Have you played your OpenSolaris today?

I did. And it wasn't on Atari as one would guess from paraphrasing one old commercial but really on OpenSolaris 2008.05.

In reality it was Windows game running via Wine 1.0rc1.

The game was Live For Speed S2 (LFS) which is reported in Wine application database as running very nice. And indeed it is...

Live for Speed S2

Notes:

\* The game was without sound as currently Solaris doesn't compile Wine with audio support out of box.
\* You need to have accelerated graphics of course (I used nVIDIA Quadro FX 370).
\* Screenshot was taken with desktop as kind of evidence but of course you can switch to full screen.
\* After LFS installation I had to change current directory to LFS folder and start game like this:
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\\ Files/LFS; wine LFS.exe
\* In order to compile Wine under OpenSolaris 2008.05 you will need Xorg development headers.
\* For running it on Nevada you must be on or above build 85 (see also my previous blog entry).
