Default where all packages OpenSolaris


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


pkg search -r libucb.so.1


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

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
The journey is better then the destination
