Solaris 2.0 installation on a SPARCstation

Solaris 2.0 booting up

Solaris 2.0 is a FCS release. It is somewhat buggy and feels much slower than later releases.

boot from Solaris 2.5 cdrom partition the disk then boot from Solaris 2.0 cdrom and install everything.

Solaris 2.0 did not boot the kernel depending on the SCSI disks installed. Worked with two Seagate disks, but not with Quantum or DEC disks...

Solaris 2.0 could not be installed via serial console, because the installation process would not work correctly with the VT100 terminal setting. It needed a graphical console to install.

edit /etc/nsswitch.conf:

hosts:        files dns [NOTFOUND=return]

add gateway to /etc/defaultrouter add hosts to /etc/hosts

uncomment CONSOLE=/dev/console in /etc/default/login to allow remote root login

Patch-ID# 100723-01 Problem Description: Solaris-2.0FCS install procedures leave world-writable directories, thus opening a path for normal users to gain root privileges.

After the installation of Solaris 2.0, the installer should run the following command as root:

  1. pkgchk -f

This command will correct improperly set directory and file attributes created during the install process.

install patches like this:

/usr/local/compile/sol21/100833-12/installpatch /usr/local/compile/sol21/100833-12

needs full paths...
