Based on reports so far, 1.1.2 would build on Solaris 2.6 through 10 (the same versions of Solaris that 1.0.5 supported), and 1.1.3 should build on those too (avoiding the compiler warnings that were reported to us), as well as on 2.5 (without PAM). I'd like to thank Steve Christensen of Sunfreeware for doing the test builds. At this point, we primarily need more reports for systems other than Linux and Solaris. Specifically, we need HP-UX, *BSD's (both with and without PAM), and anything else you might test this on. Thanks, Alexander
