1. What's New?

  • AntAid℠

    We've just made it so much easier for you to get help from the antsle team. We are introducing AntAid℠; an easy way to give our support team access to your antsle. This will help you get your support tickets solved quicker. You are always in control and notified when you turn on/off AntAid℠.

  • System Settings

    We are adding a System settings section. On this release, you can configure system-wide compression settings that can be inherited or overwritten on a case by case basis; expect more system settings here in the future.

  • Compression

    Now it is easy to fine tune your antsle for performance and/or storage space. Before this release all your antlets were compressed by default, but we understand that you may want to have compression off for high performance use cases.

  • REST API (alpha)

    We are introducing an alpha version of a Swagger integrated RESTful API. This unified API works for both types of virtual servers: VM-based and container-based. This is a very early stage with just a few endpoints added, but we are excited we started this. In the near future you'll be able to completely manage your antsle with a RESTful API; You'll be able to make scripts, automate custom tasks, gather and present data the way you want it. We are happy we started this journey today!

  • Maintenance

    We have updated our project's dependencies to the latest versions, fixed bugs, and refactorings.

2. Installation Instructions

[ IMPORTANT! ] Prerequisites:

For this version of antman, you need to have >=dev-libs/nss-3.29.5 installed. To install a recent version of dev-libs/nss:

1. Run: emerge --sync

2. Run: emerge dev-libs/nss

**Please note: This may upgrade other packages as well, and it may take several minutes (or even a couple of hours), depending on when you last upgraded the software in your antsle.

After you've done this, If you experience problems when starting your antlets, it may be because of a missing virtlogd service running and/or due to a cgroups error. To fix both, you can run:

        1) rc-update add virtlogd default

And restart your antsle:

        2) shutdown -r now
