More OpenSolaris updates

August 26, 2009

As I have lived with OpenSolaris I’ve got used to the updates occuring automatically as you would with most modern Operating Systems. What is a real joy is that it creates a new boot environment for the updates so in the event that one was toxic you can always just roll back. It also gives you a handy reference as to how many updates you have done. Number 13 has just happened for me:

cjg@brompton:~$ beadm list BE               Active Mountpoint Space  Policy Created           --               ------ ---------- -----  ------ -------           b4nvidia-bin-fix -      -          86.0K  static 2009-06-06 17:27  opensolaris-10   -      -          15.68M static 2009-07-18 08:04  opensolaris-11   -      -          33.73M static 2009-07-26 09:42  opensolaris-12   N      /          266.5K static 2009-08-24 13:26  opensolaris-13   R      -          16.42G static 2009-08-26 18:58  opensolaris-4    -      -          22.19M static 2009-01-30 21:42  opensolaris-5    -      -          21.30M static 2009-02-25 20:14  opensolaris-6    -      -          45.87M static 2009-04-10 18:17  opensolaris-7    -      -          37.83M static 2009-06-01 20:51  opensolaris-8    -      -          19.03M static 2009-07-02 18:55  opensolaris-9    -      -          11.56M static 2009-07-10 07:30  cjg@brompton:~$

I’m going to have to bite the bullet on my home server and swith to OpenSolaris soon as the nevada builds stop. Alas with term time approaching I don’t think I will be allowed significant down time for a while.
