BlueOnyx needs your help

We're currently undertaking several large development projects to modernize BlueOnyx and to make your daily server management tasks easier. This is a lot of work and we're short on funding to get it done in a reasonable time frame. If you like BlueOnyx and it provides and added value to your enterprise, then please consider funding the development of BlueOnyx 5211R with a donation. We're trying to rise an additional 8.000,- Euros (~8000 USD) in order to get it done.

Here is what we're working on:

BlueOnyx 5211R for AlmaLinux 9 / RockyLinux 9 / RHEL9

In November 2021 RHEL9 beta was released and we started the preliminary development of BlueOnyx 5211R for EL9. Due to many architectural changes in the OS it took four months (fulltime) to adapt the existing BlueOnyx code-base to EL9.

This is slightly complicated due to the massively newer PHP version that ships with the OS as well as the required CodeIgniter update that needs to be undertaken in order to get the underlying GUI framework running again. A detailed report on the progress so far can be found here. The Code SVN is here and the development YUM repository can be found here and here.



  BlueOnyx is available free of charge. For all purposes, may they be personal, commercial, educational or whatever else you might want to use it for. However: Keeping BlueOnyx updated, adding new features to it and releasing updated ISO images is a lot of work. If you like BlueOnyx, then please consider donating something to the project. Thank you and enjoy using BlueOnyx!
