Hi Everyone
This is my first post, so please make me aware of mistakes. I'm also quite new to linux, so please be very clear and thorough in your answers - thanks.
I'm working with a postgreSQL database, which I must install on a powerpc. The OS of the powerpc does not contain a compiler, so I need to cross compile it on a ordinary linux and then copy it to the powerpc. But when I type "make" I get the following error:
make -C doc all
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/postgresql-8.1.4/doc'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/postgresql-8.1.4/doc'
make -C src all
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/postgresql-8.1.4/src'
make -C port all
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/local/postgresql-8.1.4/src/port'

make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/postgresql-8.1.4/src/port'

My installation script looks like this:
# Script for compiling postgreSQL for use
# on a power pc.
make clean
echo -n Compiling postgreSQL to "$DESTDIR" for ...
./configure --host=$HOST --prefix=$PREFIX --exec-prefix=$PREFIX --without-zlib --bindir=$EPREFIX/bin --sbindir=$EPREFIX/sbin --libexecdir=$EPREFIX/libexec --datadir=$PREFIX/share --sysconfdir=$PREFIX/etc --sharedstatedir=$PREFIX/com --localstatedir=$PREFIX/var --libdir=$EPREFIX/lib --includedir=$PREFIX/include --oldincludedir=$PREFIX/include --infodir=$PREFIX/info --mandir=$PREFIX/man --without-readline || exit

#make check
make || exit

make install || exit

echo done!
echo -n Compilation complete
# ...end of the script.
I maybe found some of the answer at:;q=.zic+.%2Fzic%3A+cannot+execute+binary+file&amp;rnum=2&amp;hl=da#c6431c33e9cb71ba
But I can't figure that out. Could anyone explain me the solution?
Can anyone help me?
Regards Lars
