Packaging facility OpenPKG 2.3 released

Ralf S. Engelschall writes “The OpenPKG project released
version 2.3
of their unique RPM-based cross-platform multi-instance
Unix software packaging facility. OpenPKG 2.3 consists of 545 selected
(from a pool of over 850) packages which include latest versions of
popular Unix software like Apache, Bash, BIND, GCC, INN, Mozilla, MySQL,
OpenSSH, Perl, Postfix, PostgreSQL, Samba, Squid, teTeX and Vim. All
software is carefully packaged for easy deployment on 21 different Unix
platforms, including FreeBSD 4.11/5.3/6.0, NetBSD 2.0, Debian GNU/Linux
3.0/3.1, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, Fedora Core 3, SuSE Linux 9.2,
SuSE Enterprise Linux 9, Mandrake Linux 10.1, Apple MacOS X 10.3, HP
HP-UX 11.11 and Sun Solaris 8/9/10. The major technical efforts for
this release were spent on the porting of all packages to the now
officially supported Unix platform Sun Solaris 10 on both Intel and
SPARC architectures.”
