    Dear All the Openindiana developers.......

    Hats off to you.

    You have done great job.

    Remember?? I tried to update my OI-151a5 to OI151a6 on my PIV with 2.0 gm ram and 2.0 ghz processor. However, Impage was created,

    update was successful, but I could not boot in to GUI mode of OI151a6, May be I did not try everything as discussed in Illumos WIKI, however,

    I have another PC with Pentium Dual Core2.0 GHZ with 4 GB Ram and 1 GB NVIDIA graphics cardwhich I have packed and kept away.

    Sicne It is 64 bit machine, with OI-151a5 side by side with windows 7 ultimate. I packed away my 32 bit machine for the time being and

    took out this powerhorse and updated to OI151a6. AND VIOLA........

    The update is successful and well it has detected my another network card with your new driver. hence when run device driver utility, all devices

    were latched with their respective drivers and it shows zero network problem.

    Well Only I wish to tell following improvements to be made which you stalwarts who are doing really GREAT GREAT GREAT job of keeping alive

    openindiana can do:

    They are as follows:

    1. Update for firefox and CMS such as Wordpress and Drupal (However, Wordpress does not display graphics when viewed from outside of my network.

    2. Inclusion of more and more CMS. such as Vanilla, phpBB and Plone, Django frameworks and bulletin boards.
    3. I wish to donate small amount to OpenIndiana Porject. Please help me do this.
    4. JAVA some versions of current firefox are not secure as per message hence firefox wants to disable the Java Addon. To sort out the issue.
    5. To fix a but for update from OI-151a5 to OI151a6 in case of 32bit machine. (Is it because of hardware incompatibility? Or What??
    6. Well, Gentlemen, I am not software professional and is an amateur guy in my early 50's who has developed passion for Opensolaris and then Openindiana.

    Congratulations to all of you for bringing out such as fantastic and wonderful, amazing OS.

    Kindly make Illumion as GUI version so that people like me can try it and may be fall in love,  thus we may have two grilfriends: 1 Openindiana 2. Illumion.

    Ok. My comments will keep coming as and when I find the time for this additction.

    For anyone upgrading who uses VirtualBox (tested with 4.2, could be true with older revs).

    When I upgraded and rebooted, the VirtualBox drivers would not load:
