gcc on Solaris


I have Solaris 9 installed on my Ultra Sparc 10 Workstation and would like to install gcc on the box.

Has anyone on here done this before? Any pointers?

I would also like to be able to install OpenSSH as well. Is gcc on one of the Software Disks or OpenSSH?

TIA

SSH is available in the media kit; however, I'm not sure about gcc. If it is, it would probably be on disk 2.

Would it also be availabe through the Solaris 9 download on Disk 1 or Disk 2?

What is the package name I should look for?

TIA

Hi,
The pakage name of is SFWgcc.
And it is on the "Solaris Software Companion CD".
SSH is installed by default.

cwolf:

Is sshd installed as well? If it is, it isn't running and I would like to use it instead of Telnet.

There's a lot of stuff I need to learn. I'm pretty good at Linux but I'm just a newb when it comes to Solaris.

I'm assuming a lot of this stuff can be done with the admintool. My biggest concern is doing this all by command line and not GUI.

TIA

Do a "pkginfo -l | grep -i ssh"
It should be installed by default.
The admintool is very good for User/Group and Printer-Management.
You can also do many things with the Solaris Management Console which I avoid to use
In my oppinion Solaris is best administrated using the cmd-line
