Introduction


Welcome to the archive of pre-compiled free software for Oracle/Sun Solaris 2.5, 2.6, and 7-10 operating systems. This project is an extension of an effort that has been providing Solaris software for both SPARC and Intel architectures since 1994. It is an outgrowth of the SunSITE project.

You will see a list of the programs ported to Solaris 2.5, 2.6, 7, 8, 9, and Solaris 10 for SPARC and Intel/AMD processors in the frame to the right. Select your architecture first, then the programs available will be listed in the window at the lower right. Click on the program you want and it will appear in the center windows. These lists will be updated frequently, so check back often.

Before you use any of the programs here, PLEASE read the documents at the links to the upper left, especially the Downloading/Installation, and FAQ links. You will save yourself a lot of time and email if you know what to do with the resources here before you download anything.

I have added links File Sizes and MD5 Checksums links that contain all the file sizes in bytes and the results of running the md5 program on the files.

The FTP/Mirror Sites link, which is updated periodically, will take you to other sites that contain some or all of the information given here. Some of these sites do not update very often, so you may want to check back here periodically.

I have included a page on how the packages here were created. This Creating Packages has proven useful to a lot of other system administrators and those who want to distribute software in the pkgadd format.

There are a lot of other sites on the net dealing with Sun/Oracle or Solaris issues. See the Other Useful Sites link.

Many people have helped in this effort. Their enormous contributions are discussed in the Credits. Past Comments/Kudos and information on How You Can Help are also of interest.

On my home page Christensen Home, you will find some comments on special services I can provide.

I hope you get a lot of use out of this site.

Happy computing!

Steve Christensen
