Solaris 10 which package do I need
In Solaris 11 package management got a lot better and is almost as good as APT in the Linux world. In Solaris 10 not so much. A lot of times I find myself comparing systems and trying to track down which package I need for a specific binary. The pkgchk command can help here:
# pkgchk -l -p /usr/bin/pdftops Pathname: /usr/bin/pdftops Type: regular file Expected mode: 0755 Expected owner: root Expected group: other Expected file size (bytes): 22316 Expected sum(1) of contents: 15618 Expected last modification: May 17 22:40:06 2012 Referenced by the following packages: SUNWevince Current status: installed
And of course install from CDROM as follow.
# pkgadd -d /mnt/Solaris_10/Product/ SUNWevince
Be warned here your nightmare starts when the package management starts pointing out all the dependencies.
