Does anyone know if Solaris 11 (Sparc version) supports mounting ext3/ext4 or even better Btrfs volumes ?

Most of the topics I find on the web are quite outdated (2006/2007) and reference old versions of Solaris which were pretty unfriendly to Linux oriented FS.

I was hoping that the situation changed, so if you have any info or pointers, I'd really appreciate.

Thanks per advance,

Thanks, are the Sparc packages available as well ? – devlearn Oct 15 '12 at 9:48
I've no idea. Discover someone's using Google. – poige Oct 15 '12 at 10:53

Not out of the box - you'd have to find add-on filesystem modules, like those referenced in the comments.
