FUSE Emulator Package for Solaris x86

Here you can find Digital Prawn's Solaris x86 build of FUSE and supporting libraries in Solaris pkg format.

FUSE is Philip Kendall's free ZX Spectrum emulator for UNIX systems. The Emulator is licensed under the GPL and the source code for everything used in this package can be downloaded below.

Update, 17th May 2010:- Rome Novikow has now built a new FUSE package for Solaris which works on the newer versions of the operating system. Please download it from the HiInfoTech Ltd website. Click on "EN" on the left of the page, and click on the various Russian links on the left of the page and you will find that the subpages appear in English. You must follow the "Common Installation Rules" on that site in order to install the Solaris FUSE emulator. Thanks very much to Rome for building this newer version of FUSE for Solaris.

Update, 21st September 2009:- I find that I'm currently too busy in real life to offer further support on this particular package. I've also been away from the ZX spectrum scene for some time. Thanks to N.R.Konstantinovich for pointing out that this package does NOT work on the newer Solaris 10 05/09 release. (fails with (fuse:1368): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: file gobject.c: line 819: assertion `G_TYPE_IS_OBJECT (object_type)' failed Segmentation Fault (core dumped) ) If you require further help using FUSE on Solaris then please try either the World of Spectrum web forums or comp.sys.sinclair USENET group. Of course I will leave the existing package on here for those users who continue to use the older Solaris releases. Thanks, Digital Prawn

Package history

28/08/08 - A completely new package bundle was built from scratch in a "modular" form consisting of the main fuse-emulator package and several separate support library packages each in their own pkg file. README file was written, and the package version 1.0.1 released.

05/06/08 - Version 1.0 of the Soalris package was released but later withdrawn due to possible shared library conflicts with certain Solaris OS versions.
