Default Help with OpenSolaris package management

I installed OpenSolaris 5.08 3 days ago and I have to say that I'm really liking it. Much easier to install then the Solaris 10 DVDs I have.

Anyway, I'm trying to add one of the Blastwave mirrors to the package repository.

First I tried this:

Code:
pkg set-authority -P -O http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/packages/solaris/csw/ blastwave
Then I tried to refresh the package listing:
Code:
 pkg refresh
I get the error that it can't find the catalog. I notice that the catalog was located down in ./stable/i386/5.11/.

So I removed the blastwave authority and re-entered it as:

Code:
pkg set-authority -P -O http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/packages/solaris/csw/ stable/i386/5.11/ blastwave
this now tells me that it can't find catalog/0.

My question is how do I add one of these blastwave mirrors as a repository. The blastwave.org site itself seems to be down....

I personally just added blastwave as another repository on OS 2008.05, it worked, but your method works, then your solluiton seems better.

if I use http://blastwave.network.com:10000/ I get connection refused errors. That why I was trying to add one of the mirrors from this list of blastwave mirrors.
