Solaris 11 on ARM server

Hi All,

We are working with ARM on the embedded space, servers and tablets.

ARM has a new server chip coming.

Does anyone have any of the changes we made to OpenSolaris done during the ARM project ?

You know I'm an old Solaris guy and wanted to take a run at it on the new server chip :-)

Thanks

Dave

You can browse source code here:
http://src.opensolaris.org/source/xref/osarm/onarm-dev/

Or clone the repository here:
hg clone ssh://anon@hg.opensolaris.org/hg/osarm/onarm-gate

It's old at this point.

Keep in mind that the Solaris kernel is 64-bit only at this point, so realistically, you need a 64-bit ARM chip too, which I don't think are available yet.

Hi Dave, I have just started looking at porting Solaris/Illumos to the SheevaPlug. The ARM CPU in the SheevaPlug is also used in some NAS storage boxes running Linux. It would be nice to be able to use ZFS on my NAS box.

ARMv8 architecture, the first ARM architecture to include a 64-bit instruction set....
