Projects/KDE on Solaris/KDE4 on Solaris10 Status
March 17, 2011 Status
Work on the KDE4.6.0/Solaris 10 project restarted again.
Using Sun Studio 12, not 12.1 or 12.2 (unless necessary)
I have reverted many changes that were done to try and use Solaris 10 tool chain which have some serious issues. I am not opposed to trying to do this with the basic Solaris tools, but both options should be available. KDE4.4.1 worked with all the original FOSS software (gettext/iconv/mit-kerberos5/openldap/cyrus-sasl).
Qt-4.7.2 now builds out of the repo on Solaris10/SS12. Working towards getting the rest of the builds working for KDEgdm-consolidation.
Qt-4.7.2 fails on an internal compiler bug with Solaris 10/SS12.2 so that is a stopper for right now.
One sticky issue has cropped up which has to do with Templates with SS12 and the exiv-0.20. This builds from the repo if using Sun Studio 12.1. I've written in some code to base-exiv2.spec which resets the compiler to sexp (how cbe recognizes SunStudio12.1) to effect a hands-off build.
curl-7.3.21 is being an issue dealing with GSS_DLLIMP variables in /opt/kde4/include/gssapi/gssapi_generic.h. Trying to work around. May revert to an older rev.
