openSUSE Factory is open for Community

Some great news was just announced!  The openSUSE project opened its Factory repo up to anyone in the community that would like to directly help maintain, support, and/or contribute to the core distribution.  For those that don’t know what Factory is it is the next release of openSUSE.  So, the current Factory will become openSUSE 11.2.  You can read all about this great news over at http://news.opensuse.org.

To a more open and community oriented future…

iFolder server on XEN

ok, since I got the request here is the xen image (32 bit only).  I’ll apologize now for the fact that I don’t currently have a way to test this image, so please let me know if it works.  It actually has newer packages than the other images. I’ll try to get this all in sync sooner than later.

Sneak peek – new iFolder UI

This is just a short blog entry to show off a quick sneak peek at the new iFolder UI if you haven’t been brave enough to install the new packages.

iFolder appliance 0.0.8

Well, the packages finally built and I was finally able  to build a new appliance.  So, the changes:

I’ve added the iscsi packages to the images.  This includes the yast packages making it really easy to add external storage through iscsi.

Updated mono core to be 2.4.2 preview 1.

Updated ifolder packages which made our patches obsolete and closer to just working with the next version of mono (2.4.2).  I’m not sure what all of the updates were to be honest.

I’ve also generated more formats of images and archs (huge thanks to Nat on the suse studio team)

As a disclaimer I haven’t really tested these much more than the default setup, my scripts in /root/iFolder, and logging in.  Please let me know if there is anything you want to see changed, added, or fixed!

So, without further delay here is the list of images.  I did exclude the xen image, but if you would like it please just drop me a comment or email.

32 bit:

vmware (works in VirtualBox just fine)

disk image

Live image – Let me know how this works out if you try it 😉

64 bit:

vmware (works in VirtualBox just fine)

disk image

Live image – same deal as the 32bit live 😉
