Chatting with David Miner of OpenSolaris
By barton808 on May 09, 2008
Right before CommunityOne kicked off this Monday and OpenSolaris 2008.05 was launched, I was able to grab Dave Miner for a podcast. Dave is another one of the big brains behind OpenSolaris and is the architect behind the install team.
Dave ready for the big day.
Some of the topics we tackle:
- The gauntlet people previously had to run to install Solaris
- Dave's involvement with Solaris install from member of the original team in '92 to rejoining and taking over the team a couple of years ago.
- How they've streamlined the install process - Project Caiman
- Building a LiveCD
- Where Dave wants to take the install over the next year: jumpstart, server focus, distribution constructor project
