Git or PKGutil

i am running solaris 10 and they want GIt on there.

The instructions that I found on line want me to use pkgutil which i don't have either.

Most packages that i have installed come from the cd and are labeled SUNW...

I see one instruction to add
pkgadd -d http://get.opencsw.org/now

/opt/csw/bin/pkgutil -U

however i get an error on the first command, I am sure that I am blocked from reaching that site.

Can anyone explain how I can get this package into /var/spool/pkg so the I can add it to my system?

I doubt anyone letting open access like that to outer space from a indoor lan... sure you must have firewalls etc...

Well most of us download stuff on their PC first then from there copy to the servers...

You never really mentioned what error you get when you try to install the package...

pkgadd: ERROR: attempt to process datastream failed

am playing with perms now to see if that may be the issue.

.root > cd /var/spool/pkg
