Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris The Linux desktop has come a long way. It's a fully usable, stable, and secure operating system that can be used quite easily by the masses. Not too long ago, Sun figured they could do the same by starting Project Indiana, which is supposed to deliver a complete distribution of OpenSolaris in a manner similar to GNU/Linux. After using the latest version for a while, I'm wondering: why?

Just two quick notes:
- crle is deprecated, prefered way to configure locations of libraries is LD_LIBRARY_PATH,
- you can get binary packages of nagions and openldap for (Open)Solaris from blastwave.

Since when was crle deprecated? It is my understanding that using LD_LIBRARY_PATH is bad for security reasons.

Yes I can get Nagios and OpenLDAP from a number of places, I compile applications with particular options that most repositories do not. The version of Nagios on Blastwave is 2.10, the last version I compiled successfully was 3.06. And OpenLDAP has been a pain in rear forever.

Don't know since when, but I remember reading it somewhere in Sun's docs. What is the problem with LD_LIBRARY_PATH? I hear (read) this for the first time.
