i thought i had this working at one point, i guess not.
i've been through the advanced installation guide. it doesn't mention the acpi-user-options bit, so i'm wondering what else there is to read, for one thing....
well, anyway.
i put together a boot floppy, from a downloaded d1_image. on close inspection, it looks like it's missing a number of things, namely the solaris/bootenv.rc file, the whole drivers directory, on and on. the boot floppy does have: rules rules.ok the mac.... read more

Hi all, On a Solaris 9 system I've set up a captive (chroot) ssh environment and am trying to configure ssh out of this environment to another server. When I try to ssh out I get :- You have no controlly tty. Cannot read passphrase.

Hi all, I need to attach a SCSI tape drive to my X4200 (sepcifically, a Sun badged DDS3 drive) so that I can perform backups. The X4200 uses low profile PCI-X slots, so I was wondering if someone could recommend a suitable HBA that'll work out of the box with Solaris 10 6/06. I could go for a Sun-branded one, I suppose, but I need to keep a close eye on the shekels...
Looking around the LSI LOgic web site, it seems that the LSI 20160L would be a good choice (knowig that many (all?) of Sun&.... read more

Hey there, I don't seem to have this library and gcc definitely doesn't like it.
Does anyone know off the top of their head which package(s) it comes from? And, actually, what's a good way to figure that kind of thing out? Thanks!!!! Jen --------------------------------------------------- I can't say I was ever lost, but I was bewildered once for three days.

Here is my problem.
I have a collection of HP printers, with JetDirect cards, fed from a Solaris 5.7 box. Printing works without any problems from Windows hosts, other Solaris hosts and, of course, the local host. (The Windows boxen are connecting via Samba.) The problem is our collection of RH9.0 hosts, using CUPS, stopped printing a week or two back and simply refuse to work again. The jobs are shown as queued by 'lpstat -t' on the Solaris box, but there are no files in /var/spool/l.... read more

If zfs can mirror disks, where does that leave SVM? Is SVM going the way of the dodo eventually? Thanks!

I scored a nice SGI Challenger disk array (rebranded Clarion, it seems) from our excess facility, and I'm working it up to go onto our U80. From testing various configurations, it seems like I'll get the best throughput by splitting the drives into 2 independent striped sets, individually served by one of the two scsi interfaces on the chassis- then let Solaris do the mirroring. R5 on the Challenger is <really> slow- my U2 does better in software.
I imagine other ways of setting .... read more

Hi, I am running OSX 2010.11 on AMD and have big problems after a crash for two days ago.
When trying to import a ZFS pool it hungs after 31 of 250 filesystems.
The process zpool-pool00/146 is running at 33% on one CPU forever as it seams.
For some time ago when also having pool import issues under S10 I had do add in /etc/system set zfs:zfs_recovery=1 set aok=1 But this no longer works under OSX 2010.11 according to log when booting.

I was trying to compile ISC's DHCPd DHCP server on Solaris & x86, but it isn't working. I chose the ISC server since for me it's easier to use than Sun's server. But I can't get it to compile: when I define USE_SOCKETS in include/site.h, the compile fails with the following spew of errors from the linker. What can be done to remedy this problem? Or is ISC DHCPd just plain unusable with Solaris? ------- ld: fatal: symbol `if_reinitialize_send' is multiply-defined: .... read more

Is anyone else having trouble with being told their Sunsolve accounts will expire unless they have a valid Sun support contract number associated with it? No-one seems able to explain what this number is. We quote system serial numbers when calling Sun support, but it seems that's not what they want.
There are extra idiocies associated with this. The URL you get to through edit account, i.e.
http://sunsolve.sun.com/private-cgi/edit-user-form.pl?viewmode=contractuser doesn't have anywher.... read more
