How many of you have installed Plan 9? What have you used it for? Did you go vanilla Plan 9 or something like Inferno or Plan9Front?
Have you gotten networking to work otherwise? I have it set to have dhcpcd to take care of things, but ip/ipconfig keeps saying that it's failed (for reasons not listed in the error message)
I installed it on an old i486 laptop, it's neat I guess but I'm not a fan of mice (or in this case a trackpoint) in general. I tried to change the resolution but I forgot the laptop's native res and there's no documentation online. I guessed the wrong resolution and now it doesn't boot. The install CD just wants to try and boot from the hard drive so I'll wipe the plan 9 partitions from a GNU/Linux CD and reinstall when I get a chance.
It's cool but it's too minimalistic for me. I don't know what I'd need to do to be able to port my favorite software to it like Quod Libet and Firefox. It only uses one monitor as apparently, multiple monitors are considered harmful.
i ran it with a bootloader I wrote myself! :)
only because the professor for the OS class at my school works on it though. He's described how occasionally their usage/downloads graph will spike and he assumes that it's the same guy seeing if plan 9 still works on his shit from the 80s or something
