Solaris n00b here, so please don't tut too hard
I do have a lot of experience building software packages, but not without a C compiler, make util etc...
I'm a bit confused here - I'd like to install GNU etc al software on my Solaris 7 based Ultra 5 but I can't seem to find a sensible place to source it.
I tried sunfreeware but that appears to be commercial only now.
I tried tgcware but there were no instructions about how to install the packages (which are built for Solaris 2.6) in http://jupiterrise.com/tgcware/sunos5.6_sparc/stable/
- certainly pkgadd wasn't interested.
Could anyone enlighten me please? Solaris 7 was pre-installed so I don't have access to the Solaris CC compiler.
I believe there might have been a companion CD containing enough GNU software to start building OSS applications but I don't have that as no media was supplied with the box.
I also believe that the NetBSD pkgsrc system supports Solaris http://www.netbsd.org/docs/software/pac ... #platforms
but again I believe I need at least the core GNU utils and compiler, make, autoconf etc. to get started.
