The Users Guide states that Solaris 8 is needed for >SPARC stations. We have Solaris 7 installed and it seems that this means >we will have to install the (free) upgrade to Solaris 8. A colleague >(who actually "owns" the computer) is less than keen about Solaris 8. Is >Solaris 8 actually necessary for McIDAS 7.8 or will Solaris 7 suffice? No. I run McIDAS on Solaris 2.6, 2.7, and 2.8. >In the latter event, are we more likely to run into difficulties than we >would if we installed on top of Solaris 8? No, not, that is, if your 2.7 system and compilers have current patches installwd. >regards and thanks, Please let me know if you run into any snags when installing the latest version of Unidata McIDAS, 7.8. >Jim Frysinger > >-- >James R.
