Porting on Open Solaris

These notes are taken as the Solaris port is occuring

  • Working on a pre-installed Solaris 10 machine
  • Download the mirror package and install it on the system from sources as root. You'll need the GNU make package from the below mirror server (pkgadd -d make-3.81-sol10-x86-local.gz)
  • Create a conf file in /usr/local/etc/mirror.conf containing:
            comment=Sun GNU tools
  • Start the mirror
    # mirror /usr/local/etc/mirror.conf
  • Install then as root additional useful applications
    # cd /export/home/sunfreeware/
    # for i in
                  # Nice to have

  • Configure sudo to allow your user to pass root commands easily (/usr/local/etc/sudoers)
  • Download Project-Builder dependencies
    $ wget
  • Install Project-Builder dependencies

  • Download the source of
    $ wget
    $ wget
  • Extract the sources
    $ gzip -cd ProjectBuilder-latest.tar.gz | tar xf -

  • Install the project
    $ cd ProjectBuilder-
    $ perl Makefile.PL
    $ make
    $ sudo make install
    $ cd ../project-builder-
    $ perl Makefile.PL
    $ make
    $ sudo make install
  • Test that project-builder is installed and working correctly
