requirements before application

Rémi Zara-2
Hi,

I would like to participate in the buildfarm project with a netbsd 2.0
mac68k machine.
On the registration form page, it is indicated that a successful build
run can be done.
Does this mean a successful run of the run_build.pl script, or a
successful build of postgresql ?
I ask because right now my platform requires a patch to build, and
another to configure with kerb5...

Regards,

Rémi zara

It really means at a minimum that you don't have perl or CVS errors.

We are testing what is in the Postgres CVS repository, so you shouldn't have
patches applied - that's a good thing, as it helps highlight the urgency of
certain patches. So getting the OK stage of the scripts (i.e. a successful
build of everything and all checks passing) is not a prerequisite.

It is also not required to run with all the options enabled. For example, I
know that there is a problem with pltcl on Cygwin, so my Cygwin buildfarm
member doesn't have --with-tcl set. Many people don't compile with krb5. Are
there submitted patches to deal with your two problems?

If you're setting up a new member, please get the latest version from the
pgfoundry CVS - I will be rolling that into a new release in the next 24
hours.

cheers

andrew

Ok, all good then.

a patch is pending for the build problem.
For the krb5 configure problem, I've not submitted a patch, but it
should be trivial.

I've just checked out the latest code from CVS
