Solaris 11.3 beta: Changes to bundled software packages

With the release of Solaris 11.3 beta, I've gone back and made a new list of changes to the bundled software packages available in the Solaris IPS package repository, as I've done for the Solaris 11.1, Solaris 11.2 beta, and the Solaris 11.2 GA releases.

Oracle packages

Several bundled packages improve integration with other Oracle software. The Oracle Instant Client packages are now in the IPS repo for building software that connects to Oracle databases. MySQL 5.6 has also been added alongside the existing version 5.5 packages.

The Java runtime & developer kits for Java 7 & 8 were updated to new versions, while the Java 6 versions were removed as its support life winds down. The End of Feature Notices for Oracle Solaris 11 warns that Java 7 will be coming out as well in a later release.

Also updated was Oracle Hardware Management Pack (HMP), a set of tools that work with the ILOM, firmware, and other components in Sun/Oracle servers to configure low-level system options. HMP 2.2 was introduced in Solaris 11.2, and Solaris 11.3 now delivers HMP 2.3 packages.

Python packages

Solaris has long included and depended on Python 2. Solaris 11.3 adds Python 3 support for the first time, with the bundling of Python 3.4 and many module packages that work with it. Python 2.7 is still included, as is 2.6 for now, but Python 2 software in Solaris is almost completely switched over to 2.7 now, and Python 2.6 will be obsoleted soon.

A side effect of these changes was a revamping of the naming pattern for Python module packages in IPS - previously most modules delivered a set of packages following the pattern:

  • library/python-2/<module name>
  • library/python-2/<module name>-<for each Python version>
For example, there were three Mako packages, library/python-2/mako, library/python-2/mako-26, library/python-2/mako-27, where the latter two installed the modules built for the named versions of Python, and the first uses IPS conditional dependencies to install the modules for any Python versions that were installed on the system.

In extending this to provide Python 3 modules, it was decided to drop the python major version from the library/python-N prefix, leaving just the version at the end of the module name. Thus in Solaris 11.3, you'll see that the mako packages are now library/python/mako, library/python/mako-26, library/python/mako-27, and library/python/mako-34.

NVIDIA graphics driver packages

NVIDIA has been providing graphics driver packages for Solaris for almost a decade now. As new families and models of graphics cards are regularly introduced, they retire support for older generations from time to time in the new drivers. Support for these models is retained in a legacy driver, but that requires uninstalling the latest version and switching to a legacy branch. Previously that meant installing NVDIA's SVR4 package release instead of IPS, losing the ability to get updates with a simple “pkg update” command.

Now the legacy drivers are also available in IPS packages, which will continue to be updated as necessary for bug fixes and support for new Xorg releases during NVIDIA’s Support timeframes for Unix legacy GPU releases. To switch to the version 340 legacy driver on Solaris 11.3 or the later Solaris 11.2 SRU’s simply run:

  # pkg install --reject driver/graphics/nvidia driver/graphics/nvidiaR340 
and then reboot into the new BE created. For the previous version 304, change the above command to end in nvidiaR304 instead.

Other packages

There are far more changes than I've covered here - fortunately, the engineers who worked on many of these changes have written their own blog posts about them for you to check out:

One more thing... Solaris 11.2 packages

While all these are available now in the Solaris 11.3 beta, many are also available for testing and evaluation on existing Solaris 11.2 systems, when you're ready to upgrade a FOSS package, but not the rest of the OS. This is planned to be an ongoing program, so once Solaris 11.3 is officially released, the evaluation packages will keep moving forward to new versions of many packages. More details are available in a Solaris FOSS blog post and an article in the Solaris 11 OTN community space.

Not all packages are available in the evaluation program though, since some depend on OS changes not in Solaris 11.2. For instance, OpenSSH is not available for Solaris 11.2, since it depends on changes to the existing SunSSH packages that allow for the ssh package mediator to choose which ssh software to use on a given system.

Detailed list of changes

This table shows most of the changes to the bundled packages between the original Solaris 11.2.0 release, the latest Solaris 11.2 support repository update (SRU11, aka 11.2.11, released June 13, 2015), and the Solaris 11.3 beta released today. These show the versions they were released with, and not later versions that may now be available via the new FOSS Evaluation Packages for existing Solaris releases.

