sorrt, no new SL viewer

Sorry folks but I just haven't had the time to dive into a Second Live viewer for Solaris in almost a year.   I wish I could dedicate some time to it but priorities as they are prevent me from doing much extra circular work.  The good news is that there are some folks working on a port and I hope they announce something soon.  I'm not going to give any details and put them on the spot.

new build of SL 1.20

Well I have yet to get a successful build from SL 1.21 or 1.22.  I just haven't had the time to dive into the new build environment.   Luckily, Linden Lab released a bunch of updates for SL 1.20.17.  Therefore, you can download updated packages using the links Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris/Nevada.

I'll try to work on the newer versions of the viewer as soon as I get the next release of Solaris CAT out the door.

Second Life Viewer Security Builds (1.20.17) Now Available

Since Linden Lab released security patches for their viewer, Clark has made builds available to everyone.  Those URLs are: 1.20.17 for Solaris 10 & 1.20.17 for Nevada/OpenSolaris.  Since this is a security-related build, all prior versions have been removed.

I've also seen updates on all the Solaris related PJira issues saying they are now pending!  Sweet! That means that we'll soon have the Solaris patches integrated into the viewer trunk.

Lastly, I have yet to start on the port of 1.21.  I just haven't had the time to dive into the cmake changes.  If anyone has a set of Viewer related cmake patches for Solaris, please share.

hey, I have a new patent

I got a surprise on Saturday.  I opened my mailbox and discovered a letter from a patent certificate company congratulating me on my latest patent.  What?  I submitted that puppy four years ago!  Man!  that's a long time to wait.  What's the patent on?  It protects the idea I developed for aggregating devices to find a common cause for hardware problems.  It's the method I implemented in the Solaris Crash Analysis Tool's dev busy command and I documented in this article. The patent is available for review on Free Patents Online.

Now to bug the powers that be at Sun for my certificate and $$$ reward :)

Solaris version of the SL viewer 1.20.14.0

I've had a few requests for SL 1.20.14.0 since it includes the "skinning project" and of course, Clark was anxious for the patches so here's the packages (thanks Clark!):  Solaris 10 and Nevada/OpenSolaris.  I've been working hard to free up enough time to update the jira issues with my latest patches and promise I'll get them up there ASAP.
About

Don't ya just love toys and taking them apart to see how they work? To me it doesn't matter if it's an iPod, a laptop, or the biggest baddest thing a company makes. And nothing makes me more happy than showing how easy it is to develop stuff on Oracle Solaris.
