Episode Info: Running AIX on QEMU on Linux on Windows, your NAS fleet with TrueCommand, Unleashed 1.3 is available, LLDB: CPU register inspection support extension, V7 Unix programs often not written as expected, and more. Headlines Running AiX on QEMU on Linux on Windows YES it’s real! I’m using the Linux subsystem on Windows, as it’s easier to build this Qemu tree from source. I’m using Debian, but these steps will work on other systems that use Debian as a base. first thing first, you need to get your system with the needed pre-requisites to compile Great with those in place, now clone Artyom Tarasenko’s source repository Since the frame buffer apparently isn’t quite working just yet, I configure for something more like a text mode build. Now for me, GCC 7 didn’t build the source cleanly. I had to make a change to the file config-host.mak and remove all references to -Werror. Also I removed the sound hooks, as we won’t need them. Now you can build Qemu. Okay, all being well you now have a Qemu. Now following the steps from Artyom Tarasenko’s blog post, we can get started on the install! See article for rest of walkthrough. Take Command of Your NAS Fleet with TrueCommand Hundreds of thousands of FreeNAS and TrueNAS systems are deployed around the world, with many sites having dozens of systems. Managing multiple systems individually can be time-consuming. iXsystems has responded to the challenge by creating a “single pane of glass” application to simplify the scaling of data, drive management, and administration of iXsystems NAS platforms. We are proud to introduce TrueCommand. TrueCommand is a ZFS-aware management application that manages TrueNAS and FreeNAS systems. The public Beta of TrueCommand is available for download now. TrueCommand can be used with small iXsystems NAS fleets for free. Licenses can be purchased for large-scale deployments and enterprise support. TrueCommand expands on the ease of use and power of TrueNAS and FreeNAS systems with multi-system management and reporting. News Roundup Unleashed 1.3 Released This is the fourth release of Unleashed - an operating system fork of illumos. For more information about Unleashed itself and the download links, see our website. As one might expect, this release removes a few things. The most notable being the removal of ksh93 along with all its libs. As far as libc interfaces are concerned, a number of non-standard functions were removed. In general, they have been replaced by the standards-compliant versions. (getgrentr, fgetgrentr, getgrgidr, getgrnamr, ttynamer, getloginr, shmdt, sigwait, gethostname, putmsg, putpmsg, and getaddrinfo) Additionally, wordexp and wordfree have been removed from libc. Even though they are technically required by POSIX, software doesn't seem to use them. Because of the fragile implementation (shelling out), we took the OpenBSD approach and just removed them. The default compilation ...
