The first day in the OSRL (Oracle Solaris Remote Lab)

My problem:

  • I had to check whether a library builds smoothly on Solaris 11 for SPARC as well as x86. My plan was to use a clean fresh environment without artifacts from previous projects.

The first half was already accomplished. I used a Virtualbox image of Solaris 11 on my 8GB laptop, I created a zone, added the development tools needed and I built the library. The SPARC build was the one who actually drove me to the remote lab.

An external partner will have to submit an application to access the lab. I received my access credentials last night.
