Hi, I recently purchased a nice Sun Blade 2500 Silver, single processor 8GB RAM. The machine is in perfect condition and when I opened the case I had a nice surprise: there was a sunpci 3 card included.
Unfortunately the seller reinstalled solaris 10 thus wiping all preinstalled software and I am not able to find the SUNWspci3.tar.Z file anywhere. Oracle website is not helping (only documentation there).
I googled a lot to no avail.
My experience with Solaris is very basic (I'm experienced with Debian/Arch/CentOS, and I can use OpenBSD, Slackware and FreeBSD), I managed to install my favourite packages with OpenCSW but I don't know which commands can tell me the exact Solaris 10 version (I understand the sunpci card has some issues with unpatched systems) nor if there is something similar to lspci to tell which exact version of sunpci card I have (it's a sunpci 3 but I don't know if it's a regular or a pro).
Can someone help me or point me to useful resources?
Hi I got ahold of the software (the seller found an installation CD). This card (SunPci III) is amazing. The software needed a simple edit on a binary to remove a system date check that stopped to work after 2009. Now it works perfectly.
I have a SUN Blade 2500 with the SunPci III card like you.
I am not able to get the card working.
I succeeded to install the software, below the steps.
The SUNWspci3.tar.Z is uncompressed and the .tar extracted into /Documents folder;
pkgadd -d /Documents
(pkgadd found SUNWspci3 and start to install the drivers)
(I got one first error that the sunpcidrv.2100 is missing)
Googling I found the solution:
ln -s sunpcidrv.280 sunpcidrv.2100
ln -s sunpcidrv.280.64 sunpcidrv.2100.64
Then I installed the last patch 118591-04.zip to fix the millennium bug. Uncompress the zip file and then:
Now I can start the SunPCi software and it is possible to create also the disk.image (in several flavour from dos, linux, winxp/2000).
But during the creation of the virtual disk I got this error message:
File Selection Error
Directory does not exist
The yellow blinking led of the card become fixed (still yellow) and nothing happen.
What means. "Directory does not exist"?
I hope you can help me.
