Learn How to Use Package Manager in Your Language

For those who are new to OpenSolaris, Sun has prepared a short video introducing the Package Manager, or the graphical user interface (GUI) for the Image Packaging System (IPS) introduced in OpenSolaris 2008.05. Package Manager lets you install/uninstall software to OpenSolaris, which makes it one of the most important tools. The screen-cast takes only 8 minutes and explains how to use the Package Manager for the common tasks. Now the best thing: you can watch the video while listening to a pleasant voice in your language. The following languages are covered: English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Spanish. If you don't speak any of the languages listed, here is another incentive: it's a nice opportunity to hear how each of the languages sounds like. And you will also learn that Package Manager is диспетчер пакетов in Russian.
