OpenSolaris B103 on Acer Aspire One, video and wifi included

Just installed (luugrade) B102 to B103 on the Acer Aspire One.

Both the Intel video and atheros wifi patches look like they made it into the build.

Luactivate is not creating the grub menu.lst file correctly and grub is not displaying the menu at all.

I'll try to work out what's broken.

Tomorrow I'll test the suspend/resume, this stopped working on the Asus Eee 701 pc after a pkg image-update.

If work didn't provide me with a laptop i'd be running out right now to buy an aspire one to run 2008.11 - kind of tempted to grab one for personal use :)

Any chance of Sun working with Acer to have an OEM option for OpenSolaris?

If Che Kristo gets an OEM option, I want one also. x86 on Solaris. I want to do development on Octave.

What's the process for getting a working B103 install? On my 2008.05 upgraded to nv_100 a 'pkg image-update' doesn't pull in new things.

Have OS on a Dell PowerEdge 1325 to test iSCSI performance vs. our existing Linux-based SAN (FWIW you need to apply multiple fixes to get the e1000g on these to give acceptable performance) but would love to have it up and running on my Aspire One.

B103 is only available via ON (-> grab sources, build,perform upgrade; maybe inside sun there is also an image available). pkg image-update should bring you up to 101a.

Yes, I have and image, I just wanted to let you know that the fixes I promised were in there (B103).

Another couple of weeks until you get it, a little seasonal present from Sun
