[kepler-dev] Kepler on Solaris

Hi Amanda,

Kepler uses Ptolemy and the non-graphical part of Ptolemy is run as
part of the Ptolemy nightly build every night on a Solaris 10 machine.
I have not recently run Ptolemy via X11 from a Solaris box, though it
should work.  I've probably run Kepler via X11 from a Solaris box in
the past, though I don't specifically recall doing so.

The Ptolemy project is always interested in contributions, see
and the Ptolemy style guide at:

    Hi there,
    My name is Amanda Waite and I'm a Staff engineer working with Open 
    Source Communities here at Sun. We see Kepler as an important 
    application particular in the area of Grid Computing and we would really 
    like to make it available on Solaris 10 and on the Sun Grid. What I'm 
    looking to do initially is make sure that Kepler runs on Solaris 10 
    without problems, and as expected performance-wise. I'll can then make 
    it available on the Sun Grid at http://www.network.com. I'd then like to 
    work with the community and if possible putback the changes, if any, 
    that were made in the course of the port.
    Does this sound ok? Does anyone already run Kepler on Solaris? I did 
    scan through the archives for the last year or so but didn't see any 
    references to Solaris.
