I have installed Solaris 11 on a SunFire X4100 server (AMD processor).
There is a fuse implementation from an OpenSolaris project built on the machine,
neon is installed from sources. gcc3.4.6 comes from the package available on sunfrreware.com.
When trying to compile davfs2-1.2.2, make fails saying
Making all in po

I can only see warnings, no error.
Is there any experience with buildimg davfs2 on Solaris? Is that possible at all?
Thank you for a short hint,
most probably davfs2 can be build and run on Solaris. But there is some work to do.
I use the GNU tools to build davfs2 in order to keep it port*able*. But it is not yet port*ed* to anything but GNU/Linux. As I have neither experience with porting to another OS nor with Solaris, I cannot do this. But if you succeed, I would like to include your work into the davfs2-sources.
As far as I know (and I don't know much), this are the issues with porting:
- missing or differently named header files:
e.g.: "cache.c:29:19: error.h: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden"
You have to find the matching header file on Solaris, and than make the includes
You may check the output of ./configure and config.h to find header related problems.
- missing functions and macros:
davfs2 uses GNU extensions, so some of the functions may not be available on Solaris.
In this case you will have to conditionally define a replacement function for this.
- There might be problems with missing or differently defined data types.
- There might be problems with the fuse-devices. davfs2 uses /dev/fuse, major 10, minor 229,
for communication with the kernel. This may be different on Solaris.
You make look at the fuse_kernel.h from your kernel sources for differences and make
conditional changes in davfs2 defaults.h and kernel_interface.h.
As I told, I am not able to do this, nevertheless some hints:
- You may look at the sources of other packages (like e.g. neon). Probable a lot of
the porting problems are allready solved there.
- For missing functions you may look at http://www.gnu.org/software/gnulib/.
- You may look for help on Solaris related news groups and web sites.
- You will most probably have to change configure.ac and use ./bootstrap to rebuild the package.
Please tell me about your progress and further problems.
Have a lot of fun and time
