Latest Solaris 2.0 SW list

Latest Solaris 2.0 SW list

Post by Richard Steinberg » Wed, 30 Sep 1992 23:59:20



The latest edition of the Solaris SW list is appended to this message.
I am posting it to a few additional groups today, but it is generally
only posted to comp.unix.solaris.  Please feel free to send comments
and corrections.  Also, please send information to help fill in the gaps.

Solaris 2.x compatibility information.  Here is an attempt to provide
some information about SW that may run under SUN's Solaris 2.x OS.
For now (9/92), feel free to send additional information regarding other
tools that you would like to see included.  If possible, include details
as to whether that product runs under 2.x [include x].  This list is
now available via anonymous FTP from updike.sri.com.
Please send suggestions to: r...@updike.sri.com.

Please use archie or other database to find out where these tools reside.
Most of the GNU programs are on prep.ai.mit.edu.  Many X11 programs
are on export.lcs.mit.edu.  pit-manager.mit.edu is a source for many
other programs.  So is ftp.uu.net.

I will only list a site if a "customized" 2.x-compatible version or
patches exist there.  [I would prefer not to get in the business of
listing distribution sites, as they tend to be very voluable entities.]

Note: Unless otherwise indicated, "builds" means compiles using SUN-supplied
compilers.  

IMPORTANT: If you have built a tool/utility listed here and you needed to
apply one or more patches, PLEASE contact the code's author so that
he/she may examine you efforts and incorporate it into the next release.
This will help everyone.  "HELP SAVE THE WORLD." - Larry Wall.

Status Codes:

1 Current distribution builds under Solaris 2.0
2 Current distribution builds with patches.  [See comments]
  [Most people who claimed that they we able to get XXX to build with
   only a "few" patches have generally been optimistic about others
   ability to do the same.  However this is not necessarily the case.]
3 Current distribution doesn't build yet.
4 Partial build. [See comments]
5 Cygnus distribution includes this.  See vendor/cygnus dir on ftp.uu.net.
6 Binary available.  Binaries have been posted to some sites known
  by archie and other databases.
7 Compiles under 4.x compatibility mode.

Patch distributors:
