Hi Russel,

actually I am using kdevlop under SuSE -Linux and I want to port a project to Solaris/Sun for my
institute. Our System-Administrator isn't interested for KDE/Kdevelop. So I have to do the port job on my
account. Could you give some hints about the c++compiler you are using under Solaris and how to install
Qt locally (on my account not as root).

Thanks in Advance

Walid