As with last time, some were excluded for clarity, or to reduce noise and duplication. All of the bundled packages which didn’t change the version number in their packaging info are not included, even if they had updates to fix bugs, security holes, or add support for new hardware or new features of Solaris.

Solaris 11.2: Changes since beta to bundled software packages

In April, when Solaris 11.2 Beta was released, I posted a list of changes to bundled software packages between Solaris 11.1 & 11.2. Now that the final release of Solaris 11.2 reached General Availability last week, I've gone back to compare the beta release via the GA release.

As you would expect, there are many fewer changes in the three months between beta & GA than in the 18 months before that. Most of the change came from upgrading the OpenStack packages from the Grizzly (2013.1) release to the Havana (2013.2) release, and adding the Swift OpenStack Object Storage components and other packages like Django which the new OpenStack components needed. There are also some general bug fix or security fix updates, such as upgrading OpenSSL from 1.0.1g to 1.0.1h.

One other change that showed up when gathering data for this list was that the Oracle Database 12c prerequisites package was renamed between beta & GA to better match the database naming style - previously it was called group/prerequisite/oracle/oracle-rdbms-server-12cR1-preinstall but is now group/prerequisite/oracle/oracle-rdbms-server-12-1-preinstall. Fortunately, you don't have to type in the whole FMRI to install it, pkg install oracle-rdbms-server-12-1-preinstall is enough.

Detailed list of changes

This table shows most of the changes to the bundled packages between the 11.2 beta released in April, and the 11.2 GA release in July.

As before, some were excluded for clarity, or to reduce noise and duplication. All of the bundled packages which didn’t change the version number in their packaging info are not included, even if they had updates to fix bugs, security holes, or add support for new hardware or new features of Solaris.

Solaris 11.2: Changes to bundled software packages

When Solaris 11.1 came out in October 2012, I posted about the changes to the included FOSS packages. With the publication today of Solaris 11.2 beta, I thought it would be nice to revisit this and see what’s changed in the past year and a half. This time around, I’m including some bundled packages that aren’t necessarily covered by a free software or open source license, but are of interest to Solaris users.

Removing software in updates

Last time I discussed how IPS allowed us to make a variety of changes in update releases much more easily than in the Solaris 10 package system. One of these changes is obsoleting packages, and we’ve done that in a couple rare cases in both Solaris 11.1 and 11.2 where the software is abandoned by the upstream, and we’ve decided it would be worse to keep it around, potentially broken, than to remove it on upgrade.

When we do this, notices will be posted to the End of Features for Solaris 11 web page, alongside the list of features that have been declared deprecated and may be removed in future releases. As you can see there, in Solaris 11.1 the Adobe Flash Player and tavor HCA driver packages were removed.

In Solaris 11.2, three more packages have been removed. slocate was a “secure” version of the locate utility, which wouldn’t show a user any files that they didn’t have permission to access. Unfortunately, this utility was broken by changes in the AST library, and since there is no longer an upstream for it, we decided to follow the lead of several Linux distros and moved to mlocate instead, which is added in this release.

The other two removed packages are both Xorg video drivers - the nv driver for NVIDIA graphics, and the trident driver for old Trident graphics chipsets. Most users will not notice these removals, but if you had manually created an xorg.conf file specifying one of these drivers, you may need to edit it to use the vesa driver instead.

NVIDIA had previously supported the nv open source driver and contributed updates to X.Org to support new chipsets in it, but in 2010, they announced they would no longer do so, and considered nv deprecated, recommending the use of the VESA driver for those who had no better driver to use. While we had continued to ship the nv driver in Solaris, it led to an increasing number of crashes, hangs, and other bugs for which the resolution was to remove the nv driver and use vesa instead, so we are removing it to end those issues. For systems with graphics devices new enough to be supported by the bundled nvidia closed-source driver, this will have no effect. For those with older devices, this will cause Xorg autoconfiguration to load the vesa driver instead, until and unless the user downloads & installs an appropriate NVIDIA legacy driver.

The trident driver was still in Solaris even after we dropped 32-bit support on x86, and years after Trident Microsystems exited the graphics business and sold its graphics product line to XGI, as the Sun Fire V20z server included a Trident chipset for the console video device. Unfortunately, the upstream driver has been basically unmaintained since then, and Oracle has had to apply patches to port to new Xorg releases. Meanwhile, in order to resolve bugs that caused system hangs, the trident driver was modified to not load on V20z systems, which left us shipping an unmaintained driver solely for a system that could not use it, but uses the vesa driver instead, so we decided to remove it as well.

