      Can GNU run on OpenSOLARIS Kernel?

In theory it should be possible.  However, why would we prefer
that to Linux?

    licence permits a fork in one entire new project that
    can be after be released under GPL?

The license of Solaris is incompatible with the GPL.
We could make a modified version of the kernel of Solaris,
but we could not release it under the GPL.  Linux is better
in that regard.
