    I successfully upgraded an snv_134 installation to OI_147.  I noted that the VB installation was an old one so I uninstalled it & attempted to install VB 3.2.8.  The installer would not install the bits for USB integration.  I think this was due to the rebranding.  It no longer thought that I was doing this on OpenSolaris, so it thought I should be using the OSE version.  There is a comment in the "Installing or Upgrading" section about using VB from the repository, but I do not find one. How do I fix this USB problem?

    Can some guidance be given regarding what license these logo artworks are distributed under?

    1. It appears that the current logo is MIT licensed.

    To be clear....if a graphic artist created a wallpaper for OI could he post it on the web with the OI logo on it and comply with MIT?

    Anyway, is there a place for people to file issues/bugs/enhancement requests?

    Has anyone thought about registering the "OpenIndiana" trademark? Just something to think about.

    Graphics Specification and Guidance

    We should all be mindful as to the OiOS ultimate graphics goals whether from corporate sponsorship or individual graphics contributors. There are no end of artwork ideas and wonderful creations from all sorts of skills levels.However to focus ideas the following specifications have been identified after an extensive period of assessment.

    A summation of direction and marketing plan for Graphics formation guidance, would be as follows:


    Placement historic market segment : Enterprise Data Centres, SME (Small, Medium, size Enterprises) and Professional Users.

    Product offerings: Enterprise Server, Enterprise Desktop and Enterprise Cloudstation.

    Colours identified in these market segments : Blacks,Silver,Greys,White,and Mid range reds,on the colour wheel.

    Graphics outlooks : minimalistic,easily changeable (with low resource input), adaptable, and subject matter associated with sector.

    Scalable and identifiable for inclusion within tight confines of build (possibly maximum of 4 digits or logo space).

    Must be restful on the eyes for long periods of use but provide enough contrast for visually impaired users.


    When encouraging contributors it must be relevant to these guideline.

    Good example of theme suited for Oi :
