I managed to installed Solaris 2.5.1 for PowerPC on a Motorola Powerstack (MT604-133) system, but as this was a very rare OS there is virtually no software available for it...
Is anyone aware of a compiler for this system? I understand there was a release of the sun workshop compiler for ppc, but i've had absolutely no luck locating this. There are also supposedly some compatible versions of GCC however i can't find a precompiled version and without any compiler whatsoever, can't bootstrap it from source.

Your best hope is to try to build a cross compiler, then cross compile a compiler (canadian cross?) assuming you can find a binutils/gcc that support powerpc solaris.

Hello,

Same situation here. I'm running it on Powerstack E1, and searching the compilers for a long time. I've located someone who had the compilers set, he'll search for them and I'll let you know when receive the outcome.

Did we ever get hold of Solaris 2.5.1 PPC compilers? Which ones were they?

I, too, am also extremely interested in this. I just got set up a Solaris 2.5.1 PowerPC environment and would like to be able to write and port my own programs. If anyone can shed us light with this, it would be most appreciated. I registered to this forum for this sole reason.

Thank you in advance.

If it was me, I'd try doing this, as it seems better than waiting for 3 years hoping one appears! Perhaps one of the posters who wants this compiler is now running Windows 10, so can use the Linux subsystem to start working on building GCC. I imagine there should be guides online for how to do this with GCC.

I gave up on searching the compiler. The best we can try is to cross compile...

Anyone try the later Qemu to run this?

Oddly enough it'll run MacOS 9, and OS X v1.x now...
