Probably your best option would be to go with Everybuddy. It has a SPARC platform that works like kind of like GAIM where it supports AIM, Yahoo, MSN, Jabber.. and a few others I think.

Go Here: http://soldc.sun.com/freeware/detail...5_8_SPARC.html

Try this website: http://www.sunfreeware.com/

I know they have gcc 3.2 I believe for download.

still having problems

i have downloaded and installed gcc, gtk, make, automake, glib, wget, and some others. i still have a problem. i can't run make or automake. is there anything else i need to download to make everybuddy run. i almost think this isn't worth all the trouble, but it sure would make things a lot easier. thanks.

forgive me for taking it slightly off track here but i use amsn for linux, and find it works great. i went to their website and found that they provide platform independent source code. it is http://amsn.sourceforge.net/ if you want to have a look.

i snouted around on there but can't seem to see a list of dependencies, so i suppose you may have to download it and try it to find out!

i know, sorry to not be much help, but that's the one i use and i found it installed from source with no dependencies on my linux system, and i am often plagued with dependency problems.

What error are you getting when you "can't run make"? If you installed GCC from Sunfreeware, the binaries are gcc and gmake, not cc and make.

everything is a problem

i can't find gmake in any ls. when i try to run make, it says command not found or no such file or directory. this sun machine doesn't usually give me problems like this. any clues???

Sunfreeware packages typically install into /usr/local/bin. Is this in your PATH?
