I've just switched to using OI for my internet access, so I'll be testing it a bit ;-)
The "Report a bug"option in the OpenIndiana pulldown in Firefox doesn't take you to a report form. In fact I couldn't find one anywhere.
The default installed system is starting 2 volume managers, rmvolmgr and gvfs-hal-volume-monitor though I couldn't find any documentation. With both volume managers running, once a device is mounted, it can't be unmounted. I turned off rmvolmgr, but I'd like to turn off gvfs-hal-volume-monitor also.
rmvolmger is managed by sfm, but gvfs-hal-volume-monitor doesn't appear to be. Something starts it, but I can find nothing under /etc or /lib/svc that references it.
The use of privilege escalation from the user account using sudo(1m) or similar seems to me a bad idea. It seems too easy to exploit. The browsers have so many vulnerabilities, that I won't run a browser as root. It seems to me that having a separate root account is much preferable to sudo for machines which have internet access. But then I just disconnected my LAN and installed a dedicated system for internet access.
