I'd forget about compiling Mozilla; it's a monster to compile!  :-)
Better download the "Nightly Builds" binary. The Solaris
version should work on Solaris 2.6 and up (Sparc).

Actually, they also have Solaris_x86 binaries.

I don't think it works on Solaris 2.6. Mozilla 1.x needs the POSIX.1b
Realtime Extensions library (man {librt|libposix4} ) and it is not
installed under 2.6 as far as I know.

The _binary package_ probably needs it, because it's compiled on
Solaris 7. Mozilla itself doesn't. My custom build, compiled on 2.6
with the latest Sun compilers, runs fine on Solaris 2.6, 7 and 8
(9 not tested, but likely to work). I can distribute it if there's
interest.

1. mozilla.org's "phoenix" v0.5 Solaris 2.7+/SPARC binaries available ...

Hi!

----

I've created a binary distribution of mozilla.org's "phoenix" [1]
milestone 0.5 for Solaris >= 2.7 SPARC, see
http://puck.informatik.med.uni-giessen.de/download/phoenix-0.5-sparc-...
[2]

Comments:
- "libgdk-1.2.so.0", "libgtk-1.2.so.0", "libglib-1.2.so.0" and
"libgmodule-1.2.so.0" are required to use the binaries
- Make sure you have the Recommended&Security patches applied for your
OS (at least the libC.so patch, otherwise Mozilla/Phoenix won't start)
- Solaris 2.7 users on non-UltraSPARC systems (e.g. "SPARCstation 5"
etc.) may run into libC bug "4708982 Patched version of libCstd.so.1 is
compiled for sparcv8plus" which results in the problem that
Mozilla/Phoenix cannot start
- Printing is supported via Xprint (see
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/xprint/ ,
http://www.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla1.3a/#xprint etc.)
- Support for CTL(=Complex Text Layout, e.g. support for
Thai/Hindi/Tamil etc.) is compiled in, but you still need the matching
fonts ("*-sun.unicode.india-0" etc.)
- Phoenix does not use Mozilla/Netscape's profile data, it stores them
sepeately under ~/.phoenix (e.g. it is safe to use Mozilla and Phoenix
at the same time without risking profile corruption :)

[1]="phoenix" is a lightweight, browser-only version of Mozilla, see
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/phoenix/
[2]=(mozilla.org will mirror it later under
http://komodo.mozilla.org/pub/phoenix/releases/0.5/)

----

Bye,
Roland
