Sun-Worshiper. I was able to fix SunPCI 3.2.2 binary. I'm in the process of using a hexeditor to find the validate_system_time call in the SunPCI 3.1 binary. Being new to this I was wondering if you might be able to educate me on how you figured out the offset where the call was made.
Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
The disassembly showed that 7f ff fe 2e was the hex value which was then searched for in the /usr/bin/ghex2 hex editor (the GHOME hex editor which was installed on my Solaris 10 11/06 s10s_u3wos_10 SPARC systerm).

It's too bad that we have to go the "patch-the-binary" road. Unless Sun has already decided that they will no longer support their product, it seems like they like to take their time to provide a fix.This sounds familiar to me. It's like the isssue with RSC 2.2.3 GUI on Windows. I visited the [download page|http://www.sun.com/servers/rsc.html] today, still there is no updated/fixed release.
