attached to this mail is a patch from a colleague that makes
PostgreSQL-7.0.2 run on Linux for the Intel-IA64 architecture. It also
fixes a bug in the configure scripts that caused configure to fail on
the fcntl(F_SETLK) test.
This fix triggered a bug in the fcntl(F_SETLK) code of the Linux
kernel when used on unix domain sockets resulting in postmaster to
segfault immediately after startup. There is a fix available and
included in the kernel that will be on SuSE Linux 7.0, but kernels <=
2.2.16 still have this bug.
Therefore we decided to disable the calls to fcntl(F_SETLK) in
src/backend/libpq/pqcomm.c as workarround for the PostgreSQL RPMs for
SuSE Linux which I am currently working on. The patch (hack) doing
this is also included.
If you put garbage in a computer nothing comes out but garbage.
But this garbage, having passed through a very expensive machine,
is somehow enobled and none dare criticize it.
