The IPS state of EON ZFS NAS Build
It's been a while since there's been an update. Well, after a great deal of hard, slow work, I have some good and bad news. I'll start with the good news. The good news is, there's a booting, 99.7% functional snv 151a based version of EON. The bad news is, this version is not distributable as it's built from Oracle repositories. I decided to use Oracle's repository as a test of process when I could not get a booting Illumos or Openindiana based version. They all panic and reboot after loading the kernel. The good thing here is the process building an IPS image seems to work. So it means back to trying with Illumos and Openindiana. Here are some screenshots of the snv 151a version.
