Nice - haven't personally tested the new snapshot, but I was able to bootstrap on OpenSolaris 2008.05 the other day using my own snapshot. Just for an experiment, I unmasked GCC 4.3.1 at the very beginning and was able to bootstrap and emerge the entire system using GCC 4.3.1 (as well as GCC 4.2.4) My OpenSolaris install was very "clean" and I only installed SUNWgcc and SUNWgmake (+ dependencies) from the repository. If anyone else is interested, here is a couple of deviations from the Solaris 10 bootstrap doc I had to perform: - "emerge --oneshot --nodeps =sys-devel/m4-1.4.10-r3" before emerging flex in CL 1.8 (perhaps the upstream flex ebuild should depend on m4 - or would they not bother because m4 is assumed to be a system package?) - "emerge --oneshot --nodeps bison" before emerging GCC - when testing a bootstrap again with just GCC 4.3.1 I also emerged gmp and mpfr before gcc Matt. -- gentoo-alt@l.g.o mailing list
