* Wine Installation : Today I was trying to install wine in my system. I have downloaded the latest version of wine (1.0-rc3) from here , but wine build failed with the following error :

configure: error: X development files not found. Wine will be built without X support, which probably isn't what you want.You will need to install development packages of Xlib/Xfree86 at the very least. Use the --without-x option if you really want this.


This is probably a bug , check out !!

Then I tried "Wine patch kit" and follow this instructions , but "./maintain download /usr/local/src/wine-patchkit /usr/local/src/wine-sources" failed with the following result :

Arg 1 == download - downloading
mv: cannot access wine
Use "cvs" as password for winehq cvs
cvs checkout: warning: failed to open /root/.cvspass for reading: No such file or directory
cvs checkout: authorization failed: server cvs.winehq.org rejected access to /home/wine for user cvs

Then I tried Doug Scott's wine build instructions , but when "./cbe-install" was asking for "Enter the path to the Solaris packages [/cdrom/cdrom0/Solaris_11/Product]:" , I didn't understand what should I give. (SXDE 9/07 installation DVD contains a Solaris_11 dir which has a Product dir but OpenSolaris 2008.05 installation CD has nothing like that !!).

Anyway , I opened 'cbe-install' from 'jds-cbe-1.6.0' and tried to resolve JDS_DEPENDENCIES using package manager. Below I have copied a part of cbe-install file which contains JDS_DEPENDENCIES :

# packages that the JDS build requires. cbe-install will check if they
# are installed and install them if not.
JDS_DEPENDENCIES="SUNWgpch SUNWi2cs SUNWi1cs SUNWi15cs SUNWceuos SUNWcleu SUNWeuluf SUNWdeiso1 SUNWi5cs SUNWi13cs SUNWi9cs SUNWeeuos SUNWi7cs SUNWesiso1 SUNWcleu2 SUNWeu8os SUNWfriso1 SUNWale SUNWhkleu SUNWhleu SUNWinleu SUNWitiso1 SUNWjfpu SUNWkleu SUNWmeaos SUNWnafos SUNWnamos SUNWneuos SUNWsamos SUNWseuos SUNWsviso1 SUNWtleu SUNWweuos SUNWgtar SUNWwgetr SUNWwgetu SUNWhea SUNWsfwhea SUNWsprot SUNWxcu4"


Then I searched for each package in the "Package Manager". Most of them were available except a few . List of unavailable packages is given below :

SUNWcleu
SUNWale
SUNWhleu
SUNWhkleu
SUNWjfpu
SUNWtleu
SUNWgtar
SUNWwgetr
SUNWwgetu
SUNWhea


This time "Package Manager" worked in a pretty strange way !!! When I searched for SUNWi2cs , it find out the package but after clicking the install/update button it showed me something like : "1 package will be installed, 0 MB will be downloaded" and SUNWi2cs installed in a moment.

"General Info" about the package was something like :

Information for installed package:

Name: SUNWi2cs
FMRI: pkg:/SUNWi2cs@0.5.11,5.11-0.86:20080426T181621Z
Version: 0.5.11-0.86
Packaged: 2008-04-26 18:16:21

But , "Files Details" contained a single line : "Root: /".

Anyway , I found SUNWi2cs in the location : "/tmp/cbe-pkgs-vGxb". Other installed packages were also there. Then I tried "./cbe-install" again , result is given below :

ritwik@ritwik:~$ cd jds-cbe-1.6.0
ritwik@ritwik:~/jds-cbe-1.6.0$ ./cbe-install

I don't have any idea about solving this problem..... :(

**
Device Driver Utility :
This utility checks whether a driver exists in the Image Packaging System (IPS) for devices that do not have an attached driver. Device Driver Utility enables you to install the device drivers from IPS for those devices on your system that do not have an attached driver. Another function of this tool is to submit system configuration information to the OpenSolaris Hardware Compatibility List (HCL). (Read more...)

*** Various Services : Various services are available here... just enable them to use. Everything needed for network administration is available , access it from System --> Administration --> Services.

**** Minor bugs :
-- "Package Manager" is not closing normally , every time I tried to quit it by clicking on the close button, it shows that file manager is not responding. I need to 'force quit' the window each time.
-- "Documents" folder was available under the 'places' option in the 'file browser' window , but it was not present in my home folder. I created it manually.
-- I use 'gedit' to create a new document and often save it on my desktop. But , sometime after closing the gedit window , I can't find the file on my desktop. I need to 'reload' the desktop from the file browser window to view the file on the desktop.
