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.

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 😉

openSUSE, I want… or Change this…

Well if you want your voice to be heard and believe that openSUSE would be so much cooler if only they would add or change something, now is your chance.  There is an ideas page for openSUSE 11.1.  There are already several ideas up there and I’m sure they are looking for some refinement and new ideas there.

This is the perfect time to do it as they are gearing up for openSUSE 11.1 alphas.

openSUSE 11.1 Roadmap is released!

This is from Andreas. THANKS!!!  So come one, come all and help make openSUSE 11.1 a great release.  There is no time like the present.  Jump in early and grab that first alpha on July 24!

——–  Announcement  ——–

With openSUSE 11.0 out the door, it’s time to start thinking about openSUSE 11.1. The public release of openSUSE 11.1 is scheduled for December 18, 2008, six months after the release of openSUSE 11.0.

The full schedule for the release cycle is as follows:

  • Thu, Jul 24: openSUSE 11.1 Alpha1
  • Thu, Aug 21: openSUSE 11.1 Alpha2
  • Thu, Sep 18: openSUSE 11.1 Beta1 – snapshot release
  • Thu, Oct 02: openSUSE 11.1 Beta2 – snapshot release
  • Thu, Oct 16: openSUSE 11.1 Beta3 – snapshot release
  • Thu, Oct 30: openSUSE 11.1 Beta4 – snapshot release
  • Thu, Nov 13: openSUSE 11.1 RC1 – snapshot release
  • Thu, Nov 27: openSUSE 11.1 RC2 – snapshot release
  • Thu, Dec 4: openSUSE 11.1 GM – final release
  • Thu, Dec 18 openSUSE 11.1 public release

This is, of course, a tentative schedule. Any critical or show-stopping bugs may delay betas and release candidates.

Major areas of interest in this release include:

  • GNOME 2.24
  • KDE: KDE 4.1.1 (optionally KDE 3.5.10)
  • Continued improvement in the software update stack
  • Linux kernel 2.6.27+

Want to get involved? The start of a release cycle is a great time to get involved in openSUSE development. See the How to Participate page on the openSUSE wiki for details.

See the full 11.1 roadmap on the openSUSE wiki for more details and updates.

Note that Coolo and Michl are on vacation until the end of next week, so let’s start the discussion on features once they are back on the opensuse-factory mailing list,
