Thanks for your message. I tried to download and install this, but there kept appearing more packages that I didn't have, had to download, and install. Eventually it was one i couldn't find (gdk-pixbuf-config).
I think in the bigger picture this is one of the things holding back broader adoption. As much as I love OpenSolaris and ZFS, there's maybe not enough resources to make this a bit easier to use. Everything has to be a bit of a chore. For doing stuff like setting up proper ZFS filesystems, it's fair to expect the user to need to invest some time learning. "zpool" is such a powerful tool, allowing so many new things, that it requires some education. But, c'mon: CD burning? This problem was solved a decade ago. I like Nero, because I can aggregate various directories, click twice, and my DVD comes out verified five minutes later. The idea that i have to track down packages, or deal with Brasero (which I'm sure can be configured; I just don't want to spend the time for something that I already know how to do otherwise), just raises the barrier unnecessarily for people who want to try out OpenSolaris, get it working, and then explore its compelling new features. People are rightfully worried about the future of OpenSolaris, but by having some basic things be so difficult and time-consuming, just to get the basics of usability running, only exacerbate the problem by limiting adoption. So I reiterate my question: has anyone gotten Nero Linux to run in a Zone, and if so, what's the best way to set it up?
