way of finding out the actual package names that one needs to install.

I hope my writeup (below) helps.

OpenIndiana, a distro based on Illumos - roughly Solaris 11 compatible.


Getting started doc: http://docs.openindiana.org/handbook/getting-started/

Disk size: 16 GB
RAM size: 3 GB (with just 1.5 GB 'pkg install' runs out of RAM, with just 2 GB 
it hangs)
