Packages

Package management on OpenIndiana relies on pkg(5), the Image Packaging System (IPS).


OpenIndiana repositories

Packages are delivered by one main publisher named ‘openindiana.org’ together with one additional publisher ‘encumbered’ for multimedia codecs and other components which may be subject to software patents.
