  8:28 PM - OpenDarwin? Nope, won't open.
Well, now I find myself with an expendible Pentium II on which to play. I tried OpenDarwin - just because they said the install CD works on "some" IDE systems and I was curious whether mine was one. But it wasn't. Solaris didn't get corrupted by the attempt, so I still have that for awhile.

I've been thinking, I said a few posts ago that rpm based systems must be flawed, since they tend to degenerate over time, especially when combined with customized builds. I still think that's true. However, I should say Sun's package system is really no different. The only difference is I didn't update core libraries or the kernel with custom builds on the Solaris systems I've used at work (and couldn't even if I wanted to), so there was less opportunity for the bit-rot to set in.
