IPS @ 16th IE-OSUG


Tim has been busy organising the next Irish OpenSolaris Users Group meeting. The announcement mail is here, but for your ease of viewing..
I'm happy to announce the 16th Irish OpenSolaris User Group meeting:

Topic           Image Packaging System (IPS)
Date            Tuesday November 27th
Time            7:00pm onwards
Location        DIT, Kevin Street, room KE: 1-008

This month, Michal Pryc has kindly offered to give a talk on the Image
Packaging System[1] - a new package management system for OpenSolaris
that will ease the pain of package installation and upgrade.

The project is still in it's early stages, but you can try it out now by
downloading and experimenting with Indiana[2]. Come along to the meeting
to find out more!

Michal plans to give a quick outline of:

  \* IPS structure
  \* client/server side tools
  \* limitations (some would say benefits ;-)
  \* portability

as well as a GUI tool he's been working on. He's asked if people have
specific questions about IPS before the meeting, to feel free to post
them to the list and he'll try to prepare them for the meeting.

This should be a pretty interesting talk, and I'd definitely encourage
you to come along – please feel free to pass this message around and
spread the word.


As always, we'll also give a quick run down of OpenSolaris news
over the past month, and will be recording the talk and adding it to our
podcast feed as well as posting the slides here, in case you can't make
it to the meeting.

As always, many thanks to the nice folks at DIT for offering to host
our meeting!

Look forward to seeing you there!   There's a poster on my blog if you'd
like to help us publicise this meeting.

        cheers,
                        tim
