How Do I Install Solaris?
Posted 11 May 2008 - 06:35 PM
I burned the ISO image onto a CD-R and proceeded to boot into it. At the GRUB bootloader, I chose the first option (the non-text one) and it started booting.
After about half an hour, the GUI came up and it looks A LOT like Ubuntu Linux. The computer was very unresponsive at this time and it took 5 minutes to click on the System menu. Then I tried to find the install button but it froze before I could open up the administration menu. A GNOME error popped up and the system froze.
My question is, does OpenSolaris demand high memory requirements or other system requirements that my computer does not meet? I have Ubuntu and Windows XP installed and I am prepared to make a new partition if necessary.
I also tried booting into the text version but that did not work either. Should I use the Live CD at all or is there another way to install it?

Yes I have exactly 512 MB of RAM. Where do I find the list of system requirements? I've looked on several documentations and wikis but I couldn't find it.
Do you have at least 512 MB RAM? Check the minimum requirements before installing the operating system.

Maybe it's just missing that 1MB it requires? I have no clue, never installed Solaris before. Most likely it needs that much RAM is because it was designed to be a server OS never as a workstation really.

You should install OpenSolaris on your desktop since it's a full fledge Solaris distribution.
