                        POSTGRESQL BUG REPORT TEMPLATE
============================================================================


Your name		:	James Youngman
Your email address	:	jay(at)gnu(dot)org


System Configuration
---------------------
  Architecture (example: Intel Pentium)  	: Intel Pentium

  Operating System (example: Linux 2.0.26 ELF) 	: Linux 2.2.5

  PostgreSQL version (example: PostgreSQL-6.4.2)  :   PostgreSQL-6.4.2

  Compiler used (example:  gcc 2.8.0)		: Stock Red Hat 6


Please enter a FULL description of your problem:
------------------------------------------------
/usr/bin/pgaccess fails to load libpgtcl.so because that library
requires crypt(), and crypt() is no longer in libc.  




Please describe a way to repeat the problem.   Please try to provide a
concise reproducible example, if at all possible: 
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Run /usr/bin/pgaccess on Red Hat 6.0.  Observe the error message.



If you know how this problem might be fixed, list the solution below:
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Apply the following patch:-


--- /usr/bin/pgaccess   Sat Apr 17 15:59:09 1999
+++ pgaccess    Sat Sep  4 19:52:05 1999
@@ -2824,6 +2824,7 @@
 if {[string toupper $tcl_platform(platform)]=="WINDOWS"} {
        load libpgtcl.dll
 } else {
+       catch { load libcrypt.so }
        load libpgtcl.so
 }
 catch {draw_tabs}




This patch is in unified-diff format.  The patch should be appropriate
for all systems, since the extra load statement is enclosed in a
"catch", making any failure silent.
