Request for Solaris 7 64-bit builds

This is an enhancement request which should improve Mozilla's quality...

Why ?

Building a 64-bit executable on Solaris 7 show up many problems caused by
different problems.
(Recently I ported a software package to Solaris 7 64-bit. It was hard and very
problematic, but after all the package was much more stable than before: during
cleanup for 64-bit many issues were killed...)

Whould be nice if someone takes the time to make Mozilla 64-bit clean.

Current state: 64-bit execulables under Solaris 7 cannot be compiled due many
issues. I cannot list them here - IMHO bugzilla has at least a file size limit
of 2GB =:-)

Sorry, but I don't have access to a machine running Solaris 7.
When/If my department gets one, you can be sure that I will do
builds on it.

Try to ask Sun for a Solaris 7 and Sun Workshop >= 5.0 license. IMHO they will
give you a machine for free (a Sun Ultra 5 with 128MB works fine for this job)
:-)

Aehm, does this mean that making Mozilla 64-bit-clean isn't planned yet ??

No, it only means that we don't have a Solaris 7 machine with new
PROMs to allow 64-bit mode.  We (I?) would like mozilla to be 64-bit
clean, and it _is_ possible with the hardware we have (DEC AlphaStations
running Linux and OSF/1 (aka Digital UNIX, aka Compaq Tru64)).  We will
be receiving a new HP machine running HP-UX 11.0 (64-bit) very soon, as
well.  So don't despair!  ;-)

Again, ask Sun. IMHO they'll give your the PROMs, the 64-bit-compiler and a Sun
Ultra5 for free to support your project...
(OK, at least the PROMs... and Solaris 7 works for production - we're using here
Solaris 7 for production and development...).
