Installed snv_97...

BFU'd to Nevada 97 yesterday, smooth, uneventful. Some interesting extensions to the FMA case state model to play with. 97 should hit the download center in a few days. Look for a blog about the FMA case state extensions in a week or two.

ONNV April Fool's

It's April Fool's, and a "fix" came across the Sun Nevada putback alias with the following change:

--- /ws/onnv-gate/usr/src/uts/common/os/vers.c Sun Jun 12 07:45:08 2005 +++ vers.c Tue Apr 1 20:55:28 2008 @@ -32,7 +32,7 @@ \*/ #include struct utsname utsname = { - "SunOS", "", UTS_RELEASE, UTS_VERSION, UTS_PLATFORM + "HoosierOS", "", UTS_RELEASE, UTS_VERSION, UTS_PLATFORM };

Still not getting it? Think "Hoosier Daddy?"

Solaris Express Developer Edition Jan 2008

Cool news...another release of Solaris Express. What I received as formal notification:

Sun Microsystems releases Solaris Express Developer Edition 1/08, Sun's free OpenSolaris-based distribution targeted at developers. Major highlights of this release include - Integrated web stack (Apache, MySQL, Ruby, Php, PostgreSQL) (you can bring up a test MySQL/Apache environment in a matter of minutes) - NetBeans 6.0 - Interoperability with Microsoft's CIFS protocol. - Support for virtual machines via Sun xVM hypervisor, based on technology developed by the Xen community. - Sun HPC ClusterTools based on the Open MPI effort. Solaris Express Developer Edition (SXDE) is a release of leading edge Solaris technology, with a modern GNOME desktop environment and improved laptop support. It is a more thoroughly tested release than the every-two-week Solaris Express Community Edition, and includes NetBeans, Sun Studio, and other developer tools that are automatically installed during OS installation. Three options are available for acquiring Solaris Express Developer Edition 1/08 1) Free download 2) Have a DVD mailed to you (at no cost) 3) Download a VMware SXDE 1/08 virtual machine See http://developers.sun.com/sxde
