Betreff: Re: [OpenIndiana-discuss] Alternate web browsers?
Thanks for the instructions and I will start trying to get things in place,
but have a simple question as I am still new to using the Illumos based
Is there some documentation on doing this in a "zone" currently I had been
just running in user mode but thing that is in the global-zone actually.
You mentioned using a "virgin zone" and I need to figure out how to do that
although I have had just a little experience in this area and am reading up
on it more now, while coming from the Linux world which really does not
