Linux For You, May 2007

Linux For You, May 2007 edition shipped a Solaris Express DVD (3/07). It also had an step-by-step “How to install Solaris Express” article that Ananth had written. As Murphy would have it, the DVD shipped with the magazine has a bug that might prevent users from installing Solaris Express to the hard disk.

During the installation if you Choose your Time Zone as “Asia -> India” (as most of you will), the installer will hang when you enter the root password and click next. This is a known bug documented here and resolved subsequently To workaround this issue, choose any “US Timezone” like say “Americas -> United States -> Central Time”. After installation, you can always change the timezone from your installed Solaris Express by running /usr/sbin/sys-unconfig.

Hopefully, people who hit this bug will Google their way here ! And if any of your friends are LFY readers be sure to pass the word !

You can also direct any of their queries to ug-bosug@opensolaris.org

'Linux For You' magazine is shipping with Solaris Express Dev Edition in May

Yippee!

'Linux For You' - one of the popular linux magazines in India is carrying Solaris Express Developer Edition in its May issue. Ananth Shrinivas has authored an article on installing SXDE as well.

Linux For You has a circulation of over 40,000! That many linux geeks (or possibly more), get a chance to give Solaris a whirl.

My heatfelt thanks to Jaijit, Ananth, Sam, Jaggy, Savitha and Anu for making this happen.
