Good day

I am currently working on a huge project, where the recommended database
is Postgresql. Unfortunately I just can't get it working on aix, and I
need some help please. I tried both v 8.1.0 and 8.0.4, but I keep on
hitting the same problem.

The gmake step succeeds by ending with "All of PostgreSQL successfully
made. Ready to install". However, gmake check fails with "initdb failed"
when it tries to initialize the database.

The log message at .src/test/regress/log ends with "child process was
terminated by signal 11".

We are using a 64bit IBM model p550 with aix 5.2 ML-07, with the IBM
linux toolkit for bison, flex, gcc, python etc.

Can anyone perhaps please help me ?

Thanks a lot,
