Sun-4 SunOS 4 freeware repositories

Unread postby SAQ » Fri Mar 26, 2010 12:08 pm

Anyone seen any? Nice OS, pretty well known, but little prebuilt software. I guess I can start by building GCC 2.7 with the cc and go on from there, but prebuilt binaries can be so much easier.
Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!

Living proof that you can't keep a blithering idiot down.

Well, I've gcc 3.2.3 on my 3/60 and it came prebuilt, though I can't recall where did it come from.
It turned out that it's pretty straightforward to build recent software with it, at least compared, say, to much newer HP-UX ;)

I also have a small but valueable collection of gnu utils, perl, sudo, pdksh, openssh, even clisp, and probable more, prebuilt or built locally by me.
I guess it's worth to consider to gather a repository as Sun-3 software collection sites tend to die out.

Works great if you're on Solaris 8 or above. Not so good for early Solaris 2 users, and hopeless for SunOS 4.1 users. SunOS 4.1 and earlier are very different from Solaris 2, being BSD based rather than Vr4.
