Could you do me a favor and post all the steps you took exactly as you entered them? This way I can add a system-specific section for Solaris to the HOWTO. For example, list the steps like this: 1. tar -xvjf tn5250-release.tar.bz2 2. download ncurses from ftp://ftp.wherever.com 3. tar -xvzf ncurses.tar.gz 4. ./configure --with-whatever-options ... I'll try to make a section with issues for each platform. This way people with Solaris, OS X, Irix, or whatever will be aware of potential problems and their workarounds. Please also specify the exact release of Solaris (like for example Solaris 9.1.abc or whatever scheme they may use). And I'd like to ask the same favor of the guy already running tn5250 on Mac OS X (dominix?). I won't be making a section for each distribution or release of linux/unix. For example, there won't be a Red Hat section and a Debian section - just a linux section. Likewise there won't be an AIX 4 section and an AIX 5L, just AIX (unless no one has any info on AIX, in which case there won't be any AIX section at all). The SCO section will probably just say, "Step 1: Get rid of SCO."
