134b is update to 134 that was released by Oracle AFTER releasing
Solaris Express, which in turn, came after OpenIndiana 147.
OpenIndiana 147 could be updated from snv_134 (not 134b).
One can update from previous OpenSolaris to snv_134 specifying release
version when doing image-update. And then do update to OI_14x.
beadm create snv-134
beadm mount snv-134 /mnt
pkg –R install /mnt entire at 0.5.11,5.11–0.134
bootadm update-archive –R /mnt
beadm unmount snv-134
beadm activate snv-134
I don`t think anyone mentioned yet managing of updating from snv_134b to
If anyone managed to update from 134b to oi_148, please tell so.
