FreeBSD 7.2 on a Sun Ultra 1 Creator 3D

  View Printable Version 
FreeBSDThe last time I installed anything on my Sun Ultra 1 Creator 3D, I had to do it with netbooting. I was more lucky this time - the machine now has a working cd-rom drive.
The install was easy enough; download the correct cd image, burn it, and boot the ultra 1 from the cd. Then follow the normal FreeBSD installation with sysinstall. The machine now runs FreeBSD 7.2-release:
root@ultra1# uname -a
FreeBSD ultra1.kg4.no 7.2-RELEASE FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE #0: Sat May  2 08:25:23 UTC 2009
     root@obrian.cse.buffalo.edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  sparc64
Way cool.

FreeBSD 7-STABLE: now with ZFS version 13

  View Printable Version 
FreeBSDOn May 20th, 2009 ZFS version 13 was merged into FreeBSD 7-stable. Things brings in a lot of new goodies:
  • zfs boot for all pool types now works
  • kmem now goes up to 512GB so arc is now limited by physmem
  • the arc now experiences backpressure from the vm - this allows ZFS to work without any tunables on amd64
  • Level 2 cache for ZFS - allows to use additional disks for cache
and more. Nice progress.
