Blastwave is a collective effort to create a set of binary packages of free software, that can be automatically
installed to a Solaris computer (sparc or x86 based) over the network. Blastwave has a substantial build server
farm for the use of the software developers and maintainers in the Solaris community. All software is built and
tested in a standardized build environment using Sun ONE Studio 8, Sun ONE Studio 10, Studio 11 tools as
well as GCC.

 


There are currently 1883 software packages in standard SVR4 package format
ready to use and easily installed.
