[ace-users] [tao-bugs] ACE/TAO build: Problems building on amd64/x86_64 Solaris 10

hat did the trick; I have 5.5.8 building with the stock Solaris 10 x64
GCC (3.4.3).

For giggles, I tried a couple older packages -- it looks like the latest
release package, 5.5.0, has the same linkage problem, but, e.g., 5.5.6
works properly.

For production software use, am I better off going with the slightly
older version, or is the current "Beta Kit" more stable?

Thanks again,

Hi Alex,

Thanks for using the PRF.

ACE 5.4.9 is very old. Please upgrade to ACE+TAO+CIAO x.5.8 (i.e., ACE
5.5.8, TAO 1.5.8, and CIAO 0.5.8), which you can download from


under the heading: "Latest Beta Kit".

The DOC groups at Washington University, UC Irvine, and Vanderbilt
University only provide "best effort" support for non-sponsors for the
latest release, as described in


Thus, if you need more "predictable" help for earlier versions of
ACE+TAO, I recommend that you check out


for a list of companies that will provide you with ACE+TAO commercial

Hi Alex,



5.5.8 is better than 5.5.6 since they're both betas and .8 is newer.
For the general answer to "what is better to use for production
software?" that answer depends on what you want to happen if a problem
comes up later, and how much help you'd like to have available. I'd be
happy to discuss these issues with you and see what your biggest
concerns and needs are. You can also look through the various
commercial support companies' web sites and compare/contrast what
services are offered.

Best regards,

Steve Huston, Riverace Corporation
