Jonathan Perkin has posted an interesting blog entry entitled
"apt-get" and 5,000 packages for Solaris10/x86
about using pkgsrc and the binary package manager pkgin on Solaris 10/x86. In pkgsrc, we can get conditioned to the fact that package management, in a coherent, well-controlled way; it's nice to see this gaining further traction in Solaris circles too.
Oh, and on a historical note - Solaris was the first non-NetBSD platform for pkgsrc. I wonder if anyone remembers when it was committed (without resorting to cvs logs)?
