Updating opensolaris

In order to install the necessary components you should have success following these steps Issuing this command (either as root or sudo-style) will install the necessary libs [email protected]:~# svcs -xv gdm svc:/application/graphical-login/gdm:default (?) State: - Reason: Service is incomplete, defined only by profile /etc/svc/profile/

Oracle invests in innovation by designing hardware and software systems that are engineered to work together.

Unlike Solaris 10, there are no equivalents to finish scripts with Solaris 11.

What is done instead, is to create a script which is installed as a IPS package during the install and run on firstboot and then removed.

One thing I really like about Solaris 11 is that provisioning zones is extremely similar to provisioning physicals and I’m able to use the same manifests and scripts for both.

You can download my service manifest here, it is pretty much identical to the one provided by oracle and I’m not going to dive into that.
