My Ultra 5 is going to be running Solaris 10 by the end of this day. I installed Solaris 9, but there is just something better about 10, probably the JDS, I don't like the CDE. Anyways, there is no way for me to hook this workstation into my router. But I was wondering, if there was a way to hook an ethernet cable from the Ultra 5, to my computer running Solaris Express. And maybe use the internet off of it, and get files of the computer, like a filesystem server. Any way this is possible? Thanks for all your help.
Thanks! When I get Solaris 10 installed on here, I will try that. I can't plug it into my router because it is too far, on the other side of my house, and I don't have a big enough ethernet cord, and I don't want to buy one, and have it strecthing across my house. lol. How exactly would I get the internet off of this computer too the ultra 5?
The computer I am using right now, the one with Solaris Express, uses the WiFi connection, yes. The Ultra 5 is currently on Solaris 9. But I am upgrading to Solaris 10 5/08 today. So how would I transfer the internet over to the ultra 5?
Oh yeah, I'm sorry. Well, according to the detection tool, it says its on a third-party driver. I am on Solaris Express b57 currently, and should upgrade to the latest soon. But for now I chose that I was running the Developer 1/08. But the ethernet doesn't work.
I am having a problem with the Solaris 10 5/08 installation. I only have installed 4/5 discs. I turned it off after finishing the 4th disc. Then, when I boot the hard drive, it goes to the installer. Saying that all the discs haven't been installed yet. Then a prompt comes up saying I can choose:
1. Skip the missed CDs and continue later (or something)
2. Run the installer after next reboot (or something)
And then it says choose one, so I pick 1, then, a bunch of characters substitute for the 1. Just a bunch of different things like:
and all of that.
I try to use 2, and it does the same thing. What went wrong here? Am I doing something wrong??
Well, I am just going to install the Solaris 9 OE. It is done installing and all went OK. I am going to install the companion CD also. Any way this will still work? Can I still get the internet off of my Solaris Express machine? Any help would be great. A step list will help. I need the NFO driver for the nForce ethernet controller on my Solaris Express machine still. Anything special I need to install it, and where should I download it from? Will Solaris 9 recognize and work with the ethernet hardware in the ultra 5? Thanks.
