Installing on Solaris

The Generic binary build installation instructions may be used to install RabbitMQ on Solaris, with two modifications.

The RabbitMQ shell scripts assume a standard POSIX environment. On Solaris this requires that startup scripts be executed with the /usr/xpg4/bin/sh shell. This can be accomplished by replacing the first line of each script (which normally reads #!/bin/sh) with #!/usr/xpg4/bin/sh.

The RabbitMQ shell scripts assume the existence of the "readlink" utility for resolving symbolic links. This can be obtained by installing the Sunfreeware "coreutils" package or compiling GNU coreutils.
