Dear Sir, I shutdown blastwave years ago when the OpenSolaris project
killed and Oracle lawyers started to lean on community projects :

Blastwave had agreements and contracts with Sun Microsystems and Oracle
made every reasonable non-effort to kill that.

However I do have fully up to date software stack builds on Solaris 10
where everything is 64-bit Sparc and built on a baseline of Niagara T2
class hardware. So really you need to get away from the much older and
most likely very stale blastwave stuff. Either that or I re-open the old
Blastwave site and push out a whole stack of software. The guys over at
OpenCSW ( who lifted everything from Blastwave in 2008 ) have a lot of
updates but I don't know if any of it is 64-bit ready nor how reliable
it is.
