OmniOS takes a layered approach to packaging. In addition to the fairly minimal software delivered as the core OS, additional packages are provided through extra repositories. There is an extra repository managed by the OmniOS Association, and several managed by third parties.

The table below shows URLs for the latest stable release. Substitute the version number for the release you are running.
There are is also a US mirror for the core OmniOS packages, kindly hosted by
Joyent. To add this mirror to the publisher
configuration use the
-m option to
set-publisher as shown below, replacing
r151038 with the release you are running:
# pkg set-publisher -m https://us-east.mirror.omnios.org/r151038/core/ omnios

Note that you as a user of these extra repositories are encouraged to get in touch with the maintainers of these repos. In many cases you can contribute and help by writing documentation, sending in build instructions for new software or simply testing packages and sending in results. If you need more packages then you should ask for them.
Maintainers of add-on repositories are encouraged to share their work with the community. If you wish to have your repository listed here, please get in touch.
