Legacy Consolidations

OpenIndiana was originally built from a set of "consolidations" defined as collections of software grouped together.

Primary consolidations listed below have mostly been migrated to oi-userland.

Consolidation

Name

Description

pkg

Image Packaging System

Package management, creation, and publishing software

illumos

illumos

Kernel and core userland

SFW

Solaris Freeware

Bundled open source software

XNV

X Window System

X servers, libraries, and utilities

JDS

Desktop (Java Desktop System)

GNOME and desktop software

Caiman

Slim Install

Installers and live media tools

g11n

Globalization

Internationalisation software

VPanels

Visual Panels

Server management GUIs

Each consolidation was built differently, with different requirements and procedures, which required teams and more resources.

The migration of consolidations to the unified build system is almost completed: remaining packages are listed on the migration status page.

    If GNOME (desktop) is the sole purpose of JDS, why should we build it from the scratch rather than using it from pkgsrc?

    Note: I'm just a naive Unix user, any advice/explanation on this is welcome (smile)
