wabi

Unread postby mia » Wed Oct 05, 2016 8:34 pm

Does anyone has a copy of Wabi for Solaris/sparc (not x86, but I'd take it too); along with its latest upgrade (2.2E?).
Yes, I understand this is copyrighted software, but I perfectly remember that Sun Microsystems gave it away for free on a companion cd (which I have misplaced). I know it runs on Solaris 7 (and older), but if anyone remembers if it would also run on Solaris 8; let me know as well.

It was included on a CD (along with add-ons like CDE), but back then you still had to buy Solaris to get it - I don't think it was downloadable. If you track down a Solaris 2.5.1 Desktop Media Kit there should be a Desktop 1.1 CD (704-5275-10 Rev A May 1996) with Wabi 2.2 for Solaris on X86, SPARC and PowerPC. There is an earlier revision of the Desktop CD that probably has an older version of Wabi, so make sure it is the 1.1 CD.
Solaris 2.4 included a Wabi 2.0 or 2.1 pack (i.e. Wabi packaged by itself, not as part of a collection of add-ons).

SunPC (or SunPCi depending on what hardware you have) might be a better option - hardware X86 emulation, whereas WABI was a very early binary translation product.

RealPC/SoftWindows is another software-only option (final version was 4.11).
