Solaris installation instructions hints


Solaris installation instructions hints


Special software requirements

  • git
  • sudo
  • mysql
  • PHP 5.2
  • wget

unzip and sendmail should be part of the base Solaris install. Other applications should be available on the companion CDs or:

In particular, git can be compiled easily by exporting the following environment:: export CFLAGS="-I/usr/sfw/include -I/opt/sfw/include" export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/sfw/lib:/opt/sfw/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"

Then the compile instructions bundled with git should just be followed plainly.

XXX: I had trouble installing the binaries, as git expects ginstall to be available in the path. I ended up adding the source directory in the path, which works fine for most uses.

The notebook section provides a way for you to store and share information with your group members. With the book feature you can:

  • Add book pages and organize them hierarchically into different books.
  • Attach files to pages to share them with others.
  • Track changes that others have made and revert changes as necessary.
  • Archive books that are no longer of interest to the group. Archived books can be reactivated later if needed.
