Howdy all,

Does anyone know when Solaris 2.6 (sparc) was released?

Apologies if this is in FAQ somewhere...

Cheers Benno

August 1997


  Working for, but definitely not speaking for, Sun Microsystems, Inc.


1. Solaris 2.6 Am I suppose to have libs -ldes & -lcrypt ???

I am trying to build OpenLDAP + OpenSSL + CyrusSASL on Solaris 2.6.

It all builds OK but during the Cyrus build it just gives a ***NOTE ***
about not being able link in routines because I don't have a libdes* and
I don't have a libcrypt*, shared or static.

Hmmm. Doesn't Solaris have these libs?
How important is it to build this without these libs. I take it the
final runtime linking is going to puke since the lib's arent' present.
Isn't any big deal to build this combo so it won't be technically "LDAP
V3 compliant"?


2. ioctl()

3. I am having a problem with sort on a solaris 2.6 box using ksh

4. kernel BUG in page_alloc.c:141!
