what is the name of Com2 please? In SCO it would be /dev/tty2a
or/dev/tty2A. I could not figure out from /dev which entry corresponds to
I have C-Kermit 5A source & a C compiler but the makefile does not appear
to work. I hacked it OK several years ago on SCO to get Kermit working
fine. I find the concept of a make file with all it's flags & settings
too duanting for words.
Any help will be most appreciated.

Be more verbose. I had no problems whatsoever compiling kermit. WhatQuote:>I have C-Kermit 5A source & a C compiler but the makefile does not appear

I'm sorry if I come across as some harsh, uncaring bastard. But, I
really don't wanna read about Windows or UnixWare or TOS or whatever,
and how much better they are than this Solaris stuff, and how come all
this software doesn't magically work, right out of the box. Of course,
if Sun does expect to sell Solaris in a PC environment, and compete with
MS Windows 4.0, they'd better get their act together, especially with
regards to installation and configuration. But, it is my opinion that
Sun never expects to compete with Windows. No, x86 is just a bone
tossed to us software professionals , so that we can play with something
geeky at home without investing in mondo-expensive hardware, in the same
way that Sun-3 equipment was tossed to the educational environment --
with visions of leveraged sales down the road. They can't honestly hope
to make any serious cash off this x86 dead-end path, can they? Oh, well,
if the Power-PC port is made easier by the x86 effort, perhaps they can...
Does anyone know if binaries of the old Xfree86 version 2.1 (not 3.1)
for solaris 2.1 are still available at ftp sites ?
Your reply is greatly appreciated.
