OpenIndiana Install on VMware Workstation

by Roger Lund


I was discussing Unix distributions with a bud on facebook. Hal Rottenberg 

So I thought I would do a few posts on installs and results. 

We are going to kick things off with OpenIndiana.


OpenIndiana is a free and open-source Unix operating system derived from OpenSolaris and based on illumos. Developers forked OpenSolaris after Oracle Corporation discontinued it, in order to continue development and distribution of the source code. Wikipedia


For the ease of installation, I am installing these in VMware workstation. I used freebsd as the OS when I made a new VM.

Lets go ahead and grab the media.



Below I walk through the install process.







There we have it. I hope you enjoyed the post.
