we are happy to announce that a repository containing all the oi-userland
packages built with gcc 6.4.0 is now available for testing.
The repository is located at:
It is synchronized with the latest oi-userland bits and contains some minor
While these packages have been tested for a few weeks now, be aware that
the repository should be used for evaluation only (not in production).
Note that illumos-gate is still built with illumos-gcc 4.4.4.
To test this repository, we recommend that you create a new Boot
Environment (BE) and update manually this newly created BE.
Assume the right credentials using sudo, or pfexec if you have Software
Installation profile: you need to add sudo or pfexec before each of the
following command lines.
$ beadm create 20180207-gcc6
with '20180207-gcc6' an arbitrary BE name.
$ beadm mount 20180207-gcc6
Mounted successfully on: '/tmp/tmp.7mayXC'
with '/tmp/tmp.7mayXC' the mountpoint of the new BE.
Add the gcc-6 repository to the list of publishers and set as preferred:
$ pkg -R /tmp/tmp.7mayXC set-publisher -P -O http://pkg.openindiana.org/
$ pkg -R /tmp/tmp.7mayXC set-publisher --non-sticky --disable
$ pkg -R /tmp/tmp.7mayXC publisher
PUBLISHER TYPE STATUS P LOCATION
userland origin online F http://pkg.openindiana.org/
openindiana.org (non-sticky, disabled) origin online F
Finally you can update the new BE:
$ pkg -R /tmp/tmp.7mayXC update -v
Be aware that the update can make up to 3GB of data.
The created BE can be chosen manually at the next reboot, or activated
$ beadm activate 20180207-gcc6
Please report any package dependency issue that may arise.
Praise the Caffeine embeddings
