Installing CLI only with Solaris 10?


Hi,

Is there any way I can install the CLI without the GUI desktop under Solaris during the installation process?

Because I dont want to install GUI desktop, only the CLI interface since now I want to use it as a server. What do I have to select during the install process in order for me to install the CLI ONLY and not GUI Desktop?

Also, would this be a faster way to install Solaris by not having the GUI Desktop installed? How long would this take?

Thanks.

If you want a really minimal Solaris 10 setup, you can choose the "Reduced Networking Support Software Group" or "Core system support" at the installation time:

You can also customize Solaris installation by setting up a jumpstart server which allows unattended server installation.

There is also the option to install from a flar image.
