Solaris Express is free to download if you register on the Sun website. Solaris Express is based on the Nevada development versions so there is no Solaris Express 10, but there is a Solaris 10.

i think(if i'm not wrong) it was from this page that i downloaded sol express , cd version here :: HERE ... but you will need to register first if you havent done it yet ... after filling up somekind of forms and if they found out that they do know you personally ... they will send you some magazines and a coffee mug promptly ...



//nah ... just download it ...

If you were referring to my screenshot. Thats GNOME 2.14.x on Gentoo 2006. I mainly use KDE, but sometimes tinker with GNOME.

Why not login to your account online and then use a download manager to retrieve the required files?

It's hard to help with no more information than "it doesn't work".

What is "DAP software" ?

Are you downloading from this page ? :

I'm not telling you are the only one experiencing trouble downloading these files, but tens if not hundred of thousands people have succeeded completing it, so it should work.

If you just write "it doesn't work", how would you like someone to understand where something goes wrong.

Okay, so just start by not using that thing, stay with a browser to download and tell us what happens.

I usually use kget (a frontend to wget). I simply login to my account, agree to the licence and then copy and paste the urls for the isos into kget and a few hours later, the isos have been downloaded.

The problem with your posts is that you are saying "it doesn't work" without specifying exact details and thats not very helpful because it leaves people guessing and you won't get any accurate answers.

although i'm not a cds collector but i have no problems downloading solaris iso , usually 2 or 3 at a time and they burn very well ... all these without any downloading softwares but since somebody had successfully downloaded solaris iso with kget , i think you can try that if you like to use download manager ...



//hmm ... seems that all eyes are on you now ... ^_^
