    Hi all,
    I have installed sun solaris 8 on Intel box. Now I am trying to install Oracle 9i for solaris(Intel) but i am not able to do it.
    The problem is that solaris is not having "make" utility.
    I could not get it by "find" command.
    Can anybody tell me why i am not having "make" utility, and how can i find one.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Ashoo

    what is the output of the command

    whereis make
    on my machine its something like

    whereis make
    make: /usr/ccs/bin/make

    or type man make.If there is no output then you need to install it from the Solaris CD.if there is some output then Oracle is not bale to find it.Make sure it is in your path.

    regards

    if you do something like :

    pkginfo | egrep -i 'gcc|make'

    do you get something like :

    application SMCgcc gcc
    system SUNWxcu4t XCU4 make and sccs utilities


    if not, then the packages are not installed, and that's why you can neither use make nor compile...

    solution is : install the packages

    installation is always made with the pkgadd utility.

    all you have to do is either locate the package file on the CD using a find, or download it from the web (sunfreeware.com).

    then man pkgadd, and you're done
