Getting documentation for OpenSolaris

If you want documentation for OpenSolaris, the best place to go is the OpenSolaris docs community. I have discovered by a coincidence that these guys have a ZIP archive with the most current versions of all documents for various OpenSolaris technologies. It's over 46 MB of zipped documents (wow) and the zipped tarball can be downloaded from dlc.sun.com. The link I provide goes to the current consolidation, if you check the link in the future it will contain updated zip created from the most up-to-date documentation.

Comments:

And for folks interested in redistributing OpenSolaris (with docs), they can grab source from these locations:

docs: http://opensolaris.org/os/downloads/docs/
man pages: http://opensolaris.org/os/downloads/manpages/

Hello Roman,

The archive which comprises all the pdf documents can be downloaded from the following URL: http://opensolaris.org/os/community/documentation/docs-pdf.tar.gz

Note that the content of this archive is shortly described in the following page:http://opensolaris.org/os/community/documentation/tmp/booktitles/

Updates of the documentation are regularly announced (see: http://www.opensolaris.org/jive/thread.jspa?threadID=63164&tstart=30; and subscribe!).

Huge efforts are also made to translate material in various languages: http://www.opensolaris.org/jive/thread.jspa?threadID=67694&tstart=0

Well, well, considering the Sun documentation along side the OpenSolaris documentation which enrichment is underway, users -including non English readers- certainly benefit from a very large source of information. And forums (http://www.opensolaris.org/jive/index.jspa?categoryID=1) can also provide a good support ...

Let's be enthusiastic!

Hervé
