Nexenta Core Platform 3.0 Alpha3 Released
On behalf of the Nexenta project, I’d like to announce the
availability of the Nexenta Core Platform 3.0 alpha3 (and belatedly
wish you a great new year!). This is the third release in NCP3 cycle.
You can download the latest iso image from
The main changes over the Alpha2 release include:
* move from Opensolaris b129 to b130.
* Many additional network drivers.
* nexenta-on-source changes
>From the release of NCP3, all sunw* packages are natively built on
Nexenta. The complete sources are available in the repository, along
with Sun Studio 12 and other tools to roll your own kernel.
The nexenta-on-source package makes it very easy to build the
opensolaris ON gate on NCP3
apt-get install nexenta-on-source
cd /usr/src/nexenta-on-source && apt-satisfydepends
Complete Instructions at
Nexenta ON gate repository:
* NCP2 reposiotry (with b104 packages) is now moved to
* NCP3 Alpha2 repository (if you still want to stay with b129 bits)
Please set your sources.list accordingly.
This is an alpha release, and a moving target until we reach the final
release. It is in a good shape for developers to tinker with.. and we
welcome your efforts to improve NCP3. Please file bug reports /RFEs at
The Nexenta Team.
