B130 OpenSolaris - only resume issues

Hi All,

 So this may be my last blog entry as a Sun employee, looks like Oracle will get the go ahead from the EU next week.

 If this blog does go away, I wanted to say what a pleasure it's been working with you all on the Intel Atom Networks with OpenSolaris.

Checking out B130, you can see that work has been done in the Xorg and shutdown menus areas. It looks like it all works apart from the resume failure.

The new login screen is pretty cool.

I've been working on the Samsung NC20 all week, creating a platform for the JavaFX developers in my group.

I've been working on Ubuntu as OpenSolaris does not like the 64 bit VIA Nano processor.

Running Ubuntu through the ugrades from 8.04, 8.10, 9.04 and 9.10, I've gotten everything to work.

My main goal was to allow for 3G network access, I'm using an AT&T 3G Quicksilver USB adapter, you can see from the attached pictures, that 3G networks are totally configurable and controllable via the network manager.

I can turn off the wired ethernet and wifi, and just connect into the AT&T 3G network, I'm on the edge down here at the beach, so the speed is a little slow, but it works.

OpenSolaris B130 suspend / resume AA1 10" and MSI U100

Hi All,

Happy New Year

I just did a clean install of B130 on the AA1 10" and and image-update to B130 on the MSI U100.

Everything works fine accept for the video on resume and ssh will not let me login as root, I need to go through the regular user first.

I'm working with engineering to see if we can fix the video issue, the systems are still live, the video trashed. I'll keep you all posted.

BTW I'm testing the VIA Nano based Samsung NC20, it's a really cool little netbook, I'm working on Ubuntu 8.04 currently for another project, once that's done, I'll fire up OpenSolaris see how it works with the OpenChrome driver.

I do like the full size keyboard and 12.1" screen (1280 x800), it's really thin and not very heavy at all.
