Dyson: GHC 8 & friends

Added by Igor Pashev almost 4 years ago

Updated GHC to 8.0.1 and some essential Haskell bits to compose Haskell environment:

The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 8.0.1
cabal-install version 1.24.0.1
Darcs 2.12.4 (release)
xmonad 0.12

Dyson: Nix at Dyson

Added by Igor Pashev about 4 years ago

At least it is buildable and runs.

Nix is a purely functional package manager. This means that it treats packages like values in purely functional programming languages such as Haskell — they are built by functions that don’t have side-effects, and they never change after they have been built.

Dyson: 3.0 (quilt) format

Added by Igor Pashev about 5 years ago

After 4 years of packaging illumos I have figured out the best way
and now I'm switching to 3.0 (quilt) format with source tarballs.
This allows faster and more flexible updates from upstream.

As a side effect, we can see all the patches http://patches.osdyson.org

The kernel first: http://cgit.osdyson.org/illumos/illumos-packaging.git/tree/uts/debian/rules?id=b7d8d6db6e733656a1fd628859e4e6b1a6477a23

Dyson: Dyson on Dyson

Added by Igor Pashev about 5 years ago

After Dyson at Hetzner it became possible to hack VirtualBox host capabilities,
e. i. running guest OS, like Dyson itself :-)

It works.

# modinfo | grep vbox
258 fffffffff82ef000  3a268 333   1  vboxdrv (VirtualBox HostDrv 4.3.10_Debia)
259 fffffffff81885a8    da0 334   1  vboxnet (VirtualBox NetAdp 4.3.10_Debian)

261 fffffffff832e000   7a68   -   1  vboxflt (VirtualBox NetMod 4.3.10_Debian)

There is a minor issue #188.

I launched it via SSH X forwarding:

Dyson: A milestone and new live CD

Added by Igor Pashev over 5 years ago

Milestone

Previous "stable" (= unsupported) release is gone. Its name was "messier".
New "stable" (= unsupported) release is "lacaille".
New "testing" is "dufay". Unstable is always "bok".

This new live CD installs "lacaille": http://ftp.osdyson.org/iso/2015-07-07/

New live CD

  • Built out of lastest packages
  • smbclient and telnet on CD

Installer

  • Suggests mirror instead of main APT repository ;-)
  • Non-root user is added into sudo group
  • Installs less and ntp in basic (no X) mode
  • Additionally installs qpdfview and xfonts-terminus in desktop mode
  • Really installs ping and traceroute

Dyson: New Coreutils 8.24

New Coreutils 8.24 come with experimental ACL support, ls only, see #106:

# ls --acl /etc/vfstab
