Solaris version of the SL viewer 1.20.10.0

I thought is was about time to let folks know about the latest Solaris build of the Second Life viewer, version 1.20.10.0.  Clark Dastardly has made them available at Package for Solaris 10  and Package for OpenSolaris. Streaming audio support returns in this release but only in Solaris Nevada/OpenSolaris because Solaris 10's GStreamer still needs to be updated.  Please let me know if you hit any bugs/problems/issues and please give me some feed back. I would love to know how the Solaris version behaves compared to Linden Lab's official builds - yes, we still need streaming video (waiting on Sun's official AAC decoder) and Voice (waiting on Linden Lab to release  a Vivox client for Solaris) so there's no need to tell me about these.

I'll try and get the patches posted to their related Second Life Jira tickets within the next few days.

There is a known problem with the open source version of the SL viewer where on a rare occasion a new user will encounter the "license" problem described. The quickest way to get around the issue is to fire up a copy of a production SL viewer (windows/mac/linux), login, accept the license and log off. You should now be able to log in with any open source viewer, including Solaris, and happily enjoy your Second Life.

Don't ya just love toys and taking them apart to see how they work? To me it doesn't matter if it's an iPod, a laptop, or the biggest baddest thing a company makes. And nothing makes me more happy than showing how easy it is to develop stuff on Oracle Solaris.
