Ahrgl, 1st mistake: wrong subject, sorry > I'm currently in the process of porting git (184.108.40.206 for now) to the HP NonStop > platform and found several issues: > > - HP NonStop is lacking poll(), git is making quite some use of it. > My Solution: I 'stole' the implementation from GNUlib, which implements > poll() using select(). > Git should either provide its own poll(), not use it at all or resort to using > GNUlib, what do you think?. > > - HP NonStop is lacking getrlimit(), fsync(), setitimer() and memory mapped IO. > For now I've commented out the part that used getrlimit() and use a home > brewed implementation for fsync(), setitimer() and mmap(). > > - git makes use of some C99 features or at least feature that are not availabe in > C89, like 'inline' > C89 is the default compiler on HP NonStop, but we also habe a c99 compiler, so > telling configure to search for c99 should help here. > > - libintl and libiconv sem to get linked in the wrong order, resulting in > unresolved symbols. > I've just moved the "ifndef NO_GETTEXT" section of Makefile to above the > "ifdef NEEDS_LIBICONF" section. > > - HP NonStop doesn't have stat.st_blocks, this is used in builtin/count-objects.c > around line 45, not sure yet how to fix that. > > - HP NonStop doesn't have stat.st_?time.nsec, there are several places what an > "#ifdef USE_NSEC" is missing, I can provide a diff if needed (offending > files: builtin/fetch-pack.c and read-cache.c). > > - HP NonStop doesn't know SA_RESTART > I fixed that with a "#define SA_RESTART 0" in the 3 files affected (builtin/log.c, > fast-import.c and progress.c) > > - using C99 but not using #include <strings.h> results in compiler errors due to > a missing prototype for strcasecmp() I fixed it by adding that to git-compat- > util.h > > - HP NonStop doesn't have intptr_t and uintpr_t (in its stdint.h) I added them to > git-compat-util.h > > - HP NonStop doesn't need the " #define _XOPEN_SOURCE 600", just like > __APPLE__, __FreeBSD__ etc, so I added a "&& !defined(__TANDEM) in git- > compat-util.h > > - there seems to be an issue with compat/fnmatch/fnmatch.c not including > string.h, seems that HAVE_STRING_H is not #define'd anywhere. > > > - Once compiled and installed, a simple jojo@\hpitug:/home/jojo/GitHub $ git > clone git://github.com/git/git.git fails with: > /home/jojo/GitHub/git/.git/branches/: No such file or directory After creating > those manually it fails because the directory isn't empty, > catch-22 > After some trial'n'error I found that the culprit seems to be the subdirectories > branches, hook and info in /usr/local/share/git-core/templates/, if I > remove/rename those, the above command works fine. > I have no idea why that is nor how to properly fix it, anyone out there? > > Bye, Jojo -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
