Padre 0.3.0


I'm not really satisfied about the result layout, but I'm still releasing Padre v0.3.0. The code is much, much cleaner, and the full dependency tree is calculated at once. I only need to eliminate the double patches out of the resulted table, but that's for later.

Old Sun picture archive


While googling for a Sun 670MP server, I came across this : the old Sun picture archive must be the place where old Sun servers go when they die...

PADRE : Solaris Patch dependency resolver


Some days ago, I released PADRE. PaDRe (PAtch Dependency REsolver) is a Perl CGI script, which can be run on any Perl enabled webserver, and is intended to help Solaris system administrators to easy the Solaris patching job. It will grep through the patchdiag file and compute the different dependencies of the patch. That way, you'll have a clearer view on the dependency tree of your patches.

Solaris x86


As the installation of Solaris 8 on x86 didn't succeeded on my old P-133, I almost gave up. But then I tried to install it on VMWare, even though I hate so much (way too slow). It installed without any problem, though I only have 16 colors in graphical mode :(

Time to install some GNU utilities on it, and maybe a XFree server. Of course it was only after the installation that I found out about this site, which explains in detail how to install Solaris on VMWare.
