More details would definitely be nice, but what happens if you do a "which make"?

make is installed by default on Solaris, there is no need to install another one.
Actually two of them are there:
- the standard System V make which is /usr/ccs/bin/make
- Gnu make which is /usr/sfw/bin/gmake

You just need to add one or both of these paths to your PATH, and use the gmake command instead of make should your Makefile requires Gnu make. Alternatively, you can just give the full path of the command explicitely.

Do you mean you have no idea on how to launch a command while you are given its full path ?

Add /usr/sfw/bin and /usr/ccs/bin to your PATH by, for example, opening your .bashrc file and adding

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/sfw/bin:/usr/ccs/bin

That adds the directories in which gmake and make reside so you can access them at the command line without entering the full path. The colons are used to append more paths to the existing variable PATH.

hi guys
i manage to have my user's quota on /var
but i have one issue
it seems like my inetd.conf is not running
i installed qpopper (pop3 server daemon) and add the /usr/local/sbin/popper on inetd.conf
and i do a kill -HUP to restart inetd
it says "hangup"
i check if 110/tcp on my /etc/services
i have something like this:
pop3 110/tcp pop-3 # Post Office Protocol -
Version 3

i should mention that i am using Outlook express as my mail client

when i test my port 110 doing
telnet "serverip" 110
it doesn't connect

what do u guys think that i am missing there?
