  5. <sigh> Yes, and like literally everything I've ever tried to grab from one of
    their torrents, it's stone dead.

    On the shelf behind my chair seen in this picture


    where there's one SS20 atop the pile in the background center
    and a few more in another room. The OS packages are on this shelf:


    where, from left-to-right, are the original cases/boxes with
    original contents for:

    Solaris 1.1.2 for SPARC
    Solaris 2.5 Software Developer Kit, SPARC/x86 Edition
    Solaris 2.5 Desktop, SPARC Edition
    Solaris 2.5.1 Hardware 4/97, Desktop SPARC Platform Edition
    Solaris 2.5.1 Hardware 4/97, Server SPARC Platform Edition
    Solaris 2.6 Server SPARC Platform Edition
    Solaris 2.6 Desktop SPARC Platform Edition
    Solaris 8 2/02 SPARC Platform Edition
    Solaris 9 Sun Developer Software Enterprise Edition

    I still have tapes for SunOS 3.* and 4.*, too.

    The Solaris 1.1.2 above is also really Sunos 4.1.2 or 4.1.3
    IIRC. They hung the Solaris name on it because X11 was rolled into the
    install CD.

    No tapes for SunOs 2.*

    The FTP server had some problem, it works for me now.

    Solaris/SunOS can be installed on emulator via ISO image, too.

  10. FWIW: Solaris 1.1.2 = SunOS 4.1.4

    Likewise, SunOS 4.1.3 was Solaris 1.1, and then a bunch of subversion
    shuffle around to get 1.1.1 and 1.1.1B and the like.
    Doug McIntyre, Feb 15, 2012
  11. Solaris 1.1.2 comprises SunOS 4.1.4.
    Volker Borchert, Feb 15, 2012
  12. Solaris 1.1.2 contains SunOS 4.1.4.

    The only time i've used pb in the past few years was to find a sol 9 distro,
    which ebay vendors wanted ~70+ ukp. Yes, it took around 2 days of almost
    to 100's of kbytes/second to download, but it did get the job done. Just
    to have a play with sunscreen, which was shipped free with Sol 9...

    I still have a distro kit for 4.1.4, which was bought from sun uk for just
    over 100ukp. Long obsolete at the time, but was still using ss2 and lx class
    machines here at the time, for which it was a good fit. The old sun gui
    can also
    be found for linux, and makes even quite old laptops usable. Quite a dose of
    nostalgia etc.

    Also have 60meg tapes for sun 3 somewhere as well, though most of the
    older stuff
    of that age is most likely out there on the web now. The sun3 from all those
    years ago still works, though it lost it's ethernet h/w address some
    time ago and
    needs dose of looking at...

    That's criminal. Solaris 9 was available free on Sun's site at least
    up to August 2008 when I downloaded them:

  18. But you could also buy media kits, and they weren't free (although I
    think there were a few rounds of Solaris 10 that offered media for free).

    You could also buy subscriptions to keep up with the MUs.

    But if somebody has something and others are willing to pay $$ for it..

    That may have been true, but couldn't find it anywhere on the Oracle site
    when I looked. Am quite happy to buy a media kit from Sun uk, if it's still
    available and that os version is legal on at least some of the h/w here,
    so how this is "criminal", beats me...

    Examine again what others posted earlier in this thread:



    ebay vendors wanted ~70+ ukp

    It's not a stretch of the imagination to assume the above 3
    "suggestions" are outside the law.
