Taking OpenSolaris 2008.05 to a developer workstation

For the last week or so, I have been successfully using OpenSolaris 2008.05 on Tecra M2 laptop and I totally love it. 

 
Since the default installation of OpenSolaris 2008.05, I had to install few packages to make it a developer friendly. Here is the list that I have on my system. You could very well customize it - depending on your needs

Open a command line terminal window and run the following commands to get (you could go through the GUI route if you are GUI person)

    \* GCC, Sun Studio, Netbeans (Compiler and Developer IDE)

           pfexec pkg install gcc-dev sunstudio netbeans

    \* Apache, MySQL, PHP runtime

           pfexec pkg install amp

    \* VNC Client RDesktop (Allows remote connectivity to other desktop. You need VNC Client to connect to other Linux desktop and RDesktop to connect to Windows XP etc)

           pfexec pkg install SUNWvncviewer SUNWrdesktop

Hope, you find this useful.
