Thread: Anybody here actually collect Unix stuff?

    Bah, not what I experienced, and watching video on you tube confirmed that.

    Besides, the old software is no more availabe from Sun/Oracle.

    Managed to locate a copy of SRSS 5.1 and installed it on my Solaris 10 Tadpole. Wow, it's quite good! I was even able to play a few games with it, and that's with just a little 400MHz CPU doing the work. Even audio wasn't too bad over the LAN. Stuff that does direct video access won't work, of course (Quake refused to run, but GNOME Stones did).

    Is that the sunray laptop version? I've noticed a few of them on ebay from time to time, I don't have any sun systems to use SRSS with but they looked like nice portable terminals. How do they work with xdmcp? I can't imagine they're compatible with the X2 Go server/client setup (still not sure how that works since it requires its own server software).

    edit: oh looking back, the tadpole is the ray, I thought you meant it was a tadpole laptop acting as the server

    Well, actually, there's two Tadpoles in that picture. The Tadpole UltraBook IIi laptop at left is indeed the server (running Solaris 10 and SRSS 5.1). The Tadpole M1400 on the right, which has a Celeron CPU probably more powerful than the UltraBook's, is the client.

    Precisely: Solaris! On Linux, it has never worked this way, and the setup has been too much complex.

    A member of my squad opened a topic here collecting videos and stuff about "thin clients" and stuff.

    I have been trying to find SRSS for my Sun Ray 1. Would you mind sharing the software, if you don't mind?

    I don't want to get Ellisoned, but I'll just say that if you look around on the INTERNET you may find the software in various ARCHIVE locations that are downloadable.
