Solaris download website?

Hi

I used to download all my Sun Solaris from sunfreeware.com website. But looks like things have changed. Now they want me to pay for it by going to different site. Any one know any website I can download few Solaris packages? I need make and SCCS.

http://www.sunfreeware.com/programlistsparc10.html


Thanks.

There are an old make and old SCCS in /usr/ccs/bin/ (belongs to the OS package SUNWsprot)
The CSW site will provide GNU make and RCS,CVS,SVN,GIT.

You could just get the current Solaris build from Oracle
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/se...ads/index.html
You can also get patches from sunfreeware.com / unixpackages.com (same people) or you could use opencsw for your packages.

You can download the ISO for the latest Solaris build and it will not cost you anything. I just did it.
