I disagree with him on a number of counts. But, that is the topic for another blog entry. :-)

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

How to get ATI to listen?

Came across this blog which is about getting ATI to provide better support for Linux. This is exactly the same problem on solaris. I am not sure how much the blog recommendation (contact OEMs than ATI directly) will apply for Solaris support. The funny thing is that AMD and Sun are partners, but we cant get ATI to support us!
