I'm also having trouble getting irb to work on Solaris.  My problem appears
with irb --readline.  I've cleaned everything out and I'm now going to
rebuild everything with the latest snapshots of source.  I'll let you know
how it goes.

uname -a
SunOS frisco 5.8 Generic_108528-15 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-4

gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 3.2

Subject: irb aborts in 1.7.3 on Solaris


Hi:

I did not get an answer to this before, so I'll post again.

I just did a cvs get and compiled 1.7.3 on Solaris:

uname -a
SunOS juno 5.8 Generic_108528-14 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-5_10


When running irb, I get the following error:

irb
/home/jfn/myruby173/lib/ruby/1.7/sparc-solaris2.8/nkf.so: [BUG]
Segmentation fault
ruby 1.7.3 (2002-12-04) [sparc-solaris2.8]
Abort


Is this a known problem?
