Default where all packages OpenSolaris

hi

i would like to know where i can find all packages on Open Solaris like we do on FreeBSD

on BSD we do pkg_add -r soandso
on Solaris you do pkgadd -d . soandso

i really would like to see alot more packages out there

i do know that there is a command pkg search -r nameofpackage

But all i really know so far is i am able to find dependency
files using that method such as this method.

But where do i find actual packages that work.

All i can find right no for working packages are here at

http://ocean1.ee.duth.gr/Solaris/


code:
pkg search -r libucb.so.1

INDEX ACTION VALUE PACKAGE

basename file usr/ucblib/libucb.so.1 pkg:/SUNWscp@0.5.11-0.90


code:
pfexec pkg install SUNWscp

Thanks in advance

i want to install kde and i do not mean like
the Belenix version as its horrible in my opinion.

i tried to install kde from differnt sites but perhaps its not meant for my version of Open Solaris the newest build.

Thank You

I've heard of this site. It has software, it may help you. It's specifically for Open/Solaris.

Hi, I am only a newbie at solaris, but maybe this can be of interest:
http://pkgbuild.sourceforge.net/
it is a tool to build some packages on solaris similar to rpmbuilder. You will have to compile the program but the list of avaliable programs seems to be more recent than blastwave's one.
You can find a list of the spec files here:
http://pkgbuild.svn.sourceforge.net/...s-extra/trunk/

and a small guide to install wine on solaris using pkgbuild (you can use it as an example)
http://wine-review.blogspot.com/2008...n-solaris.html

but I never tried pkgbuild before, so I don't know if it does work well, anyway I am trying it now...

As with the Linux distros, you should chose *one* binary repository and stick with it from the start, I mean load ON (Operating system and Network) then chose one only repo.

Also, GNUish last OpenSolaris has it's own package management, so, do not install legacy binary providers, or you get into trouble.

Also be certain to keep in mind that OpenSolaris has become a generic name for all non pure Sun Solaris products.

Analogy with Linux distros, all Linux kernel based, you cannot mix repos from Ubuntu with NovellSUSE or Mandriva and RHat.

hi

When you say Non Pure Solaris.i am assuming you are
refering to Anything Under Solaris 10.

It is alot you wrote there and i will try to keep it all in mind.

OR shall i just wait for Solaris 11 lol When ever that will be.

Solaris (whatever the version) is the Sun officially supported ON.
For which support is void if you do not use both official Sun packages and have Sun support contract.
This is the -stabel release, tested, supported, industrial grade,...

All the rest is "OpenSolaris".
As an analogy, RedHat RHEL vs. Fedora, NOVELL SUSE Enterprise vs. OpenSuse, ....
Sort of -current version.

Its all about marketing i guess.

Also BSD Started it and has been around the longest
and should deserve to be called Unix

With Open Solaris now you even rebuild it and do as you like with it.

it's not about 'deserving' - you have to pay BIG money to be called 'Unix'

Actually... not quite correct..

There are 2 "open source" package sites..
They are both used for Official Sun Installations..

BlastWave.org
SunFreeware.com


Differences:

Blastwave does dependency checking (much like OpenBSD packages and Ubuntu Linux package system)

Example: you choose to install pkg-x and it requires lib-a, lib-b and widget-c..

Blastwave will download and install the dependencies and *then* install the pakcage.
All Blastwave packages install in /opt/csw

SunFreeware packages also come on "Official" Sun Disks..
specifically in /etc/sfw /usr/sfw etc.. (sfw = sunfreeware)

SunFreeware does not do dependency checking *or* installation
You must check what the package requires and install it..

*Most if not all* Sunfreeware install in /usr/local

Both use
Code:
pkg-get install <pkg-name>
Blastwave pkg-get is installed in /opt/csw
Sunfreeware pkg-get (on the Official Sun CD) is in /usr/sfw/bin

As was stated..
Pick one and stay with it..

Personally, I use SunFreeware

Smile hi

First let me start off by saying thank you for your help
And i thank everyone else for their help as well here
Today i spent my day backing up my last drive in case i have any accidents.

SunFreeware does not do dependency checking *or* installation
You must check what the package requires and install it..

yes i am sure after toying and learning how to do simple things first,
like with that of blastwave ill want to venture into deeper waters at some point
by learning how to find dependencies on my own before installing a package.
Well not entirely on my own i may have to ask how at some point,

I removed Open Solaris and installed The Original Solaris Express
the first thing i installed was
GNUMPlayer-1.0rc2.pkg and SecondLife_i686_1_19_0_3-2008Feb25-snv.pkg
with the traditional pkgadd -d .

You need an account to use Second life 3d virtual chat but it is free.
Both work flawlesly with the exception of GNUMPlayer having to assign it a font, so it stops complaining was no big deal, as i keep a few on hand anyways.

As far as blastwave i will give it a try or perhaps The Sun you mention.
i will see which is the best route for me and if i am still unhappy or too confused at all of this install instructions and dependencies i can always go back to FreeBSD.

By the way i was unaware that blastwave installs dependencies like BSD till now.

For now ill play with blastwave.i just instalelld pkg-get then edited the file for a mirror near me not that i needed to but i was just following the steps.
Then from there i installed wget and when it asked about conflicting files i chose no. then went ahead and said yes to continue the install.

When i have a better understanding of all this i will go with Sun Free as you have.

Installation of <CSWwget> was successful.

Default Screensavers will not work for KDE on Solaris express.

hi

i had Just finished installing kde on Solaris Express about hour ago.

i configured KDE appearance to my preference as well as KMail.

i had been use to using Gnome so long i almost like it better,
even though i am familiar with using KDE as an all time favorite with BSD.

Everything looks really nice and all went well but screen savers will not work.

Also for some reason firefox seems faster going from site to site on KDE
then on Gnome.And i do not see how that can make any difference
Probally just a strange coincidence.

As for the screen savers on KDE i do not know why they wont work.
as all GL work fine under Gnome.

Last time (about a year ago) I could hardly compile any package on Solaris.
