Desktop

My OpenSolaris Desktop gave trouble for about a week. It wouldn’t get to the BIOS prompt and sends a series of beeps when switched on. Didn’t get a chance to work on it for about a week, but finally managed some time to open the box over this weekend. All I did is to yank out the memory banks and insert them again. The system started working again. Not sure how and why. But the system is functional now and the memory is seen by the OS:

spurthi@agent007:~$ prtconf | head -2
System Configuration:  Sun Microsystems  i86pc
Memory size: 2015 Megabytes
spurthi@agent007:~$

Now my OpenSolaris desktop is back into operation.Phew!

BTW, this is the first time I opened the system after it is built in September 2007. Lot of dust to clean up :-).
