Great info. Insightful.

Came to my senses.

Installing Ubuntu and picked MLA or whatever to partition it later.

Will install Freebsd and UNIX (Oracle Solaris) later.

Want UNIX for some heavy duty bulletproof tasks.

Have a nice day!

QUESTIONS: (3)

Does not heavy duty bulletproof tasks need good programming on which ever operating system one uses,
therefore the same goes for the operating system itself, it too needs good programming so that it can preform heavy duty bulletproof tasks?

Because that is what it is suppose to be able to do in the first place, is it not?

You'll have to take that up with management. I don't actually work here <> I am just an independent equal opportunity Employee

I do not deal with CD/DVD. Therefore, you are better suited to apply that question in general in the proper area in here so that others in here that would know the answer to that question can tell you.

Jllagria. Where are you?

I'm slowly catching on that Oracle Solaris is picky about hardware.

If they are picky about hardware.

If they are being deceptive about making you give up and just

get one of their Sparc stations I am going to be very not happy!

Thanks!

then I'd used
Code:
dd if=/path/to/source  of=/path/to/destination && sync
and any other parms that are recommended by the provider of the medium (iso file) you are going to burn to your other medium. (USB Stick)
BUT
If you where in fact specking only of writting to a CD/DVD I would not have a clue what is the better of two more in a selection of which way is best question. Trial and error is all I could suggest.

yes.flash drive.

That part worked.

Maybe Windows made flash drives and DVD's have been good all along.

Oracle Solaris install disk is hanging up at copyright notice after

spinning percent wheels. That's the point it is hanging up at.

Googling 'hanging up Oracle Solaris' I've seen looks of BIOS and hardware problems.

Thanks!

Yes, it's not a generic purpose OS. I warned you.

Nobody wants you to buy a SparcStation. The last model (SS20) was probably sold by Sun 20 years ago and there are no more workstations on Sun/Oracle catalog since probably six or seven years. Solaris is a mostly a server OS nowadays, although X11/gnome is still supported but essentially for remote GUIs.

If you just want to experiment with Solaris and your hardware (which you fail to describe by the way) doesn't work with it, your best option is to install Solaris on a virtualized environment. I would recommend VirtualBox which is well tested with Solaris.
