lx Branded Zone Installation Methods

You can install an lx branded zone by using a tarball, CD-ROM or DVD discs, or an ISO image. If you install from discs or from an ISO image, you can specify Sun package cluster categories. The categories are cumulative. If you do not specify a cluster, the default is desktop.

Table 34-1 Package Cluster Categories

Sun Category
The minimum set of packages needed to construct a zone.
core plus server-oriented packages, such as httpd, mailman, imapd, and spam-assassin.
server plus user-oriented packages, such as evolution, gimp, mozilla, and openoffice.
desktop plus developer packages, such as bison, emacs, gcc, vim-X11, and many library development packages.
Everything on the install media that is known not to interfere with the zone's operation. Certain packages might not function in a Linux zone.

To install configured lx branded zones, see How to Install an lx Branded Zone.
