Can standard *deb files be installed in a nexenta install...?


AFAIK Nexenta is based on Ubuntu Hardy...

Based on OpenSolaris build 134+ backports/fixes from later releases.
ZFS deduplication support.
Crossbow support
Over 13000 packages in the repository.
Based on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Hardy Heron) repository
This includes latest dpkg/apt, gcc, binutils, coreutils, perl, python, ruby, Qt libs, GTK libs, etc
SMF support added fo server applications like apache, mysql, postgresql, exim4, etc.
100% native Debian environment, easy to upgrade, easy to use
Includes Vim and screen by default
Includes apt-clone which brings zfs power to apt-get.

So... I have the full repo of Ubuntu 8.04, can i add it to the package manager of nexentaCore install...?

Does this handle regular debs...?

I doubt that will work since the *.debs in those repositories are built for either x86 or amd64 linux kernels and Nexenta is built on the solaris kernel. Now, you can probably download the source package debs and then compile it on Nexenta. But I'd be surprised if you could install the standard debs.
