I tried it on an r5xx card and got the same thing. I haven't seen the real
solaris so maybe it is doing the right thing and I was just expecting more.
Still no X, a slow boot and prefdm respawning fast enough to get warnings about
I'll grab the normal livecd and see how that works in a day or so.
The pretty Solar plugin never works on the F10 livecd. This is expected
behavior, due to the fact that we didn't have time to work out a clean
way for the livecd to load the DRM kernel modules necessary for Kernel
ModeSetting to kick in at boot. KMS does load on the livecd, but not
before plymouth starts (it loads once the livecd mounts the root
filesystem and udev loads the DRM modules).
