With great difficulty ;) We build in Sydney on Sol 9 and Manchester on Sparc 8 - though we may no longer bother with Sol 8 for 2.5.04. Sol 9 is build with gcc 3.4.2. CVSNT is very fussy about the compiler version. All gcc compilers from sunfreeware seem to be configured to use /usr/ccs/bin, ie: # gcc -v Reading specs from /usr/local/lib/gcc/sparc-sun-solaris2.9/3.4.2/specs Configured with: ../configure --with-as=/usr/ccs/bin/as --with-ld=/usr/ccs/bin/ld --disable-nls Thread model: posix gcc version 3.4.2 # On the commercial side we are more than happy to build a Solaris 10 Intel version for a modest fee once you have a Pro L2 or higher support contract. I see that Brian has a single user Suite license, but that is specifically for windows/mac/linux. Once a customer pays for a port then we continue to maintain that port for open source and commercial customers. Contact Glen if you need a quote. On the open source side - ports are done by people like you volunteering time and effort and your own hardware. Regards, Arthur Barrett
