OpenSolaris B140+ sound issues

Hi All,

 So I built myself a local OpenSolaris repo on ZFS.

B140+ has a sound issue when you login as a regular user, something to do with logindevparm again.

 I created a file in /usr/bin called sound, chmod 777 sound.

       cd /devices/pci\\@0\\,0

       chown dclack:staff \*sound\*

I just pfexec this from gnome-session startup.

B141 looks like a very stable release, with the Gnome 2.30 desktop.

I'm also using the osstat gnome panel applet, it's really cool

Thanks Alex

Strange issues with blog

Hi All,

 I'm finding I cannot get into http://blogs.sun.com  from firefox on B141, I'll work it out later.

Anyway I'm working on testing Java and JavaFX on ARM and X86 systems.

I've just built my first Android 2.1 for X86 that installs and runs under VB 3.2.6 beta 1 and on the D10C touchscreen netbook.

Here are some screen shots of it running under VB

Evolution contacts issues on OpenSolaris B131

Hi All,

So I had to start the entire install process of B131 again.

Once I had the system installed I did a restore of my evolution data, the contacts would not work, no problems, do what I did on Nevada, just go to my source store, rebuild and install evolution.

Not good, ended up with an nss issue I just could not get around, evolution crashing on start-up, spent about three hours trying to fix.

I've restarted the install process again, evolution contacts are still not correct, I'll have to find out what's really going on Monday.

I can at least rebuild the system from the external usb ZFS drive in a short period of time, I soft link my Documents to a directory on the USB ZFS drive, I backed up the old Nevada /usr/lib onto the USB ZFS drive also.

BTW, I did get my offer letter from Oracle today, I'll be saying "yes", I'm looking forward to new adventures, it's been awhile since I've work on an SQL DB.

I am feeling sad for the good friends I'm loosing, but hope we can keep in contact, and wish them the best.

Hopefully my neck muscles will now relax a little.

SXCE B119 fcoe_config service startup issues

 Hi All,

  I'm still seeing the fcoe_config startup issue on B120 builds.

  It stops the startup process

create a file /lib/svc/method/fcoeconfig with the following in it, remember to chmod +x on it, the problem should go away on the next restart.

#!/sbin/sh

. /lib/svc/share/smf_include.sh

exit $SMF_EXIT_OK
