IPS Repositories

OmniOS takes a layer cake approach to packaging. The core OS contains the packages needed to build the OS, plus a few small frills (more shells, tmux/screen, etc.). Users are encouraged to either create their own package repositories for additional software they want to run (and where they like it to be installed) or use repositories published by other users.

Maintainers of add-on repositories are encouraged to share their work with the community. If you wish to have your repository listed here, please get in touch in the Lobby or via #omnios on Freenode.

Note that ms.omniti.com and perl.omniti.com hold packages built specifically for OmniTI’s own use. While there is nothing secret or astonishing therein, non-OmniTI users may wish to see the template branch which may be used as the basis to build one’s own packages.
