Oracle Unix Question


Linuxies

How do you get to the prompt?

How do you pull a directory?

It's Solaris 11

Thanks!

Thank you for the response.

Just dabbling.

That really old edition of Unix for Dummies is looking better and

better after searching for Getting Starting info.

Solaris is a whole different world then Linux. the "basic concepts" are the same? but commands are a bit different, from what little I've played with it. I am installing it on VB as I type this .. I could not even get a working bootable live USB after dd'ing onto a USB Stick per instructions.

but you're best to set up a general account with them if you have not already, seeings how you have to have one to down load it to begin with.

as far as solaris help in here, this is LINUX not Solaris. so... it is a maybe. MO

just use the keywords solaris with everything you search in google on how to's

Downloading Fedora.

Working my way down the Unix chain.

AIX requires a contract.

BSD I just don't like.

Bought PCBSD and they required you buy another copy to update it.

Solaris doesn't really have a lot to offer as far was being able to use it like Linux,codex for movies and such and software is very limited. But, if you're just going for learning cli and admin duties in a unix system. their ya go, and its free.

you could install Slackware, then VM and install on that to play around.

I cannot even get Youtube on Firefox in Solaris installed on VM to work completely.

Fedora Live download and using Media Writer worked smoothly.

Only problem was had to hit Tab at boot and choose Linux.

Solaris 11 making a bootable USB drive is ugly.

This person came to conclusion it's easier to install Solaris with

Virtualbox and THEN make your bootable USB drive.

I will give what he calls Step 1 a few tries.

Thnks!

that is what I have right now, it is rather easy to install in VM.
to be able to change your client to any size use these commands, changing the last one to what ever size you want. go into your vm directory on your host then run these commands.

Code:
VBoxManage setextradata global GUI/MaxGuestResolution any

VBoxManage setextradata "VM-Name" CustomVideoMode1 1920x1200x32
after you install the client side software for VM and add the user to the vm group then restart it, you'll be able to change the size via the drop down menu in the client.

you'll be like the third or fourth post within that area...
not many in here using Solaris
That one Mod I think is the only one I've even seen that his side panel says he actually uses Solaris.

It's no surprise Linux is more popular than any other OS here on LinuxQuestions.

Solaris is nevertheless the most popular (or the less unpopular ) of the "Other *NIX forums" if we take into account all postings since the Forums beginning (~5k threads/~27k posts) but it is true they are all very low traffic forums compared to the Linux ones.
