Description: OpenSS7 What's New.

Approved for Immediate Release

Jan 29, 2013
OpenSS7 today announced Release of the openss7 package.

(Edmonton, Alberta -- Jan 29, 2013)   OpenSS7 today announced Release of the openss7 package.

This is the OpenSS7 package. It contains all of the OpenSS7 release code and documentation. This is the only package currently released by OpenSS7.

This package contains all of the former sub-pakcages of the OpenSS7 Master Package, including:

  • Linux Fast-STREAMS
  • STREAMS Compatibility Modules
  • STREAMS Utilitize
  • STREAMS Terminals
  • STREAMS X/Open Networking Services
  • STREAMS X/Open Networking XTI/TLI LIbrary
  • STREAMS Sockets
  • STREAMS Internet Protocol Drivers
  • STREAMS Channels and Multiplexing
  • STREAMS X.25 and Frame Relay Stack
  • STREAMS Open Systems internet (OSI/ISO) Stack
  • STREAMS SS7 Stack
  • STREAMS VoIP Stack

Fully deprecated by this release and no longer released by OpenSS7 are the foloowing former sub-packages of the OpenSS7 Master Package:

  • Linux Native Sockets SCTP
  • Internet Performance (the OpenSS7 iperf fork)
  • Network Performance (the OpenSS7 netperf fork)
  • Dialogic Open System Release 6.1

This distribution is applicable to Linux 2.4, 2.6 and 3.x kernels and was targeted at ix86, x86_64, ppc and ppc64 architectures, but should build and install for other architectures as well.

This is the sixth release of the OpenSS7 package. This is a production grade release. All existing validation test suites run clean on supported distributions, production kernels and architectures.

Major features since the last release are as follows:

  • Compensate for RHEL6 lack of c_rehash.
  • Do not create sysfs nodes: they do not work properly.
  • Use no foreground flag in strace.service file.
  • More error traces for strerr logger.
  • Remove static device names (the do not work either).
  • Changes to support weak kernel modules.
  • Clean up weak module support.

This is a public stable production grade release of the package: it deprecates previous releases. Please upgrade to the current release before reporting bugs.

As with other OpenSS7 releases, this release configures, compiles, installs and builds RPMs and DEBs for a wide range of Linux 2.4, 2.6 and 3.x rpm(8) and dpkg(1) based distributions, and can be used on production kernels without patching or recompiling the kernel.

This package is publicly released strictly under the GNU Aferro General Public License Version 3; however, commercial licensing is available. The release is available as an autoconf(1) tarball, SRPM, DSC, and a set of binary RPMs and DEBs for popular distributions. See the package page ( or the repository page ( for information concerning network installation and update sources.

See the ChangeLog and NEWS files in the release for more information. Also, see the openss7.pdf manual in the release (also in html (
