A new release of Sun Device Detection Tool -- support any platform and provide reports for OpenSolaris 2008.11

Sun Device Detection Tool 2.2 was released a few days ago. Besides the Solaris 10, OpenSolaris, Windows, Linux 2.6 and Mac X OS it supported before, Sun Device Detection Tool 2.2 can also run on FreeBSD 6 system. Now we can say that it runs on any platforms.

The new release provides driver db for the latest OpenSolaris and Solaris 10 OS . It could help you to decide whether OpenSolaris 2008.11 or Solaris 10 10/08 can run on your hardware.

The tool also enable you to submit your system configuration information to Sun for HCL auditing purpose (for Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris users only) or data mining.

Thanks for other's mention.

Comments:

As Solaris users we should be more mindful than most...you don't support every platform by just adding FreeBSD 6 - where the Haiku version?

Certainly, the tool doesn't support every platform. But the platforms it supports are most popular ones. :)
