22 Apr 2013 What's new in pkgsrc-2013Q1 [30646]
pkgsrc is a framework for building third-party software on UNIX-like systems

pkgsrc is a framework for building third-party software on NetBSD and other UNIX-like systems, currently containing over 12000 packages. It is used to enable freely available software to be configured and built easily on supported platforms.

The binary packages that are produced by pkgsrc can be used without having to compile everything from source. NetBSD already contains the necessary tools for managing binary packages, on other platforms you need to bootstrap pkgsrc to get the package management tools installed.

As usual there were many hundreds of changes which went into this quarterly release of pkgsrc. Here are some of the more interesting and useful changes.

  • OpenSSL 1.0.1 with AES-NI support
  • GCC Go support for SmartOS/illumos
  • Networking utilities on SmartOS
  • Major package versions

22 Apr 2013 So You Want To Be A Unix Sysadmin? [30651]
ITWorld, April 8th, 2013

"After several decades of administering Unix systems, I know more than I'd like to admit about 'the good, the bad, and the challenging' of Unix systems administration. I've worked in companies with as few as four employees and others with tens of thousands," writes Sandra Henry-Stocker in "Linux Today".

"I've spent weeks doing routine, repetitive work and weeks grappling with such incredibly complex assignments that I've wondered if my brain was about to explode. I've had years in which I actually looked forward to Monday mornings and those in which I just couldn't wait for Fridays..."

22 Apr 2013 IDC Analyst Optimistic About Effect of T5 and M5 Processors on Oracle's Market Share [30633]
New SPARC Servers Show Promise of Cutting in to IBM and HP's Server/Storage Sales

Oracle's new T5- and M5-processor-based servers have found favor with IDC analyst Jean Bozman, who writes that this technology refresh is based on 16-core SPARC microprocessors that run at 3.6GHz, she continues, with the result that they now run Unix server workloads much faster than before. Still, due to the binary compatibility that has historically been built into every generation of SPARC/Solaris servers, new T5 and M5 models will run older applications without change, she notes. Furthermore, the refreshed server line should enable Oracle to capture a larger share of the server market than it has sold to in Q2 FY13 and Q3 FY13
