Linux & Solaris booting together

Since I'm in the mood for capturing flash demos, I thought one more might be interesting:

First we start with Ubuntu Linux booting and running in a Logical Domain. You can see that CPU DR is also implemented so the OS can cope with dynamically adding and removing CPUs from the domain without having to reboot first.

Then just for kicks and grins, I create another guest domain - this time running Solaris 10 - Just to prove that you really can run different Operating Systems on the same chip in separate domains. (btw: this also shows both Solaris and Linux booting in parallel in a race to the login: prompt).

My thanks to David Miller and Fabbio Massimo for rolling the Linux disk image, and Alex and Narayan for helping with the installation.

Linux in a LDom

I'm way late in posting this (been buried in other stuff recently), but in case you haven't heard David Miller and Fabio Massimo have Linux up and running in a LDoms guest using virtual devices.

Congratulations to Dave and Fabio on a truly stellar (no pun intended) job!

Dave's announcement is on his blog page here.
