This might interest some. A beta of StarOffice 9 was made available on 17th July and runs for a month.
The FAQ fails to answer one obvious question - does the software stop running at the end of the beta or not. It tells you the beta period ends after a month, but that is not the same as saying whether the software stops working or not. (Yes, I do know how to use the 'date' command, but one would think they would put such information there.) Anyway, for those interested, see: http:/.... read more

It was old unix knowledge I received a long long time ago that said that the Solaris kernel ran only on CPU0. Nowadays, when I look deep at a Solaris 10 x86 system, I'm not so sure I am seeing that any more. For example, we have an application that is extremely SYS heavy (unoptimized code) that calls time-related functions a lot, which eventually breaks down into a gtime() storm. Yet when the app is running, I don't see CPU0 go way up, only the CPU that the application is on.
So was t.... read more

Wondering if anyone has seen this problem with Solaris 10? While accessing a NFS mounted filesystem using anything (ls, du, simply readingg files) I see that the systems free memory slowly disappears.
free memory will reduce quickly while doing something like du -sk * on the mounted filesystem.
The lost memory is never recovered until a reboot.
echo ::memstat|mdb -k shows that the memory is being used up by the Kernel The most recent patch cluster is installed on the system. This happens on b.... read more

G'Day Folks, I can't read any sites from docs.sun.com. For example, any of the Solaris 10 docs. They return, Server Error This server has encountered an internal error which prevents it from fulfilling your request. The most likely cause is a misconfiguration. Please ask the administrator to look for messages in the server's error log.
I tried to fill out a comment to inform Sun that the site was broken, however the same error is returned for the comment link. People tell me tha.... read more

Hi, Running 5/08 with latest updates on Sparc, I'm unable to login after logout. Last actions I did: install libSDL and libSDL_mixer, adjust .profile by adding LD_LIBRARY_PATH, source .profile, then start Blender (having SDL as requirement) in terminal. Was ok, so I closed Blender, created a launcher on the desktop. Clicking this didn't start Blender, so I figured I had to log out and log in again. But: since the logout, I haven't been able to login again as user. Root is no pr.... read more

I have a problem similar to what is described here http://groups.google.com/group/comp.unix.solaris/msg/16adab950f1cf19a The other commenters in the thread thoguh the problem was due to SAM- QFS, but I disagree.
Here is what I did: I installed Solaris 10 update 8 from DVD onto a x86 system with a pair of 250GB SATA disks. After installing the root filesystem onto a UFS disk slice, I used Solaris Volume Manager to create a mirror metadevice. I also created a mirrored zpool on another pair of d.... read more

Hello, Hope anyone had practiced such solution, I need to create zone which will have one of mountpoints pointed to NFS mount from global zone.
Mounting NFS in sparse zone is not possible because of separated NFS network and no additional address from that pool.
In general having nfs filesystem in zone config is not allowed and generates error. I was able to omit this by creating additional mountpoint in globalzone in lofs type. Now zone boots without warnings but required filesystem is una.... read more

We have a request to create a user on one of our Solaris 10 boxes that uses LDAP authentication. The requestor has specified that the new user shouldn't be able to log in directly and that id would only be accesssible by su'ing using the appropriate password. Of course, the user being su'd to would have to have a shell and otherwise normal functionality. Has anyone done this kind of thing in Solaris 10? I have also looked at the sshd configuration and while it blocks root login, .... read more

Is there a payoff for using Large File API? Why, for example, wouldn't one use xxx64() functions in all cases rather than considering either to use 32-bit or 64-bit API.
Thank you, Alona
