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...).
