First step towards a microsolaris

I doubt I'm the first to have complained about the size of default Solaris package clusters and weird package dependencies. Doug Scott has some good news for fans of Solaris minimalism. Doug posted this excellent mini-howto explaining the very first step in creating a stripped down Open Solaris distribution. It should be possible to make an opensolaris distribution that is at least as small as DSL When booted into the miniroot I see that zpool, pkgadd and mount are available. What more could you need? ;-)
