Jenkins on R4x86

With Java now available on the R4x86 platform I decided to also provide Jenkins for those ReadyNAS systems. So step by step my whole development platform becomes available on the ReadyNAS 😉 Anyway, if you want to run Jenkins on your ReadyNAS, you can grab it here:

Instead of running as the dedicated user “jenkins” – which would be the default on a manual install – the add-on makes Jenkins run under the “admin” account. This has the added benefit of Jenkins being able to update itself from within the application once a newer version becomes available.

So there’s a new Kernel in 6.1.5

By mistake I just updated my test system for R6 add-ons to OS 6.1.5 – only to find out that afterwards my BitCoin miner add-on refused to run. The reason: a new kernel obviously also requires a new kernel module for the mining hardware 😉 So it’s module compile time again, just when I was hoping to put the finishing touches to the add-on. That’s life.
