Well, it works, with kernel 2.6 series and boots up to desktop just

So why the laughing ("LOL")? I'm using the Debian Etch release,
not Lenny, by the way.


Really? Wow. How slow is the CPU in that thing?


That's right.


Where do I find that? I'll have to look again. I've always shut down
at the
command prompt ("init X" as root) since I didn't see that.


See below about the compile issues.


Hmm. Maybe I should try the older version? Anyway, the error I was
getting was something like "bad ELF class: ELFCLASS32", suggesting
a 32-bit/64-bit clash somewhere. I posted a thread on the
"gnu.gcc.help"
newsgroup about my problem, by the way.


Actually, I was talking about the Solaris system I run on my X86
machine, Intel
Core 2 Quad, which IS a quad-core CPU and hence I _do_ want the
OpenMP.
But if I'm running into trouble compiling GNU programs on Solaris X86,
why
should I not run into trouble compiling it on Solaris SPARC?

Does it support the OpenMP I want for the X86 machine?
