User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 Build Identifier: Mozilla 1.4 release code. I am compiling Mozilla 1.4 ( released version ) on Solaris 8, using Sun's Studio 8 compiler suite. The Studio 8 suite replaces the Sun Forte 6.X workshop suite. During the configure process I receive the following configure: error: Forte version WS6U2 or higher is required to build. Your compi ler version is Sun C 5.5 2003/03/12 . Doing a cc -V for the old Workshop 6.2 install we have I get: lendev% /opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc -V cc: Sun WorkShop 6 update 2 C 5.3 Patch 111679-05 2002/02/07 usage: cc [ options] files. Use 'cc -flags' for details Note that 5.3 is the "verison" of the C compiler. Doing the same for the Studio 8 install I get: lendev% /opt/bin/cc -V cc: Sun C 5.5 2003/03/12 usage: cc [ options] files. Use 'cc -flags' for details The version is 5.5. So it looks like the configure script is keying in on the 6, of the Workshop/Forte version and not the C compiler version. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Run configure and specify the Studio 8 C compiler 2. 3. Actual Results: Configure goes through and then generate the error: configure: error: Forte version WS6U2 or higher is required to build. Your compi ler version is Sun C 5.5 2003/03/12 . Expected Results: Expected result would have been to go on through and accepted the Sun Studio 8 C compiler.
This was fixed after mozilla 1.4 was released. You need to apply the patch from bug 177486. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 177486 ***
