Ok I'm a but green here, but was curious about the availability of adobe
flash, LibreOffice 3.4 and the latest version of Firefox for OpenIndiana.
Is there a list of "extra" repositories avail such as with RHEL/CentOS?
Secondly I initially tried to install the desktop version on a usb flash
device which did not go well the entire (default) took more than 12 hours to
get it on the stick. I was able to boot freeNAS off of it yesterday as well
as a few other OS's. Also when it was finally installed - i waited 30
minutes for it to boot up (after which i turned it off to track down a sata

flash. I am now using a SATA disk. but how and who do i notify to have them
look into this problem / possible bug?
Third after my sata install was complete and i got networking configured,
tried to use package manager to check for updates - it detected an update to
ZFS 0.5.11 (Build 5.11-0.148)
- anyhow I hit ok and got this:
