Post OpenSolaris Installation Tasks

After completing the OpenSolaris installation and rebooting the Operating System, review the following post installation tasks and, if necessary, perform the tasks that are applicable to your system.

Installing Device Drivers to Support Additional Hardware

The Device Driver Utility enables you to connect to the Image Packaging System (IPS) and use it to search for device drivers for hardware in your system that might not have a driver installed.

To start the Device Driver Utility, choose Applications > System Tools > Device Driver Utility.

Installing Updates

After installing the OpenSolaris 2009.06 operating system, you may find that some of the software applications that you use on a regular basis are not immediately available to you. You may also want to check for the latest updates and fixes available after the operating system was released. You can install software applications or package updates from a package repository, by using either the Package Manager GUI client that is used by IPS or the IPS command-line interface (CLI).
