Brilliant news, FreeNAS 9.1.0 Beta has been released
Will be a while before I get to play with this what with the wedding preparations, house move, new job, etc, etc. but that said I’m really looking forward to:
Improved Plugin Jail subsystem which supports multiple jails and an enhanced UI including enhancements from PC-BSD Warden.
Hopefully this will lead to some serious fun experimenting which will let me separate my current jail (which contains Serviio and other applications) into separate compartments that I can then turn on and off as necessary.
Hitting a brick wall when you’re close to getting something finished is one of those things in life that you hope will never happen but generally tends to. It’s exactly what happened to me yesterday in my quest to make a package for Serviio that I could just install on FreeNAS.
Creating the FreeBSD build environment on my PC seemed as though it would be simple enough, throw up VirtualBox, throw FreeBSD at it and hopefully job done. In actuality it was even easier than I’d expected when I followed the guide that I found on the FreeNAS forums the other day (see my earlier post).
Problem was that I know absolutely nothing about FreeBSD in general and that after many hours of bashing my head against building FFmpeg it all came down to one simple thing. I should have rebooted when it all started going wrong!
Live and learn!
Well, whilst on my mission to make Serviio and FreeNAS live in perfect harmony as simply as possible, I’ve just stumbled upon the fact that LAME has been updated to version 3.99.2.
Does anyone have a summary of the differences / new features in version 3.99 as the changelog is absolutely enormous and it made my head hurt when I started trying to read it.
