grub-sunos: The GRand Unified Bootloader as modified by Sun / OpenSolaris1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0]

This package contains the Sun Microsystems / OpenSolaris fork of GRUB - the GRand Unified Bootloader.

Although the T2 project and sponsors already invested significant resources to fix USB CD boot problems in the main T2 GRUB package, in 2008 new problems came up that where already fixed in the Sun OpenSolaris flavour. Additionally this version of GRUB implements PXE UNDI Network Stack support, and thus allows network booting on newer machines and chipsets, in contrast to the official version of GRUB which requires per-chipset drivers to access the NIC.
