Some Solarix X86 questions from new owner

Post by Kenneth Jamies » Wed, 19 Jan 1994 04:16:06



        Ok - it came this morning! My brand spanking new Solaris x86 2.1
box.....

        I have a few questions now that I have looked over the manuals...

        1) I have 10 serial ports - the book shows that I won't have
                any trouble with 4 of them (it shows me how to customize
                COM1-4) - but can I add lines for the other 6 ?

        2) Is there a x86 2.2 or 2.3 ? Or are we behind already? ;-)

        3) how/what/where can I get SLIP software for this beast?
                Commercial or PD is fine.....

        4) Where can I ftp a binary installation of GCC for it?

        Thanks!

        X86 will be skipping a few iterations to be in sync with Sun 2.4 (I
        think)

        gcc can be found compiled at sunsite.unc.edu

        There is a dial up PPP called dp-2 or dp-3, but I forgot where it is
        found.  You might try Archie or the PPP faq often posted to
comp.protocols.ppp.

 
 
 

1. Installing Solarix 8 x86 on new computer...

Hi !

I am planning to install Solaris 8 x86 on my friend's computer, the
problem is, he doesn't want to re-partition his hard drive therefore
he's gonna get a new one for solaris use only.

now, my question is, how can i setup the solaris on the new harddisk
while he can use the multi boot function supplied by solaris and let it
see the PC partition ? since it's on a different disk...

thanks in advance !!
