Solaris InstallFest @ CEC 2008

Once again, we will be running the Solaris InstallFest @ CEC 2008!

We'll have people available to assist with installing one of the various Solaris flavors on your laptop. The current plan is to have the following available:

1. Solaris Field Image - New version based on Solaris 10 Update 6 or Solaris Nevada version 101
2. Solaris 10 Update 6
3. Solaris Nevada Version 101
4. OpenSolaris 2008.05 (or OpenSolaris 2008.11 if available)

If you're looking to run Solaris on the bare-metal, please take some time to prepare. Backing up is a always a good idea. If you've not installed Solaris before on your laptop (ie. Windows only) please take some time to repartition the drive BEFORE attending. The recommended tool to repartition is the GParted Live CD, which is available at http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php. We'll have these tools available if needed, but doing this BEFORE you arrive speeds things up.

If you'd rather run in VirtualBox, we'll help you get that going too. :)

We'll be open during the Pavillion Hours and during CEC Late Night. Here's the exact hours and times:

Sunday: Closed
Monday: 3:00-4:30 and 7:30-9:30
Tuesday: 3:00-4:30 and 7:30-9:30
Wednesday: 3:00-4:30 and 7:30-9:30
Thursday: 3:00-4:30 only

Location: Main Hang Space Area, Rivoli Ballroom, Paris Hotel

For scheduling purposes, and to give us an idea as to how many people to expect, please take a minute to fill out this survey (SWAN-Internal only):

If you'd like more details, check out the Solaris InstallFest Pages (SWAN-Internal only). We hope to see you there!
