Re: [orca-list] open solaris

Yes, I tried the web version and it runs well. The only problem is that I'm not able to read the table presented with the devices. I had to save the report in html and then I could read it.
Best regards

I don't actually know what is wrong and how to solve it, but it appears that the java access bridge is not finding the native dll. If other java GUI applications work fine with the java access bridge, then all I can assume is that the bat file is messing up something to do with the system paths. If this guess is correct then it should be reported as a bug against the device detection tool. Have you tried the web version?

What can I do to solve this? Java access bridge works well on all other 
applications I have.

Any help is apreciated.

I just realised I forgot the link to the device detection tool page. It

Admittedly number of audio devices supported is poor, but it is not
quite as bad as it seems on the live CD (although we do need audio
working then for installation with speech output). I would suggest
looking at the page of the device detection tool. Other than the tool
itself to confirm whether your hardware will be supported, there are
links to the officially supported devices and third party drivers. It
seems that there is a third party (not tested by the sun test tool)
driver for the SB live.

As for the package manager, it does work with orca, but unfortunately
it loads data at the beginning making orca unresponsive and then
dynamically adjusts the lists as you navigate, again slowing up orca.
So whilst it can be used, it isn't a practical option. You may find
the commandline tool pkg more useful.

I haven't a clue about the user options, I normally do all my user
management from the commandline in Linux.

Hi, I got open solaris to run on a older computer. It is a great
system, but here are three things I found.
My main problem is that no sound card I tried was supported other
than my USB speakers. Even my soundblaster live that works with
everything didn't work.
Second, the add remove software seems to be accessible, but all I
heard was updating packages. I waited several minutes and never did
hear anything else.
Last, and this is probably just a difference from what I was use to.
In the user account settings, I didn't see a tab for setting user
privileges, or a setting to tell if the user is a administrator or
desk top user.
    Other than that the system seems very good. But is anything going
to be done to support more soundcards. With out that support a lot of
people will not be able to use this system.
