Subject: [SWISH-E] compiling on IRIX 6.5, Solaris 2.8, Linux 2.4.20
This is not to report a problem; I just figured the archive would
benefit from my experience.
This afternoon I successfully compiled SWISH-E 2.4.1 with zlib 1.1.4 and
libxml2 2.6.5 support on the following systems: Solaris 2.8, IRIX 6.5
IP27, and Linux 2.4.20. (SuSE). SWISH-E, libxml2 and zlib are all
installed in the same filesystem. in different subdirectories by OS,
which is made available via NFS on many different operating systems.
I use a tcsh shell, so for setting environment variables change the
syntax if you use bash, etc.
I am using Perl 5.6.1 on all 3 systems; this required editing the
typemap file in the perl/ subdirectory in the swish-e source to include:
const char * T_PV
(That is from the swish-e archive; thanks, Michael Kukla and Bill
The following configurations were used:
make - GNU make 3.80
cc - GNU GCC 3.2.1
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /path/to/gcc/lib:\
setenv LD_RUN_PATH /path/to/swish-e/2.4.1/lib
(LD_RUN_PATH is per the README in the SWISH-E perl directory)
./configure --prefix=/path/to/swish-e/2.4.1/sunos \
SWISH::API Perl module:
perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/path/to/swish-e/2.4.1/sunos \
LIBS="-L/path/to/swish-e/2.4.1/lib -L/path/to/zlib/sunos/lib \
As with all things *nix, Linux seems to work with the least hassle.
Make use of that old PC in the corner and save yourself the grief of
trying to use Windows or other *nix flavors.
make = GNU make 3.80
cc = GNU GCC 3.3
This was virtually identical to the Solaris install, except that I did
not need to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include the gcc/lib path, since Linux
puts all that in the default /usr/lib. And of course, I didn't use
'sunos' in the all my install paths, I used 'linux'.
This was the trickiest, since IRIX uses some non-standard env variables.
make = GNU make 3.79.1
cc = GNU GCC 3.2.1
The same as above except:
setenv LD_LIBRARYN32_PATH /path/to/gcc/lib:/path/to/swish-e/2.4.1/lib
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /path/to/gcc/lib:/path/to/swish-e/2.4.1/lib
and use 'irix' instead of 'sunos' in paths.
One thing I discovered is the "-L/path/to/zlib -lz" was required in
addition to the "-L/path/to/swishe/lib -lswish-e" for the perl module
configuration. Otherwise, I got errors about the Perl DynamicLoader
failing to recognize the compress2 symbol. This was not noted in the
perl/README, but the README did get me on the right track with the 'no
root access' section.
