I was wondering whether SRS has a version which could work properly
on Sun Solaris.

Recently, I compiled SRS5.0.5 in different machines which run Solaris
2.5.1, and 2.6, using gcc compiler(gcc version None of these
compilation run smoothly, major error messages are as following:

gcc: unrecognized option `-Xa'
sdlnew.c:454: warning: initialization makes integer from pointer without
a cast

I also tried to use cc compiler to compile SRS5.0.5 in a Sun Solaris
machine, the compilation was also quite bad.

Now we are running SRS5.0.5 server in a Sun Ultra 2 machine, which was
compiled using gcc compiler in Solaris 2.5.1. We ignored the warning
messages before. But we are sufferring several malfunctions od SRS, such
as the table below the three buttons in the View Manager page doesn't
show up, etc. I also met problems to index gcg format EMBL databank, the
whole GENBANK. Both of these databanks's ID fields could not be indexed,
and the process stopped because of core dump.

I did try to compile SRS5.0.5 in a SGI IRIX 6.2 machine, which ran
quite smoothly without a single error. But quite sadly, that is not our
machine, so we couldn't set up a SRS server on that machine.

Hope SRS developing team can answer the question whether SRS has a
version which could run properly under Sun Solaris.
