Solaris 7 5/99 Release Notes (SPARC Platform Edition)

Interactive Installation Issues

New JumpStart Behavior

When you turn on a system with the JumpStartTM software already installed (this includes new systems and preinstalled systems on which another installation has been performed) in the Solaris 7 as well as the Solaris 2.6 operating environments, Solaris Web Start's introductory screen is displayed. You can now exit Solaris Web Start and perform a JumpStart installation.

Solaris dtlogin Screen

The Solaris 7 as well as the Solaris 2.6 operating environments default to a login screen when you initially boot your workstation, regardless of which desktop you are using. You can select your desktop from the login screen. The login screen requires the user's name and password. Your desktop is displayed upon authentication of your login name and password. For more information about the login screen, see the dtlogin man page (provided with the Solaris Common Desktop Environment (CDE) man pages) or the Common Desktop Environment: Advanced User's and System Administrator's Guide.

dtlogin Notes for System Administrators

A system administrator who is new to CDE needs to know about CDE's graphical login program, dtlogin. Review the dtconfig man pages.
