Getting started

OpenIndiana works on most x86 PCs (help us support SPARC).

From 2017.04 onwards running on 32-bit systems is not supported anymore and the userland is being migrated progressively to 64-bit only. As usual 32-bit libraries and core applications are still delivered and maintained for the sake of backward compatibility (but only when running a 64-bit kernel).

To check if your hardware is supported, you can refer to the illumos HCL and the OpenIndiana Community HCL; alternatively, you can boot a Live install media and run the Device Driver Utility (ddu).

For instructions regarding downloading, preparing and installing the images, please refer to the OpenIndiana Handbook.
