Build of emacs-19.22 fails on Solaris 2.3

Build of emacs-19.22 fails on Solaris 2.3

Post by Chris Shent » Sat, 12 Feb 1994 10:39:11

I just downloaded emacs-19.22 and am trying to build it on a Solaris
2.3 system. The Sun C compiler generates lots of warnings about stuff
being too small in a bunch of X bitmap file includes, and then fails
to load because it can't find some library.

The calls it can't resolve look like they're part of a termcap/curses
library: stuff like tput() which the 2.3 man pages say are `obsolete'
or some such.

This is my first brush with Solaris, so I'm not sure whether the
system was improperly installed, or I'm missing some -l flag, or

And unfortunately, the system in question is rather inaccessible and
not on the net yet, so I can't give any more accurate diagnostics at
this time.

Is the Solaris 2.3 C compiler junk? I think I know the answer to this
one, but: Should I dump it and get GNU CC?

1. Installing emacs-19.22 on solaris 2.5


I am trying to compile emacs-19.22 on my Sparc20 running Solaris 2.5.
I am getting this error: /src/apps/emacs-19.22/src/temacs: fatal: can't open
file: errno=2 Killed *** Error code 137 (ignored)
./temacs -batch -l loadup dump ./temacs: fatal:
can't open file: errno=2 ***
Signal 9 make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `emacs'
Current working directory /src/apps/emacs-19.22/src ***
Error code 1 make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `src'

The install docs say that there will be a problem with 'temacs -batch -l loadup
dump' if you have insufficient swap space, but I have 64M RAM and 128 M
swap.  Shouldn't that be sufficient?  Also, is fine, location
and permission-wise.

Any clues would be appreciated...
