OpenSolaris 2008.11 RC2 - Suspend Resume - Adding memory

I have upgraded my PC from OpenSolaris 2008.11 snv_101a to snv_101b which is Release Candidate 2

The upgrade ran smoothly, as usual with three commands:

  • dmerle@opensolaris:~$ pfexec pkg image-update
  • dmerle@opensolaris:~$ pfexec pkg install SUNWipkg
  • dmerle@opensolaris:~$ pfexec pkg image-update

When it comes to suspend-resume, it is now running OK for me. Although I had to run these two commands to setup supend-resume:

  • dmerle@opensolaris:~$ /usr/sbin/pmconfig
  • dmerle@opensolaris:~$ /usr/sbin/svcadm restart hal

You also have to add the line:

S3-support   enable

at the end of file /etc/power.conf

Then, go in the menu System -> Shut Down... and choose Suspend.

You can Resume by connecting your mouse, or pushing the power button.

This morning, I also added 1GB memory into the Toshiba Tecra M3 laptop. This is the exact description I ordered. I ordered it at Offtek company, with the following reference: Fabricant: Toshiba Taille mémoire: 1Go Module Produit: Tecra M3-183. It cost me 15 Euros.

Now I can run xVM Virtual Box without any latency. I have got enough memory:

 Application  Memory in use
 Gnome  44%
+ Thunderbird
 44%
 + Firefox 3.0.4
 50%
 + OpenOffice 3.0
 55%
 + xVM VirtualBox running Windows XP
 83 %
