Flawless Upgrade to OpenIndiana (oi_147)

OpenIndiana Logo
I just upgraded from OpenSolaris’ developer build 133 (snv_133) to OpenIndiana’s first build (oi_147).

I followed the instructions found at the OpenIndiana Wiki. There’s a link to there from the OpenIndiana Download page.
So first i added/changed to the legacy repo/publisher and upgraded from snv_133 to snv_134, without any problems.

And then I switched to the OpenIndiana developer repo/publisher and did another “pkg image-update -v”, and it all went flawless. No errors of any kind.

I must say I have been impressed by the stability and performance of OpenSolaris and now OpenIndiana. Thumbs up! Recommended! Happy
