SunOS 5.10: Quick Notes


Where are programs like make, gcc, python, etc?

They are all under /usr/ccs/bin and /usr/sfw/bin.

Utilities like whoami are under /usr/ucb

You should set them in your PATH.


Setting up the default gateway under SunOS

Run route add default x.x.x.x and also add the IP to the /etc/defaultrouter file such that it will survive a reboot

This is analogous to route add default gw x.x.x.x under linux.


Extracting a .tar.gz archive

Run gzip -dc File.tar.gz | tar xf - to extract File.tar.gz

This is analogous to tar -xzf File.tar.gz under linux.
