librsvg pkg-config problem

Using pkg-config to get the libs for librsvg works:

  ~# /opt/csw/bin/pkg-config --libs librsvg-2.0
  -L/opt/csw/lib -lrsvg-2 -lm -lgio-2.0 -lgdk_pixbuf-2.0 -lcairo
-lgobject-2.0 -lglib-2.0 -lintl

However trying to get the cflags gives an error:

  ~# /opt/csw/bin/pkg-config --cflags librsvg-2.0
  sh: gnome-config: not found
  Package xproto was not found in the pkg-config search path.
  Perhaps you should add the directory containing `xproto.pc' to the
PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
  Package 'xproto', required by 'Xrender', not found

Is there an easy solution to this?

glib-2.41.0.tar.xz : how to extract

Hi guys,


Probably a silly question

How do I go about extracting files from glib-2.41.0.tar.xz?

Running on solaris 10



Many thanks in advance,



Jim Zapsalis

Connection rest by peer when running pkgutil -U

Can anyone help troubleshoot the following error I am getting when running pkgutil -U?



  (try:20) => `/var/opt/csw/pkgutil/catalog.mirror.opencsw.org_opencsw_testing_sparc_5.10.tmp'

Connecting to[]:80... connected.

HTTP request sent, awaiting response...

Read error (Connection reset by peer) in headers.

Giving up.


I can access the mirror and view contents from a Web browser so I don't believe it is firewall related, nor to my knowledge, should this site be blocked. I am also unable to do a curl on the address from a Linux host.

issue with ap24_modphp5

Hi people:
Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask/tell this problem.
I'm using Solaris 10 (x86 version) and need to install the php module 
for the apache webserver.
But when issued the commands:

  /opt/csw/bin/pkgutil -U
  => Fetching new catalog and descriptions 
( if available ...
==> 3801 packages loaded from 

[Host:web02 Zone:global]
[Time:10:16 User:root]# /opt/csw/bin/pkgutil -y -i ap24_modphp5
Solving needed dependencies ...
Package ap24_modphp5 not in catalog. Exiting.

I'm doing something wrong ??

Thanks a lot!

ClamAv & Icap & ZFS

Hi All,

I guess that this is for Juraj Lutter & Peter Bonivart, but if anyone
else can tell me, then all to the good.

I've got clamav (& freshclam) downloaded & working. However I'd like to
be able to have clamv with ZFS (install the virus-scan package, enable
the virus scan service, and set the vscan property of the filesystem).

Apparently to do this I need to have p_icap running. However, the
version on OpenCSW is 0.1.7 and is from 2012.06.02. This is several
versions out of date. The latest is 0.4.2 from 2015.08.28.

Are there any plans to get the latest version available?


Ian Prideaux | 10 Dec 12:51 2015

Website Bug

Hi All,

I've just tried to send a message to the maintainer of the clamav
package, using the contact form on the website:

However, when I click the submit button it says "The value entered in
the captcha field is not valid".

There is no captch on the web form.
Xubuntu 15.10, Firefox 42.0, if it helps.

Is there an archive of the old Solaris 8 Repository?

This is probably an old question, but I could not find a reference in the faqs.  I have been spot checking the archives,  but have not found anything.


Occasionally I have to rebuild a Solaris 8 machine.  As the Solaris 8 repository has faded away, I am wondering if there is an archived copy somewhere that I could download and have a local repository for when I need to rebuild an old machine.  Does anyone know of such an archive?

MySQL issues on Solaris 11/sparc

Hello all,

Dagobert has pointed out that the MySQL packages don't work on Solaris 
11/sparc, failing with this error:

151104  9:56:09 [Note] /opt/csw/libexec/mysqld (mysqld 5.5.46) starting 
as process 19236 ...
151104  9:56:09 [ERROR] Initialization of transaction delegates failed. 
Please report a bug.
151104  9:56:09 [ERROR] Aborting

This seems to be a known bug about which Oracle does not give much of a 
shit, since they provide a magical «fix», but no solution.!topic/dimstat/596RKYcVPIQ!topic/dimstat/GiewfGElRZk

The workaround is to use the MySQL 5.6 package in 64 mode. Edit or 
create /etc/opt/csw/csw.conf after installing it, and add this line:


I'll make it use 64 bit as default instead of the historical 32 with the 
5.6.27 update coming soon.

MySQL 5.5 32 bit, MySQL 5.5 64 bit, MySQL 5.6 32 bit, all have the same 
issue on Solaris 11/sparc exclusively.

I will not investigate further. If somebody wants to, you're welcome to it.

64-bit PyQt

I have been able to install and run PyQt and related packages on Solaris 10 without any problem. What I need to do is to import the PyQt binding through 64-bit Python 3.1 which is part of a commercial product. From the best I can tell, there are no 64-bit packages for either QT4 or PyQt in the opencsw repository. Does anyone have an hint of how to compile this stuff with the 64 bit flag? Downloading the standard sources and manually configuring and compiling appears to be a huge ordeal.
