Hello

I have serious troubles installing PostgreSQL 6.4.2 on an Indigo2 runnnig
Irix6.2,
using gcc2.8.1, gnumake 3.75 and flex2.5.4 to build PostgreSQL.

Configuration:

    configure --with-CC=gcc --without-CXX

Make (no Makefile.custom!):

    gmake COPT="-mabi=n32" LD="ld -n32" all

I've got some warnings, but no errors. Installation works fine and initdb
too.
But when I try to start postmaster with:

    postmaster -i

nothing happens! No shell prompt! I changed to another terminal window
and tried to create a database with

    createdb

After a few seconds I got an error message from postmaster like:

    IpcSemaphoreCreate: semctl (bad address) id=0

Has anyone successfully installed PostgreSQL 6.4.2 with gcc2.8.1/Irix6.2 and
can give me some hints?

Thanks in advance

    Richard Bchter
