thank you for the good responses. Since i know that there are many I can approach this, I believe for know, for the sake of learning etc.. I believe what I want to accomplish is a seperate /usr/local/ and add necessary apps/binaries as needed.
one last thing, is there a way of using some of the global stuff such as 'gcc', even if it is in the /usr/local/* location even though in my inital statement I said i want a spereate /usr/local/*. The only reason I ask is stuff like 'gcc' is something used vasely, and I do not whant to re-invent the wheel and have to recompile it and waste additional space if it is not necessary. I'm sure i'm just trying to wish for something I not reasonable. Thanks again for the great advise -David This message posted from opensolaris.org _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org
