This is an alpha version of NetBSD 1.5.
System is a fairly stock PowerMac 7500 with a 604 CPU upgrade,
original disk drive. The Perl is from the NetBSD package system,
version 5.004_04. egcs-1.1.2 (as modified by BSD).
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with perl --with-x
First problem: ODBC doesn't compile. |-(
Second problem: with elf binaries the location of shared libraries
is supposed to be compiled in so each program can reference its own
set of shared objects without conflict. This doesn't seem to jibe
with how the build/install makefiles do things. I get missing shared
libraries when I try to access the DB as a normal user, and the
mechanism I would have used to fix this on an xcoff system is
deleted, or at least deprecated, on an elf system.
There is a package for postgres and it seems to do something
different w.r.t. shared libraries. OTOH I can't get the regression
tests to run with the package even though psql works fine. (The
error is 'installing PL/pgSQL .. createlang: cannot find the file
Third problem: well actually the regression tests seem to work, mostly. ;-)
geometry failed with a number of roundoff differences and a
opr_sanity, type_sanity, oidjoins, and rules all failed with
the build having error messages where some kind of results were
All other tests passed (including random?!?!).
If Tom L. wants to beat on this I can give him an account on the
machine. I've used up the time I have to devote to it. I'm pretty
much stuck with 6.4.0 on Solaris 2.5 for real work.
Signature failed Preliminary Design Review.
Feasibility of a new signature is currently being evaluated.
