Updated OpenSolaris - Laptop to SNV_98

Now I upgraded to SNV_98 on my OpenSolaris-Laptop.

During the upgrade I got an error because the ROOT-ZFS was not the last one,
I booted. Seem's as if there was a problem during the last update.
So I booted the system witht the last boot-environment which was the source
( used the most space on the filesystem ) and deleted the later created
environments with
beadm destroy


After this a refresh was executed and the SUNWipkg package was updated.

pfexec pkg refresh
pfexec pkg install SUNWipkg@0.5.11-0.97
pfexec pkg image-update

and the system worked again:

ewer@solewer:~/Desktop$ beadm list
BE Active Mountpoint Space Policy Created

This is a greate advantage compared to the live upgrade system available
in former solaris releases. The live upgrade worked also like a charme, but it
really needed another installation of the system with the whole disk space.
Here you can see that 8 different systems are installed.
