Just noting that updated packages for snv_90 were pushed to the pkg.opensolaris.org
repository over the weekend, see Alan's announcement
for some very
important instructions that need to be followed. Two things that I'll add:
- You should not use the Package Manager GUI to perform the update; instead use the pkg image-update command. The reason is that the GUI is not yet able to create an alternate boot environment for running the update, so you'll end up updating your running system and not have a clean fallback if something goes wrong. Yes, this will be fixed.
- We aren't yet publishing new ISO images, due to some fixes we need to make to the installer to synchronize with the ZFS boot project's integration. You wouldn't use those for updating from the 2008.05 bits anyway, so it's no real loss at the moment. We expect to resume publishing ISO's of every build via BitTorrent soon, possibly as soon as build 91.
