Installing Guest Additions for OpenSolaris

That's two down, one more to go! OpenSolaris is the third operating system I'll cover in this chapter. This is the free open source alternative to the popular Solaris operating system, so the steps to install Guest Additions on OpenSolaris apply also to Solaris.

Note

In the following exercise, I'll use an OpenSolaris virtual machine named OpenSolarisVB on a Windows XP host. You can download OpenSolaris from http://www.opensolaris.com/get/index.jsp, create a new virtual machine, and install OpenSolaris on it to follow the exercise.
