Fun with Windows 7 and OpenSolaris
By David Clack on Sep 04, 2009
So as I did a full reinstall of OpenSolaris 1002 B122, I decided to install Windows 7 over the Windows XP Home also.
I sliced the disk into three partitions:
0 NTFS 40Gb - Windows 7
1 FAT32 40Gb
2 ZFS 50Gb - OpenSolaris
I placed my iTunes folder in the FAT32 partition.
I mount the FAT32 partition to a directory in OpenSolaris during boot.
I modified the /etc/vfstab file adding this line:
/dev/dsk/c9t0d0p2 - /shared_fat32 pcfs - yes -
It's interesting how OpenSolaris has a larger channel number than SXCE.
After building the faac, faad and mp3 plugins, I can actually see and play the iTunes songs from OpenSolaris rhythmbox.
Now I just have to go into the Windows side if I need to buy music from Apple.
