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 - 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. 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 â€“ 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!