If you had either of these Xorg driver packages installed, then when you update to 11.2, then pkg update will inform you there are release notes for these drivers, to warn you of the possibility you may need to edit your xorg.conf.

System Management Stack

The popular Puppet system for automating configuration changes across machines has been included in Solaris, and updated to support several Solaris features in both the framework and in individual configuration provideers. For instance, configuration changes made via Puppet will be recorded in the Solaris audit logs as part of a puppet session, and Puppet’s configuration file is generated from SMF properties using the new SMF stencil facilities. Providers are included that can configure IPS publishers, SMF properties, ZFS datasets, Solaris boot environments, and a variety of Solaris NIC, VNIC, and VLAN settings.

Another addition is the Oracle Hardware Management Pack (HMP), a set of tools that work with the ILOM, firmware, and other components in Sun/Oracle servers to configure low-level system options. Previously these needed to be downloaded and installed separately, now they are a simple pkg install away, and kept up to date with the rest of the OS.

A collaboration with Intel led to the integration of a Solaris port of Intel’s numatop tool for observing memory access locality across CPUs.

From the open source world, we’ve integrated several tools to allow admins and users to do multiple things at once, including the tmux terminal multiplexer, cssh tool for cluster administration via ssh, and GNU Parallel for running commands in parallel.

Developer Stack

For developers, GNU Compiler Collection (gcc) versions 4.7 & 4.8 are added alongside the previous 3.4 & 4.5 packages, and the gcc packages have been refactored to better allow installing different subsets of compilers. Other updated developer tools include Mercurial 2.8.2, GNU emacs 24.3, pylint 0.25.2, and version 7.6 of the GNU debugger, gdb. Newly added tools for developers include GNU indent, JavaScript Lint, and Python’s pep8.

The Java 8 development kit & runtime environment are both available as well. The default installation clusters will only install Java 7, but you can install the Java 8 runtime with “pkg install jre-8” or get both the runtime & development kits with “pkg install jdk-8”. The /usr/java mediated link, through which all the links in /usr/bin for the java, jar, javac, etc. commands flow will be set by default to the most recent version installed, so installing Java 8 will make that version default. You can see this via “ls -l /usr/java” reporting:

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root   root     15 Apr 23 14:01 /usr/java -> jdk/jdk1.8.0_05
or via “pkg mediator java” reporting:
java         system    1.8     system
If you want to choose a different version to be default, you can manually set the mediator to that version with “pkg set-mediator -V 1.7 java”. Of course, for many operations, you can directly access any installed java version via the full path, such as /usr/jdk/instances/jdk1.8.0/bin/java instead of relying on the /usr/bin symlinks.

One caveat to be aware of is that Java 8 for Solaris is only provided as 64-bit binaries, as all Solaris 11 and later machines are running 64-bit now. This means that any JNI modules you rely on will need to be compiled as 64-bit and any programs that try to load Java must be 64-bit. There is also no 64-bit version provided of either the Java plugin for web browsers, or the Java Webstart program for starting Java client applications from web pages.

Desktop Stack

Most of the changes in the desktop stack in this release were updates needed to fix security issues, and are mostly covered on the Oracle Third Party Vulnerability Resolution Blog.

There were some feature updates in the X Window System layers of the desktop stack though – most notably the Xorg server was upgraded from 1.12 to 1.14, and the accompanying Mesa library was upgraded to version 9.0.3, which includes support for OpenGL 3.1 and GLSL 1.40 on Intel graphics. The bundled version of NVIDIA’s graphics driver was also updated, to NVIDIA’s latest “long lived branch” - 331. For users with older graphics cards which are no longer supported in this branch, legacy branches are available from NVIDIA’s Unix driver download site.


And last, but certainly not least, especially in the number of packages added to the repository, is the addition of OpenStack support in Solaris. The Cinder Block Storage Service, Glance Image Service, Horizon Dashboard, Keystone Identity Service, Neutron Networking Service, and Nova Compute Service from the OpenStack Grizzly (2013.1) release are all provided, in versions tested and integrated with Solaris features. Between the Open Stack packages themselves and all the python modules required for them, there’s over 100 new FOSS packages in this release.

