Running Listserv Lite on 3.3-RELEASE?

Running Listserv Lite on 3.3-RELEASE?

Post by Chris Boye » Thu, 25 Nov 1999 04:00:00



Listserv Lite bins are available for BSDI 2.x and Linux (?Release/?hat)

I would like to run it on 3.3-R but if necessary I have any one of the
2.2.x-RELEASES except 2.2.8.

Any one with direct experiance with Listserv Lite on FBSD or can recommned the
best combination of bin and RELEASE.

Of course I could go and get one of the Linux's :)

Got 5 FBSD boxes here on the LAN so would prefer not to make my brain
work any more than it needs.

Thanx for (almost) any suggstions.

Chris

  I don't know about the "Lite" versions, but the full LISTSERV product
links static by default (at least the older version I'm running on BSD/OS
2.1 does) so you shouldn't run into problems activating the image. I don't
know if there's enough commonality between syscalls for it to work.

  I did once build a full C News/Reference NNTP/innxmit package on BSD/OS
2.x for a customer who had a FreeBSD 2.something system, so I know that at
least some non-trivial code will run.

  I just looked and LISTSERV-Lite for BSD/OS is still linked static:

(1:30) gate:/tmp# tar -xvf BSDi-Lite.tar lsv
lsv
tar: ustar vol 1, 39 files, 4741120 bytes read.
(0:31) gate:/tmp# file lsv
lsv: 386 compact demand paged pure executable not stripped
(0:32) gate:/tmp# shlist lsv
(0:33) gate:/tmp#

  so I'd suggest that you give it a try. I just plopped the executable on
a 3.3-RELEASE box (without doing the install, so it won't work but at least
we can see if it loads) and got:


FreeBSD 3.3-RELEASE #2: Wed Nov 10 09:24:06 EST 1999    

24 Nov 1999 12:43:37 >>> Error X'0028002B' opening file PERMVARS FILE A <<<

24 Nov 1999 12:43:37  -> I/O mode: Block write + delete

Quote:>>> Cannot create '/listserv.PID' <<<

Abort(core dumped)

  So at least it loads. It isn't finding its support files (which I didn't
load). But it looks like it should work if you do the full install.

Yep, bsdi vesion does work, with the support files, thanks.

Not quite 'out of the box' from the listserv website tho'.

More later.

Yes it is.

1. trouble running/compiling freebsd 3.3-release

hi

i have a dual P100 box running freebsd-3.3-release with self-compiles
SMP kernel. but this machine behaves really strange. i can compile, but
sometimes, it fails on random files, that previously got compiled. no
changes done in source. and error message is just something else,
everytime... sometimes i get assembler errors due to unknown opcodes
(ex. "jna" but i think this is a right opcode) sometimes it yells about
unsigoed (note the typo, it's not in the source code)...
and further i have problems running OpenSSH it just computes wrong
checksums (it seems) and i can't connect...
i think of a dual-proccessor problem, but have no idea how to solve
this...

greetz Flavio and i hope somebody can help me...
