Goodbye Solaris 9 (for Sun Studio)


We're making the internal transition to building Sun Studio on Solaris 10 (instead of Solaris 9). This is a big deal because the product bits immediately become useless on any Solaris 9 system. There's a new libm.so.2 library that became available on Solaris 10, and if you depend on it, you can't run on Solaris 9. It's a challenge making sure our vast ocean of loosely maintained lab machines is ready for the change. The good news is we get to use newer, faster hardware. :-)

I'll make this post short because I'm using ScribeFire for the first time in forever, and I don't trust it. I can't believe blogging is still this hard. :-(
