re: packaging open source for AIX PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michael Felt   

Finally have a bit of time for myself, closer to home - so I am getting back to basics and making more careful notes on things I (have to) do as I package old and new versions of httpd (apache) and php.

These two have always been my starting point - in order to host rootvg.net.

I have made some updates to http://www.aixtools.net - which is where I go ito more detail about the packaging process and what is available.

In short, just a update on what is going on re: packaging open source for AIX. And a way to get a blog out after a month of forgetfullness.

I know I need to update the POWER& and POWER6! firmware pages - and expect to get around to that next week.

Maybe what is driving the flurry of updates is the corrections in openssl - but there are sure to be other things.

To help you out, short term - here is the link to the POWER7 Enterprise Firmware History .

 
openssl advisory 9 - 2014-06-11 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michael Felt   

Seems we are up to advisory #9 for this year with regard to openssl.

We cannot get along without openssl/openssh these days. These are not, imho, by definition the worst risks we face - but it is bad practice to ignore them.

And remember the saying:

An unknown risk is an accepted Risk! See a copy of the IBM advisory here

AIX and mysql binaries PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michael Felt   

Before MYSQL had been purchased by Sun binaries for AIX were easy to find. These days you need to go to https://downloads.skysql.com/archives to find my MYSQL and SUN provided. Oracle basically stopped supporting any hardware category they were not selling.

Still, good to know someone copied everything that was out there under the "copy-able" license.

Now you know where to go!
