Invitation to CZOSUG Meeting in December: OpenSolaris 2008.11

A new release of OpenSolaris is planned for end of November (version 2008.11). As it was already announced at the ug-czosug list, an all day event devoted to this OpenSolaris release is planned. An invitation to the event can be found at CZOSUG events page as usual.

The organizers, Martin Man and Roman Strobl (yes the Roumen ;-) ) set the event as an OpenSolaris 2008.11 training including hands-on labs, so bring your laptops and get ready for some work :-) .

OpenSolaris 2008.11 already generated some interest, check for example, this blog or this article.

OpenSolaris, Asus Eee PC and CZOSUG #26

I have an opportunity to use Asus Eee PC 4G Surf (the green one ;-) ) on which I managed to install OpenSolaris 2008.05 operating system. The installation went well, except a known bug with kb8042 driver. The workaround is quite easy, just start the kernel with -v parameter (the timing problem with initialization of the keyboard will go away). To make WiFi work I downloaded and installed a driver for Atheros WiFi card (an updated HAL is needed).

This machine is extremely cool because it's keyboard size is just about right for my fingers to be able to do some work while it is really lightweight (920 grams), so it is very convenient to carry it. Here are pictures of the Asus Eee PC running OpenSolaris and me using it at OSDevCon 2008 (thanks to Jim Grisanzio for taking this picture).

On May 28th I presented at CZOSUG meeting about OpenSolaris 2008.05 operating system, so my choice for a laptop to use for the presentation was quite obvious :-) .
