Hi,

I am trying to install samba on one of our Solaris machines. Now I have two packages, one for Solaris 2.5.1 and one for Solaris 2.6.

uname tells me that I have SunOS 5.6 installed, so which Solaris does that correspond to? Is SunOS 5.6 == Solaris 2.6?

Greetings,

SunOS 5.6 is a component of Solaris 2.6. Solaris refers to SunOS plus various other bits but you can think of Solaris 2.6 and SunOS 5.6 as synonymous for most purposes.
