Running OpenSolaris as guest on Ubuntu 7.10 in 10 easy steps

After I got from break I found out about a cool blog that Chris Kampmeier wrote a few weeks ago. 

In his entry, Chris takes you through, step by step, how to get the OpenSolaris Developer Preview 1 installed into a VM on VMware Workstation 6.0.2 running on Ubuntu 7.10
 


(Re. Open Solaris, you can grab the preview here.  Or if you want a cool walk-thru check out this article)

The idea however is that this 10 step process is just a short term workaround and things will get even easier once a pre-installed VMware image of OpenSolaris is made available.  As Chris explains, "Ideally, all you should need to do is download a VMware image and boot it within VMware Workstation, VMware Player or one of the VMware server products."

And when can you expect said pre-installed image?  Hopefully in a matter of weeks.  Chris has made it his personal goal to help the Open Solaris community deliver the image with the next interim release of the OpenSolaris Developer Preview, which is approaching fast and furious.

Pau for now...
