  1. Hi Mr Tribblix, I have Sandybridge PC (intel hd 3000) which I want to install Solaris. At least I'd like to have accelerated graphics support.

    From OI releases I know that 2016.10 has usable intelhd support but at the same time it drop 32-bit kernel. I like to be able to run it on 32-bit VM too (just in case). Which 32-bit Tribblix version suit me the most?

    Also it seems hipster use GCC, does Tribblix still use Solaris Studio? because I want to run some oracle free software (binaries) if possible.

  2. If you want to run a 32-bit kernel, then use the 0m20 release - while some of the updates had 32-bit parts, they stopped working a while before actual removal.

    Any Solaris binary that supports Solaris 10 should work fine - the fact that the OS is built with gcc makes no difference. (But a lot of the newer Oracle releases only support Solaris 11 which isn't compatible.)

    Not sure about graphics support - Tribblix is fairly old and needs updating (but works on all the hardware I have access to, which is fairly old when it comes to desktop machines).
