First opensolaris installation…

Posted by Balachandran on August 22, 2006

I saw the installation procedure for opensolaris for the first time. It was really interesting.It was also new. Praveen made a demo by installin in one of the systems in the UNIX lab.But still had not got a hands on experience in installing it.But had a few problems after installations. But they were solved, only after some good thinking.

The problem e face was regarding the grub. We installed it in one of the systems which already had Debian and Windows.So after installation we thought the GRUB would display all three options. But due to some mistake, we could not get the grub back. So had to speak in grub terms :(. We went to the GRUB prompt and tried to setupGRUB. After some initial errors and mistakes we were able to restore the grub with all the options.
