This (very) short tutorial will show how to enable third-party repositories on SmartOS. SmartOS supports AMD Ryzen and AMD EPYC CPUs since a while back, in addition to the long-supported Intel CPUs, such as the Intel Xeon. Changing repositories is helpful for European users of SmartOS since their Manta storage is located in the region of the US East and can be pretty slow for European users. This article assumes you have a working SmartOS host, are logged in as root, and will use the datasets.

This tutorial will show you how to install netatalk on SmartOS. Netatalk is an open-source implementation of the Apple Filing Protocol, which used to be the default file-sharing protocol on Macs. It has since been replaced as the default file-sharing protocol on Macs by SMB/CIFS. Netatalk can be used to build your own NAS from commodity hardware instead of buying one, which is also an option. SmartOS supports AMD Ryzen and AMD EPYC CPUs since a while back, in addition to the long-supported Intel CPUs, such as the Intel Xeon.
In this article, we’ll install Plex Media Server on SmartOS. Plex Media Server is a media server that organizes and makes available audio, video, and more. Smart OS is a “converged container and virtual machine hypervisor” based on illumos, which is a fork of the now-defunct OpenSolaris. SmartOS supports Linux-branded containers (zones), allowing us to install Plex Media Server on SmartOS. These instructions might also work on other illumos distributions with some modifications.
