OpenSolaris IPS Tokyo 031910

Here are a few images from the OpenSolaris Hot Topics Seminar on IPS tonight in Yoga. I could only stay for a few minutes, but it was nice to see around 50 people stop by for three sessions on the new packaging system in the OpenSolaris operating system.

Moving Faster

It's great to some of the core open development issues really starting to heat up now. You can hear Tim Cramer, Stephen Hahn, and Dave Miner talk about these projects at the OpenSolaris Community Strategy Planning Meeting (slides and audio). At the 21:35 minute mark of the audio, which is slide 6 in the deck, you'll hear Tim talk about the movement of kernel development (gate and tools) to Mercurial and then outside the firewall. See the preliminary schedule and the SCM migration project here and here for more details. Anyway, back to the call: lots of install from Dave and lots of packaging from Stephen. Good stuff. I slept through this meeting, so I'm glad it's all online.

Inside the Image Packaging System

Stephen Hahn, Bart Smaalders, and Danek Duvall talk about the new OpenSolaris Image Packaging System that enables users and developers to get the software they need when they need it. IPS is also a new tool for community growth as developers around the world build and maintain packages and contribute the software to the network repository. To contribute, go to the IPS project.

Murdock on IPS

Barton George interviews Ian Murdock on the upcoming release of OpenSolaris -- OpenSolaris: A Sneak Peak with Ian Murdock. In the interview, Ian walks us through a demo of the new Image Packaging System (IPS). It's so easy even I can do it. And I did. Go get the OpenSolaris Developer Preview and try it out.

I find myself going to Barton's blog more and more often these days. Lots of great clips up there.

IPS in the Press

Sun tries to flex R&D muscle with homegrown package manager: "Sun, however, thinks it's going past today's Linux package managers by having IPS tap into fancy bits of Solaris. For example, IPS can use Sun's ZFS file system to let users rollback to a previous version of the operating system if an upgrade goes wrong." -- The Register.

Sounds very cool. All about IPS here and here.
