OpenSolaris 2008.11 Image Packaging System Guide

Package Categories

The package categories are displayed in the left-hand panel of the Package Manager. See the The Package Manager (IPS GUI) for information on the Package Manager.


Note - A package subcategory is displayed only if there are packages available in that subcategory.


If you are using the Command Line Interface (CLI), the category of a package is shown by the package metadata, info.classification.

If you are creating and publishing an IPS package, you might use the info.classification attribute with the publication client, pkgsend(1), to categorize your package before publishing the package. See the Actions in IPS section to learn about actions and their corresponding attributes of a package.

The following tables list the categories and subcategories of packages that are available for classification purposes in the OpenSolaris 2008.11 release.
