OpenSolaris b122 and ATI sb600/700 ahci

Updating OpenSolaris b121 to b122 results in kernel panic (NOTICE: spa_import_rootpool: error 5)

Upgrading to the b122 bits on my laptop resulted in a kernel panic and reboots upon boot attempt. See this bug:

My work-around for this is to boot into my working BE (b121) and do the following:

beadm mount b122 /mnt

copy from /kernel to /mnt/kernel these bits:


and these:



bootadm update-archive -R /mnt

My system then booted successfully to b122.

Facebook, bah!

Filed Under:

Do I really need to know every little thing in a person's day? Nope!

Communications and the dissemination of information have certainly come far. Too far in many instances, such as facebook. I've always found the service to be buggy and more annoying than it's worth. To my friends and family, I do value our relationships but do not need to know the smallest details of your day, day in and out.

I don't want to virtual water any virtual plants, or play any silly games. I do want to delete my facebook account (which I have now de-activated .. there is no link to 'delete' it, I have to send them an email to do so.) Enough said.

Quills Weblog Admin

Quills weblog admin portlet shouldn't display to non-privileged users.

A bug I encountered with Quills weblog product is the weblog admin portlet being viewable to non-privileged users. This was not a desired result, so off to google I went.
Luckily there was already a diff I could use to patch the offending code in parts/instance/lib/python/quills/app/portlets/

Here is the link to the diff: . Patch the file and the portlet is no longer viewable to non-privileged users.
