For those who want to test out the new OpenSolaris Image Packaging System (IPS) but does not want to install the Indiana builds, here's how you can compile and build the IPS package, SUNWipkg and install it on a Nevada build. Not sure if it'll work on Solaris, do inform me if you know.
$ hg clone ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/hg/pkg/gate/or download source code at: http://src.opensolaris.org/source/xref/pkg/gate/src/
# make # make install cd ../SUNWipkg/../ pkgadd -d . SUNWipkgAlso, you can find instructions on how to create your own IPS repository here: http://blogs.sun.com/migi/entry/create_your_own_opensolaris_ips2
