New Hipster Handbook

As part of our documentation revitalization effort, we’re happy to announce a new end user documentation platform based on MkDocs. While still very much a work in progress, the Getting Started with OpenIndiana section of the new Hipster Handbook is nearing completion. However, much work remains to be done, and we cannot do it without the assistance of the greater OpenIndiana community. 

Please take some time to review the new documentation platform and let us know what you think. If you would like to assist with this effort, the docs team can be reached at Docs AT

Getting Started with OpenIndiana covers the following topics:

  • Introduction to OpenIndiana
  • Preparing for installation
  • Creating DVD’s and USB sticks
  • Booting OpenIndiana
  • Installing OpenIndiana
  • The Image Packaging System (IPS)
  • Managing Boot Environments
