If you are on a sunray where hg is not installed, these tips may help you...

Note: you do not have to be root to do any of this... which is way better than trying to pkgadd this stuff.

  1. download the mercurial-0.9.5.tar.gz file from http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/release/?M=D
  2. gunzip and untar file.
 this produces a directory mercurial-0.9.5
  1. read through http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/index.cgi/UnixInstall. Pay speciall attention to the Per-user installation section.
  2. make sure you have a viable version of pyhton.
 on the sunray that I was using, I had /usr/bin/python, which was version 2.4.4... all good.
  1. You need a make. I found gmake in /usr/sfw/bin
  2. You need a cc. I found a working gcc in /usr/sfw/bin.
  3. set the environment variable CC to point at the cc that you found in the previous step.
  4. cd into the mercurial-0.9.5 directory.
  5. `gmake install-home`
  6. clone away.
