Hello, I've been asked to setup a Solaris file server for windows clients for a small company. At my home office i run slackware 10.2 server with sendmail,apache,samba. I'm totally new to solaris, my contact person at this company does not know much about this system. So I started from scratch here is what I have accomplished. Configured lan and internet access, downloaded and unzipped Samba. Started to configure but ahhh no complier!! Surfed to blastwave.org followed the howto's on pkg-get and wget successfully. Here is my issue. I type pkg-get install gcc and receive the following ERROR: gcc unrecognized. I've googled and have hit a stalemate. Can someone please shed some light as to what I need to change?
kebabbert ,jilliagre where can I find a howto on compiling this(gcc)? Again I did not build this server and I'm a newbie to solaris. Can you please point me to where I would find a howto for gcc on solaris 10?
kebabbert thanks so much now have different issue I don't know if the system was powered down incorrectly when I was not here but my experience tells me it was, everything I've done up to this point I no longer can verify. Tried to wget the gcc and got wget: not found Ahhh checked my /tmp and nothing is in there that was there yesterday not samba, etc. Here is the output of the who command
root console aug 30 10:05 (:0)
root pts/3 aug 30 10:05 (:0.0)
root pts/5 aug 30 10:05 (0:0)
root pts/4 aug 30 10:05 (0:0)
ok when I originally began the setup they were logging in as user genesis with password of root. Obviously I inquired as to roots password and was told and confirmed it was also root. Up until this morning configuring as root things were going fine. What do i need to do? My background is windows its a profile thing right?
wrong sorry login username: genesis, password: 23genesis, then su root:root. Past two days no problems. Now login genesis with password and I'm getting
