  • Well, OpenBSD has no problem bringing le0 up with the same cord and hub and everything, but Solaris 9 thinks there is "no carrier" and can't ping the gateway. ifconfig le0 up doesn't help. Think I might be at a dead end here, already.

    Oh, another mark of insanity to scare you away: insane version numbering. Solaris was SunOS. Solaris got added later, after they converted from BSD to SysV (wtf?!). Versions started at 1 again in Solaris so the thing had two different names and versions. But then they redid the numbering scheme mid-way through. To wit:

    SunOS 5.5.1 = Solaris 2.5.1
    SunOS 5.6 = Solaris 2.6
    SunOS 5.7 = Solaris 7
    SunOS 5.8 = Solaris 8
    SunOS 5.9 = Solaris 9

    Crackheads.
