Post subject:  Issues with IE5 for Unix (Solaris 7)


I recently wanted to test IE5 for Unix and obtained a copy of Solaris 7, Gunzip (thanks for wasting an hour of my time trying to find you) and IE itself.

But I ran into an issue: it just won't run.

Seriously, when I run ./iexplorer from /usr/local/microsoft/bin it halts the Terminal prompt for a few seconds and then goes back to it. No traces of the IE window.

And I forgot to tell that IE said that it was unable to do something registry-related and asked me to reinstall the component, but then just continued. However, Outlook still works.

Any ideas on how to fix that?

What does truss say about it? It might help. I've successfully ran IE even on Solaris 10 with the help of a small DTrace script.

Using truss, the Solaris equivalent to strace, you see the syscalls. Paste them somewhere and we'll see what we can figure out.

Which attributes do I pass to truss?
