GRAMPS 3.0.1 has been succesfully installed on both Solaris SPARC and X86 platforms by building from source, no known packages exist for installation. The latest release of the OpenSolaris X86 is available here.

  • Install dependencies. Even with the latest releases of Open Solaris a number of missing dependencies need to be resolved before you can install GRAMPS Berkeley DB, Python BSDDB Interface, Python ReportLab. You will need to install these dependencies.


  • Configure GRAMPS. All you need to do is run the configure script:
  ./configure

If you have built Gnome or Python with iconv libraries other than what Solaris comes with (the GNU version for example), you can specify to GRAMPS where to find them:

  ICONV=/dir/to/iconv ./configure

Other options to configure that are useful include telling it to setup GRAMPS to install in a directory of your choosing instead of the default:

  ./configure --prefix=/your/dest/dir
  • make and install
  make
  make install
