SUMMARY: POP 3 mail server & gcc for Solaris 2.x

Date: Tue Mar 19 1996 - 17:07:27 CST


My original questions were:

1. Does anyone know how to build & install the POP 3 (Post Office Protocol 3)
server on a system running Solaris 2.4 and another system running
SunOS 4.1.3?

2. How to build & install gcc compiler on Solaris 2.4 system?
In my knowledge, there is no C compiler bundled with Solaris 2.x any more.
So how can we use a system that comes without a C compiler to try to
compile source codes to make another compiler? (We cannot afford to buy
SunSoft's C Workshop.)


Thanks for those who responded. Follows are the answers to the question:

1. For POP 3 mail server, most people suggest me go to
   or to get it. I tried it and it worked.

   Also, in the file /etc/inetd.conf, the following entry need to be added:

   pop stream tcp nowait root /usr/etc/popper popper

2. gcc for Solaris 2.x:
   Got to,
   grab the file gcc-2.5.6.tar.gz, which can either be used as-is
   or used to compile your own, newer version of gcc.
   (There might be newer precompiled gcc binaries than the gcc-2.4.5.tar.gz,
   if somebody has that, will you please let me know, thanks).

Thanks again for people who helped me out.
