    I am trying to install Cadence IC610 (IC-614 06.14.506 Solaris 10)
    suite on OpenSolaris 2009.6 version.

    It seems that all the installation and configuration process using
    Installscape are finished without problem,
    but I encounter an error message like the following when I try to
    launch virtuoso design environment.

    virtuoso: ERROR: The command /tools/cadence/IC610/share/oa/bin/
    sysname returned an error status:
    virtuoso: INFO: Note that OpenAccess (OA) requires running the
    Configure phase.
    virtuoso: See the "OpenAccess Installation and Configuration
    Guide" before
    virtuoso: you complete the configuration step. This manual is
    included with
    virtuoso: the Cadence product documentation.

    [1] Exit 1 virtuoso

    First of all, can I run IC610 on OpenSolaris machine? Is IC610
    Solaris10 (x86) version compatible with OpenSolaris? I tried this way
    since OpenSolaris is mostly compatible with Solaris 10, so I wanted to
    give it a shot.

    If they are compatible, does anyone have any suggestion to solve this

    Thank you in advance.

    Ah, you've got those Oracle OS licensing blues, huh?
    Well, first, let's actually read the error message, right?

    sysname is a utility that the Virtuoso wrappers use to figure out what
    platform they're on; what OS version, what hardware type, etc. It
    uname w/various options, it snoops installation status files in /etc,
    like that. It's just a shell script.

    In your case, you want it to return something like "sunos_510_x86",
    but it's returning "unknown" because one or more of the clues it's
    looking for aren't there. You could try to fix that, but there's a
    in the script that sure makes it look like you want to do something

    export OA_UNSUPPORTED_PLAT=sunos_510_x86 (bash)
    setenv OA_UNSUPPORTED_PLAT sunos_510_x86 (tcsh)

    ....and try again. Or just run Linux, which would have the advantage
    of being supported (both by the OS supplier and by CDNS)!
