Method 1: This method uses another working opensolaris system to un-compress a copy of x86.eon image. Add the driver binary and driver.conf file to /kernel/drv/ and 64-bit binary to /kernel/drv/amd64 path where the image was unpacked. The image will then be repacked and transferred the back to the appliance.
/boot/solaris/bin/root_archive unpack x86.eon [path_to_unpacked_dir] cp rtls [path_to_unpack_dir]/kernel/drv cp rtls.conf [path_to_unpack_dir]/kernel/drvFor 64-bit EON you would also add
cp rtls [path_to_unpack_dir]/kernel/drv/amd64 add_drv -b [path_to_unpacked_dir] -n -v [driver_added_kernel_drv] /boot/solaris/bin/root_archive pack x86-new.eon [path_to_unpacked_dir]Method 2: On EON, enable virtual consoles and insert a pause in the updimg.sh script. Run the updimg.sh until the pause. Finally, switch consoles (ctrl+alt+FX, where X is the console number) and copy the driver binary and driver.conf to /mnt/upd/kernel/drv.
svccfg import /var/svc/manifest/system/vtdaemon.xml svcadm enable vtdaemon svcadm enable console-login:vt2 svcadm enable console-login:vt3now you can use ctrl-alt-F1/F2/F3 to switch between terminals
edit updimg.sh and change:
backup_repository echo -n "Press enter to continue after adding drivers " ; read x undo_mnt_lofsrun (if default path_to_img=/mnt/eon0)
/usr/bin/updimg.sh [path_to_img]/x86.eonWhen you see the mesg press ctrl-alt-F2, login and add your driver to /mnt/upd/kernel/drv. When done, ctrl-alt-F1 to switch back, login and press enter to complete updimg.sh. You should then have a new image with your added drivers.
Method 3: Get the current EON build kit and opensolaris DVD image and build your own appliance, including the needed drivers. This will require a working opensolaris install (snv_98 or higher, others should work) to run imgsol.sh. I will ask Al at Genunix to host these plus the 64 bit versions. I will add the rtls nic to the 64 bit image.
