how to install rpm onto Solaris 10?
 
Hi guys,


¬*


We are trying to use rpm as our application’s package management
system on Solaris 10. I wonder if anyone has experience installing rpm onto
Solaris 10, preferably yum as well.


¬*


If I compile it on Solaris 10, there should be also a lot
gnu c libraries required I guess.


¬*


Thanks in advance

Not is necessary to use gnu c lib or gcc itself to use rpm on Solaris: for maximum portability i raccomend rpm5 (http://rpm5.org) of course. RPM5 has been ported to many platform, with a mixture of diverse compiler and different c library as ĶClibc. OTHO, if you want a simple porting of rpm5 on solaris 10 you can use the openpkg* http://www.openpkg.org/* project. AFAICT most client sun use it.

how to install rpm onto Solaris 10?
 
Hi hth,


¬*


Thanks for the great information!


¬*


I looked at openpkg first. It sounds
perfect from the features page on the web site, but it doesn’t seem to
have been active since 2006.


¬*


Then I looked at rpm5.org. I followed its
doc page, it shows that the most recent doc is http://docs.fedoraproject.org/drafts/rpm-guide-en/
. In section 19.1.1, it tells me to find rpm for various platforms at www.rpm.org/platforms/, over there, it
redirected me to http://www.sunrpms.org/ where
it provides Solaris 10 Sparc pkg of rpm. Oh yeah!


¬*


Point my mouse to the link, it shows that
it is actually rpm-4.0.4-sparc-sol10.pkg. I come back to rpm 4!


¬*


Anyway, I got a pkg package of rpm which should
be installable on Solaris 10. I will give it a go!


¬*


Cheers,


Yukun

yep

openpkg is very active, it is one of the principal member of rpm5, most solaris box run it and, if you like, has also had commercial support (http://www.openpkg.com)

Then I looked at rpm5.org. I followed its
doc page, it shows that the most recent doc is http://docs.fedoraproject.org/drafts/rpm-guide-en/

Sigh. Jeff Johnson, the "rpm" mantainer and developer for more than 10 years, work now on http://rpm5.org. And, let me repeat,* rpm5

is very portable on platform* different from* Linux: rpm of http://rpm.org* isn't so portable. Guess why in 2008 AIX 5.3 use rpm 3.0.5 (1999 )?

Some google search on the argument can help


JMHO, YMMV

Sounds cool from your email. Though I didn’t
see any openpkg release growing since 2006, I will give a go anyway.
