Font Hiccup on Build 131 Upgrade

I upgraded to build 131 this morning and hit a hiccup on X11 TrueType fonts. About 75% into the install, Update Manager stopped complaining about files in usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType. I moved the TrueType directory out of the way and the install proceeded.

After the upgrade worked, I found 6905518 which shines some light on the problem. The 'TrueType' directory becomes a symlink to /usr/share/fonts/TrueType. So I plopped my fonts in their new location post-upgrade and all is well.

:wq


Update:
Happened upon image-update of b131 stops when ttf-fonts-core extra package is installed and sure enough my 'extra' repo wasn't active. Off to update my keys and certificates for 'extra'.

Problem with OpenSolaris b110

Just updated my Toshiba laptop to build 110 of OpenSolaris. I really liked that I could name the boot environment directly from Update Manager (I like to suffix my env name with the build number). But, system immediately panics on restart. It's a flash at best on the screen, looks to be somewhere early in the CPU start arena.

Need to debug more to check if it matches known bugs. Time's against me now, gotta get ready for a flight.

UPDATE: It is indeed 6818652. Thanks Milan! I'll be waiting anxiously for build 112. :wq

Minimal ON Build for FMA - Update

I've updated the minimal FMA build script from an earlier post. It understands Mercurial now, and accounts for some new pre-requisites FMA has in Nevada 98.
