Solaris 7 3/99 Online Release Notes (SUNWrdm)

SolarisTM Web Start Bugs

This section only describes known installation bugs that may occur when using Solaris Web Start, the browser-based program that enables you to install both the Solaris software and co-packaged software. These problems do not occur when using the Solaris Interactive Installation program.

x86 only: Cannot Move the Root File System (4046659)

You choose a system disk in Solaris Web Start, but you cannot move the root file system off the system disk afterwards. If you need to do this, use the Solaris Interactive Installation program instead of Solaris Web Start.

Products May Not Use All Reserved Space (4059182)

Solaris Web Start reserves disk space based on the total requirements of all the products that you install. If you check disk space allocation after installing but before using the products, you may find a substantial amount of apparently unused space. Some of this space may be taken up when you run the software; some of it may remain unused.

Workaround: If you want to allocate less total disk space than Solaris Web Start requires, use the Solaris Interactive Installation program instead.

x86 only: The Root '/' File Sytem Extends Beyond HBA Cylinder 1023 (4062008)

If a manual file system layout is used in Solaris Web Start, an error message may display after the start of an installation because too much space has been allocated in the root (/) file system.

Workaround: Restart Solaris Web Start and use Automatic File System Layout.
