I found myself in a situation where I use ssh to remotely connect to Solaris or Linux server from a Windows7 OS. After been connected I had the problem of not been able to use the arrow keys to navigate up and down in the command line history.

In the end Oracle is killing me softly but surely with their absolute need to profit anything including Solaris error message and updates. In today’s world we constantly needs security updates because of flaws, so why one would not take credit for their bad programming skill, bugs or refuse to provide patches and even worst denies us to see incomplete error messages we received from the OS?!

A lot of people are upset at Oracle with all the bad they are doing to Sun’s legacy. I would love to complain about Oracle to them but they won’t even listen! I now thing they just don’t care. What are they doing to Solaris support? I can’t do much except blog about it because none of the local Oracle staff care or can do much.

Yes samba can be compiled on Solaris 10. Yes it’s sometime difficult. This post will be on x86 architecture. I have discussed a similar topic in a previous post on SPARC architecture. Again I am here compiling and updating it to a newer version of Samba and still having some issue.

Even I need to re-read my posts whenever I compile Samba… it never seem to work as it should… and here I am writing a new post about it!
