  SunOS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
SunOS was the version of the UNIX operating system developed by Sun Microsystems for their workstations and server systems until the early 1990s.
SunOS used the OpenLook windowing system, in later Solaris releases they also introduced CDE.
Solaris man pages are labeled with SunOS, and the startup sequence displays it, but the term "SunOS" is no longer used in Sun marketing documents.

 Solaris Operating Environment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The shift to a System V code base in SunOS 5 was marked by changing the marketing name to Solaris 2; thus SunOS 5.0 was marketed as Solaris 2.0.
The term "SunOS" is still used to refer to the underlying operating system itself, and Solaris is considered to be the SunOS operating system plus a graphical user environment, ONC+, and networking and other enhancements.
SunOS is still used as the term to describe the core of Solaris.

 FAQ: Sun Computer Administration Frequently Asked Questions
In SunOS 4.x the amount of swap space and Virutal memory are one and the same so you need at least as much swap as real memory.
SunOS 4.1 and later shouldn't get "inode: table is full", as that table is dynamically allocated; SunOS 5.0 should dynamically allocate entries in most if not all of those tables.
SunOS 4.1.3 has been reported to run on the SPARCstation 10 model 412/512 and the 600 model 412/512, but this configuration is not supported by Sun.

Provide SunOS 4.x behavior for all library routines and system calls, including those with new interfaces or different behaviors: even if the interface to or behavior of the calls differs, this mapping ensures that the SunOS 4.x binaries will get the expected behavior.
For SunOS 5.0, and subsequent releases, all of these functions are changed to perform their functions through the Name Service Switch.

Under SunOS 4.1.x, there is a "#B=" at the top of /var/yp/Makefile, uncomment and change this to "B=-b" and setup NIS in the usual fashion.
SunOS 4.1.3 and later has been reported to run on multiprocessor SuperSPARC configurations of the SS10, SS20, and 600, but this configuration is not supported by Sun.
In SunOS 4.x, this is usually caused by a blank line in /etc/services or in the services map on the NIS server.

In this example the bootserver is a Sun 3/80 running SunOS 4.1.1, so the exact syntax of the configuration files might be a bit different if you use another system.
There are some scripts that should setup anything for you if you have a SunOS bootserver, but these scripts didn't work for me and they have certain limitations, so I did everything the old fashioned way.
The SunOS version in this example is 4.1.1, but any other version should be okay too, as long as it supports your hardware.

The exceptions include programs that use the SunOS kvm library, and various system calls, ioctl()'s, or kernel semantics that are difficult to emulate.

 SunOS vs Solaris
All Sun workstations running SunOS 4.1.3 or lower are using the BSD version of UNIX.
SunOS is a BSD (Berkeley Software Distribution) based Unix operating system offered by Sun Microsystems for use on Sparc-based workstations for single CPU systems only.
The primary differences between SunOS 4.X and Solaris 2 are differences between the Berkeley version of tools and commands and the ATandT version of those same tools and commands.

SunOS release 4.x systems convey type rather than device attributes, which makes it difficult for programs and scripts to derive necessary information about devices.
SunOS release 5.6 conventions are slightly different from ATandT SVR4 device names because SunOS release 5.6 allows only eight user-configurable slices on a disk.
SunOS release 5.6 and SunOS release 4.x file systems are similar, but there are changes in the locations and names of system directories and files.

We had to introduce them because SunOS is unable to enable/disable compression using the standard way, so we created the additional codes which change the format and enable/disable compression at the same time.
As all of these are _generic_ drivers as is the REEL one i still prefer to use REEL as originally recommended by DEC and I've noticed no unwanted behaviour using REEL as the type.
