We have been using OpenIndiana Illumos for our Advanced OS course. I faced a bit of difficulty installing essentials on it, hence this blog post to keep track of what I did to fix it.

$ sudo pkg uninstall entire

$ sudo pkg update -v

$ pkg set-publisher -O http://pkg.openindiana.org/hipster-2015 --search-first openindiana.org

$ sudo pkg install build-essential

Helped me, hope it helps someone!
