Has anyone successfully installed Solaris 9, 10 or OpenBSD on a Tadpole
Voyager IIi? I have the later version of the Voyager with built in Raptor
video. OpenBoot prom is the latest version offered: 3.10.3.
I was able to install Solaris 8, with the Tadpole patches. I also was able
to install Solaris 9 4/04 (u6?). However the tadpole drivers were not
compatible with the Voyager IIi (newer models only). Gnome and most of the
other stuff worked, but I guess I would like a little more.
I tried to do an upgrade, from Solaris 8 to Solaris 9 u8. The system failed
I am in the process of downgrading to Solaris 9 u6 to see if that works.
It looks like there is a project to provide OpenSolaris support for some of
the older Tadpole products. Anyone tried it?
