opensolaris good beast or bad beast?
For some time I've been wanting to install opensolaris.
I have messed around with schillix, belenix and nexenta but have run into problems.
Some months back I had a spare x86_64 / 512 MB RAM laptop, and I tried the 2008.11 opernsolaris live CD on it. IT was murder ... that RAM is just too low. I mean, it _would_ run .. but it was soooo slow, and churned the hell out of the CD.
Anyhow, a spare 2GB dual core desktop came up, and decided to not lose hope and try opensolaris live CD on it. THis time, I did get installed onto HD.
Happily, it also had the sshd daemon on by default so I could use ssh to access it. <that was the one happy moment>
However, as any multi-distro installer knows, that's only the beginning.
Now the title of my post is a little provocation. But when I ask about beast, I was thinking about Barack Obama's car .. which is called the Beast. As a linux user, opensolaris is posing quite a few challenges.
Anyhow, I hjave read up a little and am undertsnading about this "roles" thing, and how I shoulduse pfexec instead of sudo etc. But I do have a question, believe or not. On my home LAN i have ssh access to the opensolaris machine. That home LAN is connected to the internet, and yet the opensooaris machine does not have access to internet.
it's as if I need to execute the "route" command on it. Does anybody know how I may sort that out?
Whn I say "know" I am not asking for the exact answer but maybe any links somevbody has foudn useful for my type of situation