Detailed list of changes

This table shows most of the changes to the bundled packages between the original Solaris 11.1 release, the latest Solaris 11.1 support repository update (SRU18, released April 14, 2014), and the Solaris 11.2 beta released today.

As with last time, some were excluded for clarity, or to reduce noise and duplication. All of the bundled packages which didn’t change the version number in their packaging info are not included, even if they had updates to fix bugs, security holes, or add support for new hardware or new features of Solaris.

Solaris 11.1: Changes to included FOSS packages

Besides the documentation changes I mentioned last time, another place you can see Solaris 11.1 changes before upgrading is in the online package repository, now that the 11.1 packages have been published to, as the “” branch. (Oracle Solaris Package Versioning explains what each field in that version string means.)

When you’re ready to upgrade to the packages from either this repo, or the support repository, you’ll want to first read How to Update to Oracle Solaris 11.1 Using the Image Packaging System by Pete Dennis, as there are a couple issues you will need to be aware of to do that upgrade, several of which are due to changes in the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) packages included with Solaris, as I’ll explain in a bit.

Solaris 11 can update more readily than Solaris 10

In the Solaris 10 and older update models, the way the updates were built constrained what changes we could make in those releases. To change an existing SVR4 package in those releases, we created a Solaris Patch, which applied to a given version of the SVR4 package and replaced, added or deleted files in it. These patches were released via the support websites (originally SunSolve, now My Oracle Support) for applying to existing Solaris 10 installations, and were also merged into the install images for the next Solaris 10 update release. (This Solaris Patches blog post from Gerry Haskins dives deeper into that subject.)

Some of the restrictions of this model were that package refactoring, changes to package dependencies, and even just changing the package version number, were difficult to do in this hybrid patch/OS update model. For instance, when Solaris 10 first shipped, it had the Xorg server from X11R6.8. Over the first couple years of update releases we were able to keep it up to date by replacing, adding, & removing files as necessary, taking it all the way up to Xorg server release 1.3 (new version numbering begun after the X11R7 split of the X11 tree into separate modules gave each module its own version). But if you run pkginfo on the SUNWxorg-server package, you’ll see it still displayed a version number of 6.8, confusing users as to which version was actually included.

We stopped upgrading the Xorg server releases in Solaris 10 after 1.3, as later versions added new dependencies, such as HAL, D-Bus, and libpciaccess, which were very difficult to manage in this patching model. (We later got libpciaccess to work, but HAL & D-Bus would have been much harder due to the greater dependency tree underneath those.) Similarly, every time the GNOME team looked into upgrading Solaris 10 past GNOME 2.6, they found these constraints made it so difficult it wasn’t worthwhile, and eventually GNOME’s dependencies had changed enough it was completely infeasible. Fortunately, this worked out for both the X11 & GNOME teams, with our management making the business decision to concentrate on the “Nevada” branch for desktop users - first as Solaris Express Desktop Edition, and later as OpenSolaris, so we didn’t have to fight to try to make the package updates fit into these tight constraints.

Meanwhile, the team designing the new packaging system for Solaris 11 was seeing us struggle with these problems, and making this much easier to manage for both the development teams and our users was one of their big goals for the IPS design they were working on. Now that we’ve reached the first update release to Solaris 11, we can start to see the fruits of their labors, with more FOSS updates in 11.1 than we had in many Solaris 10 update releases, keeping software more up to date with the upstream communities.

Of course, just because we can more easily update now, doesn’t always mean we should or will do so, it just removes the package system limitations from forcing the decision for us. So while we’ve upgraded the X Window System in the 11.1 release from X11R7.6 to 7.7, the Solaris GNOME team decided it was not the right time to try to make the jump from GNOME 2 to GNOME 3, though they did update some individual components of the desktop, especially those with security fixes like Firefox. In other parts of the system, decisions as to what to update were prioritized based on how they affected other projects, or what customer requests we’d gotten for them.

So with all that background in place, what packages did we actually update or add between Solaris 11.0 and 11.1?

