Are we trimming platform-specific FAQs as we move forward? I figured an FAQ just got more accurate. And I only backpatch to the most recent branch. Are you talking about this? - The parallel regression test script (gmake check) is known to lock up - on PA-RISC when run under HP's Bourne shells: /usr/bin/sh and - /sbin/sh. To fix this problem, you will need PHCO_30269 with its - dependent patch or successor patches: - - PHCO_30269 s700_800 cumulative sh-posix(1) patch - PHCO_29816 s700_800 rc(1M) scripts cumulative patch - - To work around this problem, use ksh to run the regression script: - - gmake SHELL=/bin/ksh check - - If you see that the tests have stopped making progress and only a shell - process is consuming CPU, kill the shell process and start over with the - above command. This was removed in CVS HEAD, but it imagine it applies to 8.1.X because the regression test is still a shell script in 8.1.X. I will re-add it, but in general it seems like we win more than lose by copying the FAQ's backward, partly because I don't usually apply them to the back branches. -- Bruce Momjian [EMAIL PROTECTED] EnterpriseDB http://www.enterprisedb.com + If your life is a hard drive, Christ can be your backup. + ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 3: Have you checked our extensive FAQ? http://www.postgresql.org/docs/faq
