Description Steevithak 2000-01-11 23:34:16 UTC
The postgreSQL 6.5.2 (RH6.1) and 6.5.3 (rawhide) SRPMs fail with an error
if an attempt is made to use the rpm --rebuild command. It appears that the
configure script cannot determine the system type and no Makefile is
created, resulting in a make failure.  This is a bit of problem as the
binary RPMs fail to work at all on Ultra Sparcs (and probably other 64 bit
architecures). A simple one-line patch is available to fix the problem but
it appears that compiling and installing postgreSQL from the SRPMS is
itself a non-trivial procedure.

If you're rebuilding on a sparc64 platform, you will need to do
	sparc32 rpm --rebuild postgres*.src.rpm
Using sparc32 is necessary for many src.rpm's.

Otherwise, please indicate the error that you are seeing.

I believe this problem is resolved. Please reopen if not.
