Heads up (Was Package binaries for Solaris)

Sorry for the quick type - The packages are built on Solaris 9 for
Solaris 9 and should only be used in that way.

Hej Joern,

Yep - you are right (sorry for the pm, - wrong key). Please note: these
packages have been built on Solaris 9 and they are only suspected to
work there.

I am using several (like 200) on a Solaris 8 with success, however this
is not recommended due to binary issues. The "annoucement" was wrong in
that case, sorry for this.

No *smiles* - this is just not possible.
