I have just installed OpenIndiana b147 on a new (to me) system that I
have just acquired.
The system is an original Sun Ultra 20 (not an m2 model)
I did upgrade the ram to 4 Gb, from the original 512Mb
plugged in a USB type 6 keyboard and a crossbow mouse.
the monitor is a Sun (rebranded) 19" LCD monitor.
The installation completed with out any issues or problems.
In trying to find out more about the system, I wanted to use prtdiag.
Usage of prtdiag, in any form promptly spits out this error message:
prtdiag: failed to load SMBIOS: System does not export an SMBIOS table
# truss prtdiag
shows a "failed to open SMBIOS:" error message
A Yahoo search of the error shows a few, but not many hits. Apparently,
this issue was somewhat common in the OpenSolaris build 2x and build 3x
Probably the best hit I found was this ::
with a comment from Casper Dik commenting that some information can be
obtained by running
smbios -B /dev/xsvc
Can my prtdiag be fixed or repaired? If this was some obscure hardware
I would understand if it couldn't.
