On behalf of the Nexenta project, I'd like to announce the
availability of the Nexenta Core Platform 3.0 alpha1. This is the
first release towards NCP3.0.
The main changes over NCP2 include:
Move from Opensolaris build 104 to 124.
>From this release of NCP, all sunw* packages are natively built on
Nexenta. The complete sources are available in the repository, along
with Sun Studio 12 and other tools to roll your own kernel.
Moving to the latest bits provides Nexenta users with the latest
opensolaris features, including better storage and networking
functionality with ZFS enhancements and the integration of Crossbow.
Many network and audio drivers have also been added in mainline
The nexenta-on-source package
This release makes Nexenta's development more open. We have released
our opensolaris gate, with patches and debian metadata at
nexentastor.org  .
The nexenta-on-source package makes it very easy to build the
opensolaris ON gate on NCP3
apt-get install nexenta-on-source
cd /usr/src/nexenta-on-source && apt-satisfydepends
The above should build ON, create and populate a local repository with
the newly built packages, allowing you to upgrade your machine.
Upgrades are performed via apt-clone, so any b0rked upgrades can be
rolled back from. We're writing up complete documentation. Please
report any issues with building .
This is an alpha release, and a moving target until we reach the final
release. It is in a good shape for developers to tinker with.. and we
welcome community efforts to improve NCP3.
