I haven't seen Solaris since about 2005, so I am sure someone will
correct me if I am mistaken.
You'll need to install Dirvish by hand, which is as I recall pretty
easy. You'll need to install a couple of dependencies, too, using
Perl's CPAN. (From the package HOWTO file)
# perl -mCPAN -e install [module]
Possibly POSIX Perl module if Solaris 10 doesn't have that.
You'll probably want to run
# perl -v && rsync --version
Although if you want this to be a Dirvish client, you just need rsync on
the Solaris box and you're done I believe.
Was this going to be a client or a server?
I'd make sure you've got OpenSSH installed on the Solaris 10 box. (I
remember building it by hand on 8.)
