Branches: MAIN
CVS tags: HEAD

Add text from Cygnus X-1.  Add dates to now-historical statments.
Adjust language to current usage (illumos is a normal word, and
Solarish does not seem to appear elsewhere).

[[!meta title="How to use pkgsrc on illumos-based disttibutions"]]

This page will cover the requirement to bootstrap pkgsrc on illumos-based distributions.  (illumos is the continuation of OpenSolaris.)
[Prebuilt binaries & a repository of packages is provided by Joyent]( so it is not necessary to go through this process unless by choice.
It is assumed that a copy of the pkgsrc files have been [obtained]( and uncompressed, ready to bootstrap.

See also pkgsrc/bootstrap/README.Solaris; this wiki page should probably be merged into that file.

# illumos gcc versions

In 2022, the default compiler is gcc 7.3.

/opt/gcc/$(GCC_VERSION) on Illumos is usually where the patched
version of the compiler - used to build illumos itself - is located.
This will exists only after installing the illumos build environment
(package 'build-essential' on OI, 'illumos-tools' on OmniOS and
'illumos-build' on Tribblix).  Vanilla GCC instead is normally
installed at /usr/gcc/$(GCC_VERSION) and symlinked to /usr/bin/gcc-*,
with the default alternative being /usr/bin/gcc. Upon installing any
gcc version, it should be already available in $PATH.

# OmniOS

As of 2017, on a freshly installed system the only components needed to bootstrap pkgsrc successfully is GCC, lint, linker object-files and header files.

    # pkg install gcc48 header linker lint object-file header-math

pkgsrc can then be bootstrapped as [normal](

# Tribblix

As of 2017, all that's required is for the `develop` overlay to be installed in order to successfully bootstrap pkgsrc on Tribblix.

    # zap install-overlay develop

# OpenIndiana

As of 2017, on the 151a8 development release of OpenIndiana, the installation of GCC & GNU binutils is required alongside lint, object-files and header files to bootstrap pkgsrc successfully.

    # pkg install illumos-gcc gnu-binutils system/header developer/library/lint object-file header-math
    # PATH=/opt/gcc/4.4.4/bin:/usr/gnu/bin:$PATH pkgsrc/bootstrap/bootstrap

# OpenSXCE

[OpenSXCE has not been updated since 2014.]

As of 2017, comes with all necessary component to bootstrap pkgsrc out of the box, just ensure `PATH` contains the path to GCC & linker `/opt/gcc/4.4.4/bin:/usr/gnu/bin` when performing a system wide install as root. No changes required when performing an [unprivileged bootstrap]( as environment contains necessary settings.
