Building Software on OpenIndiana
These pages provide scripts and instructions for building software on OpenIndiana. Most software is compiled using gcc 4.6.2 from opencsw. Note that it is possible to compile most of these software using Oracle Solaris Studio compilers, however we had issues with compiling and using Qt in this scenario (especially when building in 64 bit mode). Hence, we decided to use only GCC for C++.
All SPT servers run OpenIndiana, and hence have been tested on OpenIndiana. We initially build and test these software on an OpenIndiana Parallels virtual machine running on a MacBookPro. These instructions should also work on all Solaris/Illumos variants.
