SPARC and Oracle Solaris

A new whitepaper discussing how Oracle Solaris has been highly optimized for the SPARC processor family has just been posted. Nice read, check it out.

ONNV Firefox Search Engine

<script language="javascript"> function addBugEngine(){ if ((typeof window.sidebar == "object") && (typeof window.sidebar.addSearchEngine == "function")) { window.sidebar.addSearchEngine("http://blogs.Sun.COM/sdaven/resource/onnv/onnv-opensolaris-search.src", "http://blogs.sun.com/sdaven/resource/images/opensolaris-icon.png", "ONNV", "OpenSolaris"); } else { alert("Mozilla M15 or later is required to add a search engine."); } } </script> Didn't see one of these floating around in net-land, so mocked up a quick one. A search engine extension for Firefox for the ONNV source archives. Click Add OpenSolaris (ONNV) Source to add this engine to your browser. Report problems here.

nmap 5.30 (BETA1) Compile on OpenSolaris

The formal OpenSolaris offering of nmap is out of date. I used the following to compile nmap 5.30BETA1 on OpenSolaris build 134.

$ ac_cv_dnet_linux_pf_packet=no CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/include/pcre" \\ ./configure \\ --with-libpcap=/usr \\ --with-libpcre=/usr $ make $ pfexec make install

This assumes you already have the libpcap and libpcre packages installed. You can check with:

$ pkg list |egrep "pcap|pcre" library/pcre (opensolaris.org) 7.8-0.134 installed ----- system/library/libpcap (opensolaris.org) 1.0.0-0.134 installed -----

And repeating from my last nmap blog:

Alas, there are still issues lingering with later versions of nmap on OpenSolaris. See this networking-discuss thread as well as this (yet unanswered) nmap-dev posting. In the latter, it's suggested that non-root scans have better success - that's been my experience thus far. The obvious downside being scans needing raw Ethernet access can't be used (or use the --unprivileged option to nmap).
