1.5 weeks ago, I asked how to obtain the licensing information needed
for Sun to give me a new license on a new machine for SunPC 3.0
- Sun technical support came through, after a few rounds through
their voice mail labyrinth. The licensing scheme is obsolete,
so it took awhile to get to someone who still knew how it worked.
Running "sun_license -m" bypasses the licensing diskette, and allows
you to see the magic key code, and enter a token Sun recites over the
phone. I haven't actually done this, because:
- SunPC 3.1 doesn't use the user-surly licensing scheme, and may be
available at no charge if one harasses Sun enough.
- The user wanting to do DOS emulation is happy, I swapped his antique
SLC for a venerable Sun 386i, c/w floppy disk and DOS 3.x emulator :)
- A few correspondents expressed interest in buying my 486 acclerator
card. I will check with the owner.
Sun technical support - especially Mike(?), Dennis and Gordon.
