Thread: SunPCi II pro card / risky to install patch on Solaris 10?

  1. SunPCi II pro card / risky to install patch on Solaris 10?

    I have a SunPCi II pro card fitted with a 733MHz Celeron processor. I'd
    like to get it working in my Ultra 80 running Solaris 10, but gather
    there is no support under Solaris 10.

    This blog entry:
    http://blog.ekholm.org/2005/02/04/so...pci-ii-tricks/
    reports getting SunPCi 2 card, but IIRC this is a different card to the
    SunPCi II pro card.

    The above entry mentions installing patch 113616-06, which is listed on
    Sunsolve as:

    Status: RELEASED
    Patch Id: 113616-06
    Keywords: ultra5 ultra10 ultra30 ultra60 sunblade ideas sunpci cadence
    java plug-in lo0 keyboard staroffice mouse sunray ipv6 num_lock source id

    Summary: SunPCi2 2.3.2: for Solaris 7, 8, 9 and sparc architectures

    i.e. no mention of a Sun Ultra 80, and no mention of Solaris 10.

    Has anyone here followed the instructions on that blog? I'm not over
    keen on the idea of installing a patch for a different version of the OS
    and which seems to be aimed at different machines, but this is an
    unsupported product on that operating system, so perhaps I just have to
    do it anyway.

    Comments?

    I've installed SunPCi2pro in my Blade 2500 with Solaris 10 following the
    same basic steps as in the blog with no problems. The Patch doesn't
    change anything in Solaris, it just updates SunPCi2.

    Same procedure (no patch applied) on a Blade 1000 with SunPCiII-Pro and
    SunPCiIII. It works but it's "unstables" (i.e. sunpci crashes under many
    circumnstaces, a lot of problems, etc.)

    Have fun!
