Loading... please wait.
  • The first thing I do after a fresh install on Solaris:
    • install gcc (if not already)
    • mv cc cc.orig; ln -s gcc cc
    • install gtar
    • mv tar tar.orig; ln -s gtar tar
    • install latest perl (not the package)

    Next, install Solaris patches. Then, I go to sunfreeware [] and install the following packages:

    • binutils (watch your PATH)
    • openssl
    • openssh (and its dependencies)
    • top
    • latest vim

    Then, I go back and install 100 or so of my favorite Perl modules, but that's another story. :)
