      distributions which this release has been tested on (at the time
      of this writing) are: SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time 10 SP2

          Hello,

          Just a quick question: can we have an official position from Sun regarding support of earlier releases of Solaris with Java RTS 2.1? Our customer is currently running Solaris 10 Update 3 with current Recommended patches, and the 2.1 beta cyclic driver supported this version of Solaris. However with the official release version of 2.1, support for U3 disappeared (only U4 and U5 are now supported). Aside from "rubber stamping" the Solaris build via /etc/release, is there a technical reason why U3 is no longer supported? As long as our kernel is up to date, can we safely use 2.1? Or is it just a case of being unable to officially support and test so many releases of Solaris?

          Is this a general rule-of-thumb we can expect in future: only supporting the last 2 updates of Solaris 10?

          Your advice is appreciated.

          Thanks,

          Dave.

            Dave,

            There is no technical reason for not supporting S10u3 it is just current support policy to cater for the current (S10u5) and previous release (S10u4). I can't say what any future support policy might be.

            You should not have any issues running on S10u3 with the latest patches.

            Regards,

            David Holmes
