Solaris 2.x Operating Environment: system header files and make utility not found (Doc ID 1011725.1)

Last updated on MARCH 15, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Solaris Studio - Version Sun Studio 9 and later
All Platforms


After installing Solaris[TM] 10 or earlier, one (or more) of these symptoms occur when trying to use development tools, such as an unbundled compiler (/opt/SUNWspro/prod/bin/cc, /opt/SUNWspro/prod/bin/CC) or bundled development utilities, e.g., make, sccs, ar, lex:

1. Compiling any program yields errors about some system header files (e.g., /usr/include/stdio.h) not found.

2. Trying to use the "make" utility yields the error "make:Command not found"; and similar errors for other bundled developments tools (which reside in /usr/ccs/bin).

3. Compilation diagnostics indicating missing libraries.
