Notice from the author: I don't have access to a
Solaris box, I'm looking for someone to really port
gPS to Solaris. The rule for patch acceptance is:
if it doesn't break the compilation on Linux or
FreeBSD systems, it comes in.
Current top support is just dirty.
gPS has been tested with Solaris 2.6 (SunOS5.6) by Moritz Barsnick
<firstname.lastname@example.org> using a set of small patches. As mentioned in the
above section "HARDWARE/OS REQUIREMENTS", you need William LeFebvre's
top ("Top version 3.5beta8" was used for testing). To build,
./configure must be called with a POSIX Bourne shell such as bash,
because of some extensions used (Solaris' /bin/sh will not do):
Netwatching does not seem to work. (The remote host is endlessly being
searched for. If you have entered a remote host into gPS' GUI "Network
-> Network watch..." host list and cannot restart gPS afterwards,
restart with gps -dn
