by sysutils/beadm…

P.S.

Creating a bootable USB key using a Un*x-like system:

    Some older systems may not be able to boot from USB keys or require
    changing boot priority.  Check your BIOS settings if you run into
    problems.

    First, you will need to obtain a local copy of the bootable filesystem
    image miniroot59.fs or install59.fs as described above.
    You should use the signify(1) and sha256(1) commands to verify
    the integrity of the images with the SHA256.sig file on the mirror site.

    Next, use the dd(1) utility to copy the file to the USB storage device.
    The command would likely be, under OpenBSD:
        dd if=miniroot59.fs of=/dev/rsdNc bs=1m

    where N is the device number.  You can find the correct device number
    by checking dmesg(8) when inserting the media.

    If you are using another operating system, you may have to adapt
    this to conform to local naming conventions for the USB key and
    options suitable for copying to a "raw" disk image.  The key
    issue is that the device name used for the USB key *must* be one
    that refers to the correct block device, not a partition or
    compatibility mode, and the copy command needs to be compatible
    with the requirement that writes to a raw device must be in
    multiples of 512-byte blocks.  The variations are endless and
    beyond the scope of this document.

    If you're doing this on the system you intend to boot the USB key on,
    copying the image back to a file and doing a compare or checksum
    is a good way to verify that the USB key is readable and free of
    read/write errors.
