The packages you installed include everything but the compiler. (You
have the headers, make, as, ar, ...)
There are 3 choices:
1. Download the binary packages you want from the web.
2. Download gcc from the above and compile the packages
(perhaps including gcc) you want the source.
3. Buy a compiler. Sun's new compiler is on Early Access so you
can try it for free. (They gave me a 4 month license.)
I haven't had the Solaris package long, and I guess, like all operating
systems, it has its little quirks. I have found it very easy to set-up and
configure, and the CDE is nice ( kind of reminds me of KDE ). I only wish
it had come with a little more documentation. I bought one book, "Solaris
System Administrator's Guide" by J. Winsor, but found it rather basic. If
anyone could recommend a book with a little more depth, especially in the
networking/ppp area, I would appreciate it.
Thanks again to those who replied.
Does anybody know what the directory layout of the openbsd cdrom needs
to be in order for the installer program to work with it? I want to
make an install cd by downloading the distribution from an ftp mirror so
I can install it on a computer without a network connection, but I'm not
sure what needs to be copied onto the cd. Has anyone had any success
