SUn Hardware Detection Tool question


Hi,

OK, I downloaded the Sun Hardware Detection Tool and one question about it...

Are the GREEN dots represent that the hardware is indeed compatible with Solaris??

And the YELLOW ones mean that its not??? Am I correct?

And the BOUE dots mean that I need to download a driver for that particular device??

Am I correct?

According to the documentation that you can check at
http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/hcl/hcts/device_detect.jsp
the meaning of the colors is the following:

http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/hcl/hcts/device_detect.jsp

Quote:
* (Solaris Bundled Driver) - GREEN - The target version of Solaris OS has the driver bundled.
* (Third Party Driver) - BLUE - The target version of Solaris OS does not have a bundled driver but a third party driver is available. You can visit the link provided on the page to get more information on the third party drivers.
* (Open Solaris Driver) - ORANGE - Open Solaris drivers are provided by OpenSolaris.org. You can visit the link provided on the page to get more information on the OpenSolaris drivers.
* (No Solaris Driver) - RED WARNING SIGN - The target version of Solaris OS does not have a bundled driver and there is not a known third party driver or OpenSolaris driver.
* (No Dedicated Xorg Driver supporting Graphic Interface) - YELLOW WARNING SIGN - Only kernel video driver is available for the video device and there is no Xorg video driver available to support Solaris graphic interface.
Hope this helps,
Enrico.

Hi,

For example, I just ran the Sun Device Detection Tool and everything was GREEN except for my Intel Pro 100/VE Network Card on my laptop (which was indicated as BLUE)

Does this mean that it MAY work or do I have to download a driver for it?

I chose the option for Solaris 08/07...

Well, it means that it does work, but as the system hasn't got that driver bundled, you'll have to download it from the 3rd party site that SDDT should point out to you.
