GCC installation problem for OpenSolaris (VM)

Just today as I was trying to port my application code to Solaris and the first thing was to install GCC for Opensolaris and I was using VMware for that purpose.

While installing GCC I got the following error:

user name not found: root

Which didnt make any sense at all so after doing a little bit research I found out that its because the /etc/passwd file is very much out of date and was showing date from 1970.

To fix that…

Simple save the /etc/passwd file with the current date using the superuser previliges and then retry GCC installation which hopefully will not give any problem after this change has been done.
