I see an "AIC-7770" reference in the Sun x86 Solaris compatibility list,
which (I believe) is the chip on the Adaptec 2940, but Solaris 2.4 seems
to just puke in the middle of booting with this controller (Pentium-90
motherboard). Is the PCI 2940 controller _really_ supported?
If not, when? The list of PCI controllers supported by Solaris seems
to be basically: NCR. Not very available around here.
Also, how much memory do you _really_ need to run 2.4? My 16-meg is a little
tight on Unixware, but I can still mostly get away with it. WIth 16 meg,
Solaris 2.4 just pages constantly. Is there some configuration trick to
get the OS smaller? The meg-or-so of license-manager processes is pretty
annoying. Can one compile without them, in some sort of fixed-license mode?
