Script to build gcc on solaris 10
Closed - This job posting has been filled and work has been completed.
Requirement: I need a script that will compile the latest versions of gcc, cmake and make from source on a clean install of Solaris 10, running in VirtualBox on a PC without an Internet connection.
Background: Solaris 10 only comes with gcc 3.4, and this is too old to compile many of the libraries required for my current project.
I have spent days trying to build gcc, and can't afford any more time trying to figure it out. I am therefore commissioning a script to do it that will automate the whole process.
Deliverables will be as follows:
1. Names, versions and links to source code packages required to install and compile recent versions of make, cmake and gcc (4.7 or later). I will download these and put them on the Solaris desktop.
2. A bash shell script that unpacks the various packages in the correct order, runs 'configure', 'gmake' and 'gmake install' where necesssary, and sets up required values for PATH and LD\_LIBRARY\_PATH if necessary.
The whole process should be as automated and hands-off as possible, once the source packages have been copied into the Solaris environment.
I have tried the steps listed in http://saurus.steg0.eu/2010/12.gcc
The successful bidder will set up VirtualBox and Solaris 10 on their own hardware and verify that the script can be run to completion on a clean install of Solaris.
All the software in this project is open source or free.
I expect this will be a straightforward project for someone who has worked with these tools and environment before.
