HELP: installation of PostgreSQL

Post by Alex » Tue, 21 Mar 2000 04:00:00



Hi,
 I am in the process of installing PostgreSQL 6.5.3 and
1. The ./configure program says it can't detect what my machine is (--
disable-locale has to be done manually)
2. gmake doeswn't work at all, giving a line like:
[1] 1234
then going back to the prompt

I am following the instructions from the admin pdf, located at the
postgreSQL site.

Can anyone please help?
Regards, Alex?.

Try 'uname -a' which among others states your release.

Then try eg.: ./configure i686-linux

I didn't actually use this Andreas, as I had not checked my email until
today, it sorted itself out somehow.
However, I just had the same problem for LinuxPPC a few minutes ago. So I
did what you said:
./configure ppc-linux
and it worked, but during the tests performed it said gcc couldn't compile
exe's!!! Ah well, I'll figure it out...

1. Postgresql installation error

Hello, I downloaded postgresql-6.5.3.tar.gz, gunzipped it and followed the
installation

instructions ( in install).

I'm doing a fresh installation of Postgresql.

After starting gmake:

$ gmake all > make.log 2>&1 &

$ tail -f make.log

everything went fine, until these error messages:

gmake[3]: Entering directory

gmake: *** [all] Error 2

And the installation procedure was stopped.

What could be missing? I'm installing this on a Mandrake 7.0 distribution.

Any comments/help greatly appreciated!
