- Solaris 8/9 with gcc-3.2 and gcc-3.2.1: "gftopk: fatal: putbyte(255)
failed." Solution: recompile gftopk without optimization, e.g.
(cd texk/web2c; rm -f gftopk.o; make gftopk CFLAGS=)
Maksym, you didn't say which Solaris version you ran gftopk on.
Does gftopk itself fail, if you simply run it by hand?
I just tried the *current* gftopk on the larm1000.600gf that is at
http://tug.org/~karl/larm1000.600gf on both sparc-solaris2.7 and
sparc-solaris2.8 machines, and it *succeeded* both times. Does it
succeed for you?
So, I surmise something else is going on.
It would take me a long time to download the whole ISO and install it on
Sparc. So unless someone else can reproduce this, I suggest we simply
move ahead. If there is a bug, we can always put a patch on the web page.
I generated the larm* pk fonts myself under Linux, at least -- russian
tldoc needed them.
