Differences between SunOS 4.1 and SunOs 5.1 STREAMS implementations

Differences between SunOS 4.1 and SunOs 5.1 STREAMS implementations

Post by Bruno Desquines STNA 7SU p8069 BD » Sat, 27 Mar 1993 01:50:59


I am trying to port a STREAMS driver from SunOS 4.1.1 to SunO 5.1 (Solaris 2.1).

The dynamic loading works fine, but several problems have appeared when
trying to execute specific (to be used with the I_STR opcode) ioctl's:
when executing those ioctl's, the put procedure is actually called ;
but the message that the driver gets doesn't have M_IOCTL type.

Could anyone give me a few hints as to differences between SunOS 4.1 and SunOS 5.1
STREAMS implementations ?

E-mail answers prefered.

Best regards,

1. SunOS 4.1.x libraries on Solaris 2.x (sunos 5.x)

      I have pre-built third party libraries from sunos 4.1.x. They were
built on that version of the OS.
Now, when I link new programs on sunos 5.x and above, Iam unable to link
these old libs, because the linker complains about the format of these
old libs. Is there a way to make them work on sunos 5.x and above ?
I have no sources for these third party libs.

Second, iam able to build executables on sunos 4.1.x successfully with
these old libs and the the binaries work nicely on sunos 4.1.x, but
crash on sunos 5.x and above. Is there a solution other than getting the
latest version of these libs ?
