Hi,
What Options do you have on the grub screen?
The standard is :-
Solaris 10
Solaris failsafe
If you have a windows partition you will also have :-
Windows

If you select Solaris 10
The system will boot multi user and start the Xorg server with the 
dtgreet program
At this point you can select the command line prompt
You can then login as root and stop the dtgreet

svcs -a | grep login
enabled       16:21:06 svc:/application/graphical-login/dtlogin:default
disabled       16:21:35 svc:/network/login:eklogin
disabled       16:21:35 svc:/network/login:klogin
online         16:21:32 svc:/system/console-login:default
disabled         16:21:34 svc:/application/gdm2-login:default
online         16:21:37 svc:/network/login:rlogin

svcadm disable svc:/application/graphical-login/dtlogin:default

To remove the grub splash screen.
Remove the line in /boot/grub/menu.lst

splashimage /boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

Hope this helps :-)

Cheers
Richard.

Sounds like the install of grub has failed.
I would re-install Linux first then Solaris.

GRUB is unable to mount Solaris' root filesystem or is unable to read
the file /boot/grub/menu.lst; so the default boot menu doesn't appear;
and GRUB drops into command line mode.


At the "grub>" prompt, try commands like this:

   cat /<TAB>              <== press the TAB key after the slash

     (Shoudn't report read errors)


   cat /boot/grub/menu.lst

     (Should display the menu.lst configuration text file)


   cat (<TAB>             <== press the TAB key after parenthesis

     (Should list the available bios boot devices)


   cat (hd0,0,a)/boot/grub/menu.lst

     (Should type the menu.lst file, specifiying the exact
     location of the root filesystem)

should I install the Exabyte driver for a VXA-2 tape drive?
I just got this tape drive to replace my Exabyte Eliant 820, and boy is it fast! Whoosh! Only problem is that Windows shows this as an "unknown device" in the System Control panel. On the Exabyte web site they do have a driver for Windows, but they say not to use it if you use backup software that has its own driver. My backup software does have its own driver, so I've been able to use this drive OK. But Windows is always complaining about the "unknown" device, so I thought that I could fix that by simply installing the Exabyte driver. Any reason not to? -Andy &qu...

3Com 3C905-TX Installation w/ WinXP
Folks, I bought a 3Com 3C905-TX ethernet card to set up a home network with. However, I can't get it to install under XP. XP cannot find any drivers for it. This card supposedly has native support built into XP. I've also tried downloading drivers for it and pointing the add hardware wizard to them, but, it doesn't recognize any of the drivers. I know others have gotten this card to work - its supposed to be plug and play under XP. What am I doing wrong ?

Help uninstalling/installing Python 2.4
Guys/Gals I've messed up my Python 2.4 install. I'm really new to Python (and Linux for that matter) and really wanted to try Python out. I have mandrake 10.1. The first thing I did was uninstalled via rpm Python 2.3 and Tkinter 8.3 (I now realize that was a mistake, since I could have both version installed with no problems). I then downloaded Python2.4 ran ./configure make and make install... voila I had Python installed... Tk calls did not work, the output from Python when running a program stated that I probably did not have TK installed. I got and installed TK 8.4 an...

Installing Linux "more or less from scratch"
Hi, I'm wonder at what degree this scenario is realistic. I tend to believe that it's going to be almost impossible, but maybe I'm just misinformed. The thing is, I'm more or less fed up with the whole being hostage of Linux distributions, availability of upgrades, etc. It gives me that same feeling of learning to program C++ with Visual C++ (i.e., like you're not learning to program but learning to use an application and memorizing a few recipes to do certain things) So, say that I want to install a kernel as downloaded from www.kernel.org, and install ...

NIS+ and Solaris 10

where to install cpan modules
I've installed CPAN modules before, but that was back when I was a windows user and had an activestate install, which was, btw, an excellent software product, given the platform it runs on. It was always important to put modules in the right place. I'm trying to figure out what that place is, and in the CPAN faqs, is says I can divine it from the following command: # perl -V Summary of my perl5 (revision 5 version 10 subversion 0) configuration: Platform: osname=linux, osvers=2.6.24-23-server, archname=i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi uname='linux rothe...

SLED 10/SUSE 10.1
Just talking the desktop. Two questions:- 1. What is one buying with SLED (9 but soon to be 10), and for how much? Currently (for example) the price seems to be $50 (per seat?). Is that per year? By contrast, the boxed 10.1 can be installed on multiple machines, but support only for one? 2. Is there (will there be) a technical/content difference when 10 comes out? i.e. what way will it differ from 10.1? As you may gather, I have tried to read up on it, seen several favourable reviews of SLED 10 beta, but nothing that tells me how much, for what, and compares it with SUSE 10.1 B Gruff wro...
