I've installed the OpenIndiana Version 151a8 (with desktop) as a guest VM in my VMware Fusion today. The popular tool lsblk is not there, and the pkg install needs additional info to find it (path? version?).

How can I find out this additional info for the lsblk tool, and generally - for any other additional piece of software I'll need?

Solaris/SunOS had already other tools to achieve similar purpose as lsblk which is specific to Linux.

To simply display block devices:

iostat -En

You can also find extensive information about your system using kstat. For instance:

kstat -c disk 

will give you statistics about disks and filesystems.

As for package repositories they are listed here:
