Moved from SXCE to OpenSolaris 1002 B121

Hi All,

So it's taken about a week now, I've moved all the netbooks I have off SXCE to OpenSolaris 1002 B121.

I have the MSI Wind U100, Acer Aspire One 8' and 10" with clean installs.

So from now on I just have to say OpenSolaris not Nevada.

Only issue I really had was the Attansic controller on the AA10, I already had the SUNWatge package from B123 and just added it.

I've been doing the installs of USB sticks which is really much better than having to attach an external USB drive.

I've been working with an external laptop Blu Ray device that I picked up of EBay for about $50.

It's working really good on a desktop, I was hoping one day to add it to my Asus C90S one day and play Blu Ray movies.

Err,

Is anyone ever going to bother getting Bluetooth done and integrated?

As fair as I know, OpenSolaris is the only OS not to support BT in 2009 !

Cheers,
Edward.

Hi,

It's stuck at about B112, the only thing that works is BT mouse.

I don't think anyone is really working on OpenSync that would allow BT syning to an application such as Evolution.

Everyone that want BT on the latest builds needs to send an email to the supporting engineer so he can show his management that it's wanted / needed. I've done it many times, we need more support from the community.

So do you have a direct link for that ethernet driver? I'm on the AA1 10" too here... I really don't use the ethernet port as much, but it can't hurt to have it.

On a side note, I've just installed all of the multimedia codecs from fluendo and am very happy with Osol. Just need skype for those random calls I need to make every now and then.

SUNWatge posted, use at own risk, it's really for B123

Interesting. I have been on various SXCE releases with my AA1 8 inch, and on at least builds 103, 109 and 113, suspend/resume worked perfectly. After I took the plunge and moved to 2010.02 dev, I can't get suspend/resume to work (builds 122, 123, 124, 125). Compiz works, but for me the ability to suspend and resume is far more important. I have done all I used to to on SXCE, such as tweaking /etc/power.conf, but to no avail. It feels as I'm missing something here, but I can't (obviously) figure out what. I am close to doing a re-install of SXCE b113, but I'd rather stay on 2010.02. Any pointers welcome.

Thanks,

Hi,

My AA1 8" is on B125, suspend / resume is working fine.

This is my /etc/power.conf

@lgt just in case, do you have:
$ grep S3 /etc/power.conf
autoS3 default
S3-support enable

that configured?

Posted by Sergio Schvezov on October 25, 2009 at 02:33 AM PDT #

Success! The "S3-support enable" did the trick. Thank you very much for your help. :-)
