gcc install on Solaris
Posted on 1998-01-19
This is probably an FAQ, but I haven't had any luck finding an answer yet that works.
On a brand-new UltraSparc workstation with Solaris 2.6, how can I install the latest gcc )and whatever libraries it wants), given that Sun doesn't supply any sort of C compiler?
I tried copying over a working gcc 2.7.something from a Sparc 2, but it seems that a lot of required libraries and include files are missing, wrong version, wrong path, etc. I suspect that some of the path info is hardwired into the installed version I tried to copy, so I don't know how to proceed from here.
All ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
