Good Morning Build 71

Arriving back in the office, well initially in my home office, our Sun Ray server is now running build 71:

: enoexec.eu FSS 1 $; uname -a
SunOS enoexec 5.11 snv_71 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire
: enoexec.eu FSS 2 $; 


All seems to be well. While I don't think it turned up in this release we now have the Off the Record plugin for pidgin and pidgin also works with Jabber/XMPP out of the box. Pidgin is still missing the gaim-remote/purple-remote (bug 6578100) which messes with my script for setting my status using the utaction on my Sun Ray so one step forward and one step back for pidgin.

how do you keep the solaris updated? I run solaris express. is there a single command you can run to update to the latest build?

I use live upgrade. The problem with this is you have to have prepared for it first:

With ZFS root file system support eventually the need to prepare first will be removed as you could snapshot then clone the root file system upgrade the clone and then with a small amount of trickery can boot the upgraded clone. However we are not quite there yet.
