GRAMPS 3.0.1 has been successfully 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 @ opensolaris.org.

Install dependencies

Even with the latest releases of OpenSolaris a number of missing dependencies need to be resolved before you can install GRAMPS, namely Berkeley DB, Python BSDDB Interface and Python ReportLab.

You will need to install these dependencies before you can move forward and install GRAMPS.

Installing Berkeley DB
  • Download the latest BSDDB core from www.oracle.com.
  • Unpack, build and install
% gtar zxfB db-4.7.25.tar.gz
% cd db-4.7.25/build_unix
% ../dist/configure --prefix=/usr
% gmake
% su
# gmake install

Note: Using the --prefix=/usr on the configure command-line is a must under Solaris, without installing the Berkeley DB in this location Python BSDDB interface fails to install.

Installing Python BSDDB Interface
  • Download bsddb3-4.7.0.tar.gz (version at the time of writing), from pybsddb.sourceforce.net
  • Unpack, build and install
% gtar zxfB bsddb3-4.7.0.tar.gz
% cd bsddb3-4.7.0
% python setup.py build
Found Berkeley DB 4.7 installation.
  include files in /usr/include
  library files in /usr/lib
  library name is libdb-4.7
  running build
  running build_py
  running build_ext

% su
# python setup.py install


Installing GRAMPS

  • 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
