Understanding SmartOS Builds

There is a new build, on average, every 2 weeks. SmartOS builds do not have a version number, rather they have a timestamp in the form: 20120809T221258Z (in this example, the date is: 08/09/2012 at 22:12:58 UTC)

For any given build, there will be 5 files available:

  • platform-(timestamp).tgz: The raw kernel and boot_archive; this is most commonly used for PXE booting
  • smartos-(timestamp).iso: Live Image ISO
  • smartos-(timestamp)-usb.img.bz2: Live Image USB image (This is the preferred installation method)
  • smartos-(timestamp).vmwarevm.tar.bz2: VMware Image (VMX Format) - Please Note!  KVM is not supported under VMware; Zones-Only.
  • SINGLE_USER_ROOT_PASSWORD.(timestamp).txt: Contains the default root password for the live image (needed only when booting without mounting the zpool)

For a full list of changes in each build, please refer to the SmartOS Change Log.

Accessing the Source

SmartOS source is freely available and can be accessed on Github.

    Do you provide geographically distributed mirrors of smartos? I can only get about 250KBps here in Australia. I'd consider running a local mirror. ... Similarly for the pkgsrc repos.

      We don't as yet, but I don't see why we shouldn't. Are you offering, or just asking? ;-)

        Offering, depending on the size. How large would it all be? I would run it somewhere on 203.15.106.0/24 and happy to as it'll make installing boxes at my end a lot quicker :-)

          Go for it. It's 10G, grows about 500M a fortnight.

    At least in VMWare Fusion (>5) you can make KVM working. You have to enable advanced Features: http://pubs.vmware.com/fusion-5/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.vmware.fusion.help.doc%2FGUID-38178690-1234-4843-B135-4063F9AA73E4.html
