I had two questions.
1. I am planning to buy a PC for Solaris x/86.
Are there any recommendations, absolute no's regarding parts.
Especially about Onboard AGP video card. Does Solaris support it. I am
looking at one with chipset SIS 6326.
Answer: look at http://access1.sun.com/drivers/hcl/
If all your parts are not here, you might as well throw your
money in a casino.
On-board AGP support as per Marc is not there.
2. This is regarding install of Solaris7 on x/86 PC It is a generic PC.
Solaris does not autodetect the hardware components. So I did
scan and it did finish. When it tries to load the drivers it stalls
at the very first drivers
itself which is com.bef .Does anybody know what this driver is
for( which hardware part) and how
can I proceed.
I found out from a Sun Engineer that it could be the serial chip
on the motherboard.
As of today other that starting with a new motherboard, I don't
have an answer.
