I'm using Fujitsu SPARC Enterprise server whose OS is Oracle (former Sun) Solaris 10. In Solaris, there is a number of minor differences from other major OS like Linux and Mac OS X, and a number of changes have been made to run Ruby (CRuby) without failure. I'd like to talk about these changes as a user of the Solaris OS.
The following topics will be included in this presentation.
Tips to build Ruby and other free software on Solaris
Recent changes to Ruby (CRuby) needed for Solaris
Bugs potentially affected to all platforms but revealed by running on Solaris
