Hi Andreas,

I found OpenIndiana last night and messed around with the installer this early a.m. (did not find my usb mouse, so I could not use it immediatly). I too have an interest in niche machines like Solaris and BSD, so I will return to this as I find it interesting.
That said, I am turning my attention to CMAKE and the existing infrastructure.

I have considered Open Solaris and FreeBSD for my former dos partition--I don't know if CMake will work on them, but I will investigate. Do you have a link for open solaris? When I checked a few days ago Oracle had branded everything and I prefer to not deal with Ellison if I can.

I did some work a while back to build Cog on SmartOS and OpenIndiana. I got it to compile and run, but the image couldn't do IO or respond to UI events. I've found VirtualBox handy for this sort of thing—you can get ready-made images for many operating systems, which saves installing and configuring a bare-metal installation. 
So you got as far as I did. After some thoughts I guess the heart beat Eliot introduced for Cog might be a possible cause of the problem.When I did my first Solaris compilations of the Squeak VM a couple of years ago I had to adjust the signal handler installation. Solaris needs re-registration after a signal has been caught. I will take a look asap.
