At Bay Area DrupalCamp today, Sun is handing out USB Flash sticks that boot any USB-bootable X86/X64 box into OpenSolaris with a running Drupal 6 instance. For those of you not at BADCamp this weekend, we've also made the USB image available for download here. It's a little less than 1GB, and fits on 1GB flash drives.
To burn the image to your own USB flash drive:
- From a Windows box: see here
- From an OpenSolaris box: install and use /usr/bin/usbcopy from SUNWdistro-const package
For those who'd rather try this from a "Live DVD", the .iso image is here.
Update 19 October: thanks to alert readers who spotted my ill-formed DVD link above. It's fixed now.
