Might be easier to install Linux.
i can't coz on sparc harware i can only install solaris .any one have tried compiling blednder on solaris psarc?
It should be do-able (with some amount of work!). You will need Python 3.2, OpenGL drivers and all the dependencies built for your platform.
You most certainly can install Linux on SPARC, e.g. http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/sparc/
. Given that you’re unfamiliar with building Blender, you’d be better off using a supported OS http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:2.5/Doc/Building_Blender/Linux
rather than striking out on your own.
