GCC 3.2 install problem

Hi,
I have two problems that I think are related somehow. I am running Solaris 8 on
a E250.
I am trying to install the latest OpenSSH from sunfreeware, but am having
problems getting GCC to work with the 'configure' script.
I have installed GCC 3.2 into the default directory /usr/local/bin.  I then did
the following:

PATH=$PATH: /usr/local/bin:/usr/ccs/bin

export PATH

to check:

echo $PATH

I see /usr/local/bin and /usr/ccs/bin have been added correctly.

At this point my first problem is, if I logout and back in again, the added
'/usr/local/bin has disapeared...why is that?
How can I make sure my PATH modifications are permanent.

continuing with the install of Open SSH........
So I switch to the OpenSSH directiory, and run  ./configure. At this point I rcv
the following error:

#checking for gcc...gcc
  checking for C compiler default output
  configure:error:C compiler cannot create executables

To be able to have usernames appear in programs such as ps, passwd needs to
be world readable.

Re: GCC 3.2 install problem

Sounds like you need to set your PATH in /etc/profile

As for the OpenSSH compile prob, you might want to read
thru config.log in the openssh directory. That should
shed more light on the problem...

RE: passwd file (need to be world readable)

I thought that at first but I tested on my Sol 2.6 box and permissions of
440 or 400 made no difference to "ps" or "ls".

Linux filesystem question

OK, I apologize in advance for a Linux question here, but this crew is the 
most knowledgeable I know.

I was trying to find some files that I knew existed yesterday, but they 
were missing this morning. The directories were there, but not a file to be 
found in the whole tree. The fs is "/".

I tried a fsck and got a screenfull of sda1 write errors. I tried a 
shutdown and got same. Rebooted. Lilo/kernel runs through the boot until it 
tries to mount the root filesystem. It does manage to load the ext3 module, 
finds the disks, mounts /proc.

Fails with this:

creating root device
mounting root device
mounting root filesystem
VFS: Cant find ext3 filesystem on dev sd(8,17)
mount: error 22 mounting ext3
pivotroot: pivot_root(/sysroot,/sysroot/initrd) failed: 2
Freeing unused kernel memory: 304k freed
Kernel panic: no init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.

Questions:
Might this disk and its data recoverable?

If not, is there a chance that if I replace it I can mount is as another 
device (sdcX) and recover data.

Last resort question, If I install a new disk and reload linux (redhat 7.3)

PCI card not getting detected in Ultra SPARC IIi

Hi All,

We have a custom PCI card which is getting detected in Intel architectures
with windows, linux operating systems but is not getting detected in Ultra
SPARC IIi,440MHz running solaris.
It is not being listed even in Openboot when we used show-devs command.

Can anyone please tell where the problem lies :
1. Is there any specific thing that is to be taken into consideration
regarding the architectures(Intel,SPARC) while designing the PCI card.
or
2. Is there any problem with the open boot.
or
3. any thing other than these.

Thanking you all in advance.

Regards,
Yamini

FS: sonicWALL PRO enterprise firewall/VPN

I've got a SonicWALL Pro corporate firewall/VPN "appliance" for trade.

I've got screenshots showing all installed features, status screens,
the user manual, etc, up at:

http://www.mrbill.net/sonicwall

Its a 1U rackmount.

I obtained this unit in a trade a couple of days ago, and after completely
upgrading it (latest firmware, license codes, etc) have realized its way
overkill for my home LAN.  Its got unlimited LAN node and unlimited VPN 
client licenses, for example, which I have no need for here at home with 
< 10 machines.

Would like to trade for other networking or computer equpiment (Cisco PIX,
a 700Mhz-or-better PC system, a G4/400 or better Power Mac, etc).  All
offers considered - I'd just like to exchange this for something that I
*can* use, since its such a waste on my home DSL connection.

Email me if interested.

Bill

Yamini,

  There's a simple answer to this one.  The PCI card is not supported under
Sun's OpenBoot.  The card may be supported under Solaris, but OpenBoot cannot
recognize this.  I had this problem when I tried to use an Adaptec 2940UW card
in a Ultra 60.  I had to go and get the fully supported equivalent card from
Antares (which actually cost LESS than the Adaptec card).  There's nothing
wrong with your OpenBoot and yes, the vendor has to make a card that can be
