Packaged Transforms

As a convenience to developers, a set of the transforms that were used when packaging the Oracle Solaris OS are available in the following files in /usr/share/pkg/transforms:


Sets facet.devel on *.h header files delivered to /usr/.*/include, archive and lint libraries, pkg-config(1) data files, and autoconf(1) macros.


Sets a variety of facet.doc.* facets on documentation files.


Sets a variety of facet.locale.* facets on files that are locale-specific.


Adds a restart_fmri actuator that points to the svc:/system/manifest-import:default on any packaged SMF manifests so that the system will import that manifest after the package is installed.
