Installing the 5.1a package is the pkgsrc version. I have bought 5.2,
and have the cdrom, and would like to install that.
Is that possible yet ? Especially siunce I can't find the 5.1a package
on the SUN website anymore..
Thanks for your reply

Ugh... i think that's a problem.
We can't mirror SO for licensing reasons iirc.
Please post to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask what the right thing to do is
