By migi on Jan 22, 2008
Finally all 6 parts of the presentation "Create your own OpenSolaris IPS repository in a Weekend" is out.
Part 1: Common Build Environment
Part 2: Building Packages Using CBE
Part 3: Building pkg(5) (from sources)
Part 4: Setting up IPS repository
Part 5: Sending Solaris packages to the IPS repository #1
Part 6: Sending Solaris packages to the IPS repository #2
Glynn Foster wrote some instructions for happy Indiana users, that explains how to build spec-files on the Indiana. It is worth trying and sharing experiences. Please let me know if you successfully build spec-files on Indiana :-)
Also Damien Carbery pointed that CBE shouldn't be installed as root user, but I found this a little simpler than explaining how to install CBE using extended user attributes (man -s 4 user_attr).
Once again thanks for all the e-mails and comments and I hope that soon I will be able to download OpenSource software from your IPS repositories!
