I looked at the interfaces, bugs, and general archives for the past month and
could not find anything similar to the problem I'm having.
I'm having issues with ecpg compiled programs built on several 8.2.0 installs
I've done (all on suse linux kernel 2.6.13-15.12). The same program had no
issues built/run on postgres 8.1.5 on the same computers. ( I'm not using
the postgres in the suse distro packages -- I built everything for 8.1.5 and
8.2.0 from the source on a postgresql ftp mirror. )
In all cases the configure, make, make check, and install all appear to work
properly. I'm not having connection issues -- psql works locally and
connects to remote servers. pgadminIII on a Windows box also works talking
to the servers.
A simple test program compiled with ecpg worked fine for 8.1.5
which can be found here: http://www.kenjennings.cc/st/prg/ux/test_pgc.tar.gz
The program does simple error checking using sqlca.sqlstate which the postgres
docs (31.11.2) suggest is preferable to sqlca.sqlcode.
When rebuilt for 8.2.0 it appears to not work anymore. After a lot of digging
and adding extra debugging I discovered that all the EXEC SQL are actually
executing just fine. The problem is that the contents of sqlca.sqlstate
is not changing, and as sqlstate perpetually contains garbage which doesn't
match "00000" the program thinks everything fails. sqlca.sqlcode is being
updated, as are sqlca.sqlerrm.sqlerrml and sqlca.sqlerrm.sqlerrmc.
I've done a dozen installs and reinstalls of 8.2.0 on these servers using
different configuration options over the past few days (and I'm getting
pretty darned good at it). Everything seems to install perfectly each time.
The original configure line used for 8.2.0 for two of the three systems is
the same as used for 8.1.5:
CONFIGURE = '--with-tcl' '--with-perl' '--with-openssl'
One of the systems does not have the --with-openssl option, since it is
missing a dependency. Removing the openssl option from the build on the
other systems does not change the behavior of ecpg compiled programs on those
Does anyone have any idea of something I might be doing wrong with the
pgsql-interfaces by date
