Oh thanks for noticing. Yes they should be there.

If they are not one would most probably need to reinstall the os.

I made a script that should be able to do that online :)



beadm create ${IMG_NAME}
beadm mount ${IMG_NAME} ${IMG_MNT}

rm -rf ${IMG_MNT}/*

pkg image-create --full -p
openindiana.org=http://pkg.openindiana.org/hipster/ ${IMG_MNT}

cp -a /var/pkg/pkg5.image ${IMG_MNT}/var/pkg/pkg5.image

pkg -R ${IMG_MNT} install -v $(pkg list -H 'pkg://openindiana.org/*' |
awk '{printf "pkg://openindiana.org/%s ", $1}')

rsync -x -avp /etc/ ${IMG_MNT}/etc

beadm unmount ${IMG_NAME}
beadm activate ${IMG_NAME

If you have something installed under bootenv which is not in it's own
dataset you will need to copy that over too. Or reinstall the svr4
package if there are any.
