Now that OpenSolaris is out on the street one may like to have things like VLC and Mplayer installed but may not be about to find anything in the pkg.opensolaris.org IPS respo.
This is just a short howto on getting Blastwave working with OpenSolaris using IPS in just *2* easy steps.
1) Add Free repositories to your IPS / PKG tools configuration:
$pfexec pkg set-authority -O http://blastwave.network.com:10000 blastwave
$pfexec pkg authority -H
opensolaris.org (preferred) http://pkg.opensolaris.org/
$pfexec pkg refresh
2) Installing _Stuff_ :
$pkg search -r vlc
$pfexec pkg install IPSvlc
and that's it !
Oh, A side note; I like to have OpenOffice and NetBeans installed from pkg.opensolaris.org
We can do this as follows:
$pfexec pkg install netbeans
$pfexec pkg install openoffice