Core OS Functionality

One of the FOSS changes with the biggest impact in this release is the upgrade from Grub Legacy (0.97) to Grub 2 (1.99) for the x64 platform boot loader. This is the cause of one of the upgrade quirks, since to go from Solaris 11.0 to 11.1 on x64 systems, you first need to update the Boot Environment tools (such as beadm) to a new version that can handle boot environments that use the Grub2 boot loader. System administrators can find the details they need to know about the new Grub in the Administering the GRand Unified Bootloader chapter of the Booting and Shutting Down Oracle Solaris 11.1 Systems guide. This change was necessary to be able to support new hardware coming into the x64 marketplace, including systems using UEFI firmware or booting off disk drives larger than 2 terabytes.

For both platforms, Solaris 11.1 adds rsyslog as an optional alternative to the traditional syslogd, and OpenSCAP for checking security configuration settings are compliant with site policies.

Note that the support repo actually has newer versions of BIND & fetchmail than the 11.1 release, as some late breaking critical fixes came through from the community upstream releases after the Solaris 11.1 release was frozen, and made their way to the support repository. These are responsible for the other big upgrade quirk in this release, in which to upgrade a system which already installed those versions from the support repo, you need to either wait for those packages to make their way to the 11.1 branch of the support repo, or follow the steps in the aforementioned upgrade walkthrough to let the package system know it's okay to temporarily downgrade those.

Developer Stack

While Solaris 11.0 included Python 2.7, many of the bundled python modules weren’t packaged for it yet, limiting its usability. For 11.1, many more of the python modules include 2.7 versions (enough that I filtered them out of the below table, but you can always search on the package repository server for them.

For other language runtimes and development tools, 11.1 expands the use of IPS mediated links to choose which version of a package is the default when the packages are designed to allow multiple versions to install side by side.

For instance, in Solaris 11.0, GNU automake 1.9 and 1.10 were provided, and developers had to run them as either automake-1.9 or automake-1.10. In Solaris 11.1, when automake 1.11 was added, also added was a /usr/bin/automake mediated link, which points to the automake-1.11 program by default, but can be changed to another version by running the pkg set-mediator command.

Mediated links were also used for the Java runtime & development kits in 11.1, changing the default versions to the Java 7 releases (the 1.7.0.x package versions), while allowing admins to switch links such as /usr/bin/javac back to Java 6 if they need to for their site, to deal with Java 7 compatibility or other issues, without having to update each usage to use the full versioned /usr/jdk/jdk1.6.0_35/bin/javac paths for every invocation.

Desktop Stack

As I mentioned before, we upgraded from X11R7.6 to X11R7.7, since a pleasant coincidence made the X.Org release dates line up nicely with our feature & code freeze dates for this release. (Or perhaps it wasn’t so coincidental, after all, one of the benefits of being the person making the release is being able to decide what schedule is most convenient for you, and this one worked well for me.) For the table below, I’ve skipped listing the packages in which we use the X11 “katamari” version for the Solaris package version (mainly packages combining elements of multiple upstream modules with independent version numbers), since they just all changed from 7.6 to 7.7.

In the graphics drivers, we worked with Intel to update the Intel Integrated Graphics Processor support to support 3D graphics and kernel mode setting on the Ivy Bridge chipsets, and updated Nvidia’s non-FOSS graphics driver from 280.13 to 295.20.

Higher up in the desktop stack, PulseAudio was added for audio support, and liblouis for Braille support, and the GNOME applications were built to use them.

The Mozilla applications, Firefox & Thunderbird moved to the current Extended Support Release (ESR) versions, 10.x for each, to bring up-to-date security fixes without having to be on Mozilla’s agressive 6 week feature cycle release train.

Detailed list of changes

All the FOSS packages which didn't change the version number in their packaging info are not included, even if they had updates to fix bugs, security holes, or add support for new hardware or new features of Solaris.

P.S. To get the version numbers for this table, I ran a quick perl script over the output from:

% pkg contents -H -r -t depend -a type=incorporate -o fmri \
  `pkg contents -H -r -t depend -a type=incorporate -o fmri entire@0.5.11,5.11-` \
  | sort >> /tmp/11.1
% pkg contents -H -r -t depend -a type=incorporate -o fmri \
  `pkg contents -H -r -t depend -a type=incorporate -o fmri entire@0.5.11,5.11-` \
  | sort >> /tmp/11.0
