Solaris on Mac/Parallels in no time...
Bonjour, comment Java?
What is the fastest way to install the latest Solaris on a Mac/Intel?
If you have parallels installed, then get an image of Solaris Express
Developer Edition at href="http://www.sun.com/download/products.xml?id=461d6b7d">http://www.sun.com/download/products.xml?id=461d6b7d
Assuming you have a correct internet connexion to download the image
(in 4 compressed files and an easy to use script to automatize the
installation), you'll be able to run the Solaris image is less than 30
minutes... Not bad for installing a kick ass System that contains:
- Early release version of Solaris 11.
- Sun Studio 11: compilers, tools, and IDE for C, C++, and
- NetBeans IDE 5.5 and NetBeans IDE Enterprise Pack 5.5
- GlassFish V1 (aka Sun App Server 9)
- Java Platform Standard Edition 6: for developing and
deploying Java applications.
- StarOffice 8: OpenOffice-based productivity suite provides
word processor, spreadsheet, presentation, and drawing capabilities.
- ... (imagine the combined time it would take to install
separately all these products)
...and an intedmenu utility that:
- is on the desktop (whao: click and run, no typing)
- and works: I selected DHCP and was on the net writing this
...and a changeable screen resolution that works (initial screen
resolution is 1280x800, with multiple resolutions available: 1440x1024,
1280x800, 1024x768, 800x600).
