Second Life client running on Solaris x64

Yes. I was able to build the recently open sourced Second Life client. It took me couple of days to get to this stage. To get it running took half a day. The reason being that ENDIAN was set to BIG for non-Linux boxes and that had me stumped for a long time. Of course, being behind SWAN firewall doesnt let the client connect to the server :-( Any one knows a way to achieve this?

Any way, here is the obligatory screenshot. Will keep posted on the updates.

Any chance of you sharing what you had to do to get it to build? (for those of us not on SWAN ;)

Many campuses have SOCKS gateways. Wrap your socket calls with SOCKS and it should work. -- Stephen

Mads: Please wait till my follow up blog on this. Stephen: I tried with SOCKS (runsocks, which I have to build for x86). It went a bit further. It was able to recognise the server host, but was timing out when it was sending the message template. -Siva

Siva,

Wow, good stuff! If you can share, we'd love to add support for the Solaris to OpenSL (opensecondlife.org)-- my name in-world is Christian Prior if you are able to contribute and have any interest.

Great work, and all the best, Christian
