Using Phillip Ezolt's Tru64 patch as a starting point, I've got
a sort-of working PCP setup for Solaris 8.
As for the sort-of part, here's what's still b0rked.
Solaris 8's '/bin/sh' is very broke, so for a while I was using
the Korn Shell. When the last patch cluster broke even ksh, I had
to resort to bash. As a result, install is very very broken.
I haven't started on the Solaris specific PMDA yet, and a number of
the provided PMDAs (cisco, roomtemp, shping) don't compile because of
one missing header/function or another.
Finally, I'm trying to track down an issue with floating point numbers
displaying incorrectly. I had lots of trouble with all the *_MAX macros,
so that's what I'm going to check first.
Is there any interest in me providing a current patch? Or would
rather wait until I get something that at least prints FP numbers correctly?
