Someone asked me if I can port a driver, developped on SunOS 4.1 (i
suppose it's Solaris 1) to Solaris 2.5 (i suppose it means SunOS 5.5).
I've got the full code, which is quit long (around 20 000 lines of C to
be ported). The driver has been developped has a module.
On another forum, someone told me that the main differences between
SunOSes is that SunOS 4 = BSD, and SunOS 5 : Sys V. If we want to do the
porting, we will have a well defined time frame, so I prefer think twice
before saying OK.
My question is : who has already done this (porting a module from sunos
4 to sunos 5) ? Was it tough ? Knowing that the code is heavily
commented, that the machine will be the same (same bus, same cpu, ....
it's just the OS that will be changed), what kind of surprise may I
Can someone give me any clue/hints/comments ?
