New laptop arrived… ;-)

I’m excited, today my new laptop did arrive.

It’s a Toshiba Tecra M9 (Type PTM91E-04Y03WGR) with an additional 1 GB RAM.

So, my topic of the week will be: Setting it up to run Nevada (starting with the actual build 84!), using Live Upgrade to keep it current, and still having Windows (yes, sometimes you simply need it (my DVB-T USB Stick for example only has Linux or Windows drivers, so as I do not want to run Linux, I will need Windows)).

It seems, I will need three primary partitions then:

1. Windows (NTFS)
2. Windows shared Data (FAT32, as Solaris can not yet read NTFS)
3. Solaris

Inside Solaris I will set up multiple slices, one for the BE (Boot Environment) one for the ABE (alternate Boot Environment) and one for use with ZFS (to host /home, /export/home, and the images for xVM Server and VirtualBox).

Then I will add VirtualBox, Compiz and will set up the “Suspend to RAM” feature as described in the entry before…

So, stay tuned! I’m living in exciting times and environments!
