The idea was to use “bare” SqueezeCenter without bundled CPAN (the CPAN directory was moved away) modules, Solaris 11 (or Nevada build 88) and supplied with Solaris PERL and MySQL.
Then if you start slimserver.pl the errors will let you know which CPAN modules to install. For example:
The following modules failed to load: version JSON::XS YAML::Syck GD
. . .
Can’t locate JSON::XS.pm in @INC (@INC contains: squeezecenter-7.1-19407-noCPAN/CPAN/arch/5.8/i86pc-solaris-64int
Or For Nevada b95:
The following CPAN modules were found but cannot work with SqueezeCenter:
File::Temp (loaded 0.14, need 0.17)
I18N::LangTags (loaded 0.29, need 0.35)
To fix this problem you have several options:
1. Install the latest version of the module(s) using CPAN: sudo cpan Some::Module
2. Update the module’s package using apt-get, yum, etc.
3. Run the .tar.gz version of SqueezeCenter which includes all required CPAN modules.
Usually, the bundled CPAN is not up to date. So, let’s install it first:
# perl -MCPAN -e shell
cpan> install Bundle::CPAN
. . .
To install (or upgrade) a module run the following:
# perl -MCPAN -e shell
cpan> install JSON::XS
The only exception is Encode/Detect/Detector.pm or Encode::Detect::Detector. It’s has not being touched by the developer for many years and is not recommended for use. The module can be compiled with c++ or g++ (instead of used by default cc or gcc), but with a lot of pain and manual intervention. The easiest way is to get rid of it completely:
For the first time I did not have to do anything special to compile wine. Just configure and gmake. The rest is pretty the same: Picasa runs at 100% CPU load, Firefox 3b5 crashes every 5 minutes ;-)
If lsof is installed in your system:
xeon# lsof 2>/dev/null | fgrep :telnet
telnet 18409 alekz 4u IPv4 0xffffff0e3b19c740 0t0 TCP xeon:52431->10.0.0.1:telnet
xeon# lsof 2>/dev/null | fgrep :8080
firefox-b 699 alekz 52u IPv4 0xffffff02db1e0780 0t110637 TCP xeon:51567->dmz:8080 (UknownState_-2094513781)
firefox-b 699 alekz 67u IPv4 0xffffff0e3b0e06c0 0t127870 TCP xeon:47231->dmz:8080 (UknownState_-2094513781)

If lsof is not installed:
- Run pfiles /proc/* | less
- Search for port:
- Press </>
- Type port: 23
- Press <Enter>
The result may look like:
18409: telnet 10.0.0.1

New release, new features, new bug fixes and new bugs.
Let’s start with compiling.

Internet/Intranet Input Method (IIIM) is a distributed Input Method solution that provides Input support for Java & X11 clients via Internet/Intranet. The related documentation can be found here.
When I upgraded from snv_83a to snv_85 I lost the ability to switch layouts. This is what I discovered:

Beginning with wine 0.9.57 “-lsunmath” is needed. You can get the libsunmath library from blastwave, for example:
LIBS = -lsocket -lnsl -lintl -L/opt/csw/lib -lsunmath
This is the error you might get if the library is not specified in dlls/wined3d/Makefile:
