Re: ATI Radeon 9200 / 9600 on a 2.6.x kernel
It is the same:
[19:03:35] reykjavik (grajea01) (~) : uname -a
SunOS reykjavik.dnsalias.net 5.9 Generic_112233-12 sun4m sparc
[19:03:37] reykjavik (grajea01) (~) :
I don't know all the historical details, but up to 2.6 the OS could be
called SunOS 2.5.x. After that it was SunOS 5.6 (the major version #
jumped 3 notches).
Then much later (I might be wrong a bit) you could call it either SunOS
5.6 or Solaris 6, SunOS 5.7 or Solaris 8... SunOS 5.10 / Solaris 10.
Again, I might be wrong on the specifics, as I started using Solaris at
version 7. Nowadays my OS of choice is SunOS 5.9 as most of the servers
I manage are on that platform/version.
