Try this:
# wget http://www.opencsw.org/pkg_get.pkg

If it fails... you probably have firewall or proxy issues....

Then try this:

How to use my proxy when downloading?
You should set this personally in ~/.wgetrc or globally in /etc/wgetrc (or /etc/opt/csw/wgetrc if you're using wget from OpenCSW).

You can also set it in pkgutil.conf by using the wgetopts option.

wgetopts=--execute http_proxy=http://proxy.foo.com

I am having the same problem as Richard was:


My questions are:

  *   How do I add a now post to an existing thread? I am new to this forum and I don't know how to use it. Ideally, I would have responded to Dagobert instead of creating a new thread.
  *   What is the resolution to this issue? I am using a vanilla install of Solaris 11.2. I don't know my pkgadd patchlevel, or even how to find it out.
  *   Assuming the issue doesn't get resolved, how I download packages manually? I don't have a second Solaris machine with a working pkg-add, as recommended on the setup guide. Can't I just download packages individually to /var/spool/pkg and run pkgadd?
