OpenSolaris Bug and Workaround: Package Manager
By drapeau on Dec 07, 2009
Well, that's nice in theory but it didn't work for me, and there's a bug for that (here, check it out). Turns out that for now, you must name your preferred publisher "opensolaris.org". So the relatively simple workaround is to create a publisher called "opensolaris.org", and have it point to "http://pkg.opensolaris.org/dev/", then delete the original publisher that is called "opensolaris.org".
Worked for me, and now I'm using build 128 (b128) and it's working (mostly) like a charm. There are other minor things going on with that build, but I've been able to work around them so far with no problems. I'm happy.
