iXsystems’ FreeBSD 8.1-based FreeNAS snapshot

August 11th, 2010

iXsystems has uploaded a snapshot of their new FreeBSD 8.1-based FreeNAS.

This snapshot is for developers only. It is not functionally complete yet, and there are likely many rough edges.

If you are interested in playing with it you will need to download the code and build it yourself. You can find the code in SVN and here is the accompanying README.

The new FreeNAS is based on nanoBSD and builds for 32 and  64 bit machines, but building a 32 bit image on a 64 bit installation is currently broken.

    Thanks for getting the word out! I do have a minor correction.

    The 32-bit build is broken only on 64-bit machines. I’ve received at least one report that it works in an i386 machine.

    Thanks for the correction, I have updated the post… Do you know of anyone who is making the disk images available for those who can’t build from source?
