this is a call for help. It has become increasingly difficult to
maintain Firewall Builder and all its components on many different OS. I
am considering limiting number of supported OS to a manageable minimum,
in particular I think I'll drop Solaris from the list. Here is the list
of OS and distributions I can either test on myself or I get reliable
help from others:
If there is anybody on the list who is interested and can provide help
with testing and debugging on Solaris, please speak up. It seems most of
the difficulties come from the fact that build environment is
non-standard for Solaris and requires lots of additional libraries to be
installed. The code itself should be ok, except for a known bug #571882.
I'll take care of this bug if I know that the rest of the build process
and maintenance is covered.
Ideally I am looking for someone who can debug build process and build
environment with my minimal assistance. I will keep doing code
maintenace and bug fixes, if there are bugs specific to Solaris.
So, if some brave soul can give me a hand, please let me know soon,
otherwise I'll drop it and make corresponding change in the FAQ, so
people won't ask for it.
