BSD Mac Solaris Linux



A tool for building Solaris 11/OpenIndiana IPS packages from RPM-like spec files.
It is know to run as well on OmniOS.
It can create as well packages for Solaris 10 SVr4.

For a few hundred build-recipes see the sub-project "spec-files-extra" or "SFE". We already have stacks of e.g. multimedia players mplyer/vlc or postfix/dovecot/cyrus-sasl/spamfiltering.
But there is so much more to be added! Volunteers to the build-recipes are always welcome.
Please ask on the mailing list or irc://

Please proceed now with the link below and remember to visit "SFE" on the left and browse through the available packages list in SVN. Or go for one of the binary repositories with ready-to-use IPS packages.

pkgbuild Web Site


  • Used to build packages whose specs are in the Spec Files Extra repository
  • Also used to build portions of the Solaris and OpenIndiana operating systems
  • There are binary repositories out there, so you simply can install packages with "pfexec pkg install postfix"
  • The build-recipes support Solaris 11+, OpenIndiana, OmniOS (early)
