OpenSolaris build 128 now availble - zfs dedup in it

I've being waiting for this update to try deduplication of zfs. Being knowing that a lot of files will be written as result of image update I set zfs compression including rpool file system (except swap and dump) before doing update. Zfs compression on my home files already being for one month and proved to save space/time/power. читать дальше...

Ordinary user impressions of OpenSolaris updated to build 126

Its being a while since my last blog. And since many projects still in progress I will share my impression about recent build of OpenSolaris b126.

I am long time user of OpenSolaris. This is my tool for everyday work and I have it on my notebook. But still I am just a user, a little of admin, totally not a developer of this system. OpenSolaris 2009.06 was a major milestone with most every features polished to that date. But some was not as good as I wanted them to be. So I came a long road of updating to dev builds. I had all of them starting from 116 till 126. In every build there were improvements as well as new bugs. Only starting with 126 I can say that I feel good about it.

So here is the list why go dev and what you should be ready to. I am not writing in which release bug was fixed. Consider this as a "diff 111a 126" and I am not pretend to show all diff, this is only what is sensitive to me:

  • Firefox was beta in 2009.06 and bunch of needed addons does not work in this beta. That was first reason why I started to go dev. Probably I can go updating applications only, but I decided to have whole system recent. Firefox is 3.5.3 now.
  • System monitor applet had disk activity broken, but now it is fine.
  • Overwall system performance (Compiz at maximum visual, Firefox) performs much better. This is purely subjective.
  • Sound subsystem has changed. Keyboard beep annoying my coworkers. Did not get how to mute it or lower volume perm...

Настройка GPRS модема в OpenSolaris

На моем ноутбуке до сих пор существуют две операционные системы. Первая — OpenSolaris build 118, в ней я постоянно работаю. И вторая — ее я использую для доступа в интернет на даче, а еще в ней установлен антивирус. Не первый раз возник вопрос, а нужна ли мне та вторая, может я смогу настроить модем в OpenSolaris?

Немного нагуглив я нашел руководство по настройке Nokia E71 в Vodafone UK. Остается все это переделать для SonyEricsson K750i в МТС.

приступаем, делаем ссылку для телефона и создаем файлы настроек.

# ln -s /dev/term/0 /dev/se750i
# touch /etc/ppp/options
# cat /etc/ppp/mts-chat
'' 'ATZ'
'OK' 'AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","internet"'
'OK' 'ATD*99#'

# cat /etc/ppp/peers/mts
user "mts"
connect "/usr/bin/chat -V -t15 -f /etc/ppp/mts-chat"

# echo 'mts * mts *' >> /etc/ppp/pap-secrets

# pppd call mts

Configuring Oracle ASM in Solaris Container with Solaris Volume Manager.

We have learned how to configure Oracle in ASM in Solaris Container. For this we setup our container with raw device access. While this works good it is not good idea to expose device names into container. Virtualized OS administrator should not know about devices in global container. And being attached to special device is not giving flexibility. In this exercise we will migrate from raw device onto SMV metadevice. читать дальше...
