I appologize if this topic is addressed elsewhere. If it is, sorry for
the waste; point me to it and I will read what's already there.
I have a SPARCStation 1+ (don't laugh, I like it), and I am running
frustratingly low on disque. The machine came to me pre-loaded with
Solaris 7, with both CDE and OpenLook/OpenWindows System. I don't use
OpenLook (I really like CDE), and to my knowledge have not installed any
software that relies upon it. I would like to know what would break if I
were to pkgrm all of the OpenLook and OpenWindows packages. Since I do
not have an external cd-player enclosure, and hence, no cd-support (as
soon as I have a few spare bucks, I plan to get one), I am a little
afraid to do anything that could have serious reprocussions, since I
would have severe difficulties getting the system back online.
In addition to a full installation of Solaris 7, I have the following 3rd
and MS's iexplorer 5 for UNIX.
I know, get 2 extra disques and a cd-player and reinstall with /, /usr
and /export/home each on a seperate disque (or even better, get an
UltraSparc and a really big disque). These are plans for after I manage
to get a job.
All advice appreciated.
