comment ls and vim color on SunOS 5.8/Solaris 8
The xterm shipped with Solaris 11 is recent enough, but then Solaris 11 shipped 12 years after Solaris 8 did - nothing from Solaris 8 is recent now.

comment X11 forwarding Amazon EC2 significance of sequence number in DISPLAY variable
It's not the sequence number - in X11, the sequence number is the identifier of each request, and is not included in the DISPLAY variable. It's the identifier of which server to connect to, called the "display number" in the X11 documentation.

comment An obscure autotools error with Epson iscan project
ltdl is part of libtool. Also, don't worry about matching the "273" when searching - that's just the line number in this particular configure script, not an error code.

comment Can all OSS for Linux be built to run on an Illumos based OS like OpenIndiana?
@AndrewHenle - no they don't. Making these packages build is part of Jonathan's job, and he's been increasing the number every quarter, so I would not be surprised if there's been many hours of effort to get that far. I personally find that many of the more common & well maintained packages build out of the box, thanks to autoconf & similar tools, but I also maintain upstream software at X.Org and know it takes effort there to keep that working cross-platform.

comment Can all OSS for Linux be built to run on an Illumos based OS like OpenIndiana?
For instance, the pkgsrc team statistics for their most recent release in April 2015 showed they successfully built 13092 out of 15246 packages in their collection for the SmartOS distro of illumos.

comment changing timezone in OracleSolaris 11.2
The first link, referring to rtc, is not about changing the timezone of the system clock, but the offset between the OS clock and the BIOS clock.

comment Why I can't export the Linux DISPLAY?
Sort of, since when export DISPLAY was created, only rlogin & telnet existed, and ssh was still years in the future.

comment File descriptor limits in /etc/system vs /etc/sysctl.conf vs /etc/security/limits.conf on Solaris
It is mentioned for Solaris or for Linux? I only see it in reference to Linux platforms.

comment File descriptor limits in /etc/system vs /etc/sysctl.conf vs /etc/security/limits.conf on Solaris
sysctl.conf is for Linux, not Solaris. Did you see a reference to it being used on Solaris somewhere?

comment Where can I use 'beadm'?
That picture shows the grub boot loader prompt, before you boot into Solaris. You need to boot Solaris before you can run Solaris commands like beadm.

comment Installing HDF5-1.8.13 on Solaris 11 - failed
The actual error is probably just before the *** Error code 1 line - what's shown currently is just telling you where in the build it failed.

comment I am seeking a Solaris 8 patch file
'withdrawn' means it has been made unavailable. Oracle is the copyright owner of the patch, if you cannot acquire it from them via support, then other methods would be copyright violations, and not up for discussion on this site.
