In general, to install freeware/shareware packages on SunOs 5.5, what
do I need? It sounds like often one needs the source. Which means one
needs a compiler. 4 of our machines were removed from a network which
came with licenses, and the network people "restored" them to
the "original" OS, but that apparently included very little (meaning,
the minimum SunOs distribution, no "optional" packages). What I'm
worried about: that gcc will need a compiler, too ... and the only
compiler on these machines right now is cc, which someone said isn't
(I'd really like CDE (ie dtwm), but that's not free. And mwm (Motif)
ain't free either, is it? So I think I'll go with fvwm.)
Oh...one other thing...is xv very stable on Solaris? On our Solaris 7
box, it misbehaves. But it ran OK off that box on a SunOs 5.5 box
running CDE. Maybe it's 'cuz we're using an outdated version?
