Best "Best Linker" Book?



  • 1. Question on building shared libraries with one compiler and building an application with another.
    When on Solaris, if a shared library ( is built using the gcc compiler and Application 1 is built using a general C (cc) compiler and links in the newly built library ( built with gcc would there be an error during the building of Applicaiton 1 or during the runtime of Application 1 or would it work fine?
  • 2. How to tell if live upgrade worked?
    I've got a T2000 which I've live upgraded to u4, and (after discovering that luactivate doesn't work unless the EEPROM diag-switch? is changed from the default (grr)) its /etc/release file now starts: Solaris 10 8/07 s10s_u4wos_12b SPARC That looks good, however binaries like plockstat and dtrace are dated 2005, which seems a little old. So I'm suspicious that the upgrade hasn't worked properly. Is there any way to tell for sure? Cheers, Chris
  • 3. Online help for Solaris newbies?
    Hi! I am wondering if there some place in net that tells newbies the basics of Solaris as far as necessary to understand documentation and help for advanced users. I am really interested, have Solaris installed on my PC, but no real clue yet how everything works besides some obvious similarities with Linux. I am not an expert concerning Linux, too, though. Do you know any good starting point for me to find out more without having to ask lots of very basic questions here and elsewhere? :-) patrick
