There's more stuff on my x86 pages
I think solaris/sparc is fairly well documented already. It's the bizzare
quirkiness of the x86 hardware that has the greatest need of help.
In fact, almost all of the stuff I had here, turns out to be portable to both
versions! So, sparc users will mostly be interested in my
misc hints page
But here's just a few sparc-specific hints.
A script to print out your memory configuration
(written in 2001 - I think there's a perl script on the net
that is more complete now)
- Hints and tips on WANBoot,
which is unfortunately sparc only, even though in my opinion it should
be made cross-platform. C'mon sun, standardize!
- Details on how to install Corel word perfect under
Wabi (wow this is old! :-)
- solaris 10 binaries for gcc7.3, c and c++ only:
This extracts under /usr/local/gcc7. Note that you will probably have to add -R to your link lines for g++, such as
- solaris 11 binaries for gcc7.3, c and c++ only:
Similar to above, but for Solaris 11. For now, installs to /usr/local/gccgo (sorry)
Random bonus: there doesnt seem to be a
binary distribution for version 2.6.4.
So.. here's one:
Please note that you have to do a little setup for it. You can install
it anywhere, as long as you do these steps.
gtar zxf fpc-2.6.4.sparc-solaris.tar.gz -C $DEST
bash $DEST/lib/fpc/2.6.4/samplecfg $DEST/lib/fpc/2.6.4 $DEST/etc
The binaries are for Solaris 10 sparc. You will need to have SUNWbinutils
installed, and /usr/sfw/bin in your PATH.
