Ticket #214 (closed patch: fixed)
[PATCH] Move Solaris 8/SPARC to unsupported
|Reported by:||doughera||Owned by:||jkeenan|
I'm afraid I no longer have the time to support parrot on this platform. (I doubt perl6 will ever run on my particular hardware anyway -- my last attempt to run 'make spectest' never finished -- it spent 6 hours swapping like mad before I had to kill it.)
The first patch simply moves the PLATFORMS results from the top "supported" section to the bottom "extra" section.
I don't know who submitted the other SPARC results in the PLATFORMS file, but they are getting pretty old too. If there is nobody else active with a sufficiently powerful machine to run and test parrot on SPARC, then the second patch (which removes SPARC from the list of "core" supported platforms in docs/parrot.pod) should probably also be applied.
