Preinstalled Solaris 10/x86 VMware guest images ?

Post by Roland Main » Thu, 09 Dec 2004 11:49:29


Hi!

----

RFE: Is there a way that Sun can make their Solaris Express releases
available as pre-installed VMware guest images (I could do it myself but
I assume the Sun lawyers will be after my * when I make the download
URL public... ;-( ) ?

Bye,
Roland

An RFE was raised as a result of the original post.
That doesn't necessarily mean it will happen for a wide
variety of reasons, but Sun is certainly listening.

1. VMware now supports "officially" Solaris/x86 as guest OS

Hi!

----

From http://www.vmware.com/support/ws45/doc/whatsnew_ws.html#1038925
-- snip --
  Experimental Support for Solaris Guest Operating Systems

  This means you may install the x86 platform edition of Solaris 9 and
  of Solaris 10 beta as guest operating systems in this release of
  VMware Workstation. VMware Tools is not available for Solaris. If you
  want to run the guest operating system's X server, you may do so in 16
  colors.
