Nexenta Core Platform 3.0 Alpha3 Released

Hi All,

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
 dpkg-buildpackage -sa

Complete Instructions at

Nexenta ON gate repository:

* NCP2 reposiotry (with b104 packages) is now moved to hardy-unstable

* NCP3 Alpha2 repository (if you still want to stay with b129 bits) hardy-unstable

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.
