I talked toJoerg Sonnenberger via private mail and IRC and created some more patches for the bootstrap process. He is not available before tomorrow. I hope he'll find the time to review the patches I'll send him tomorrow morning - and after (if any) working in his feedback, I'll send you the patches.
That would be most helpful.
We are currently running AIX 5300-08-03-0831. I still have to apply any available xlC updates then I'll try to bootstrap.Sure - therefore those updates are good for (I think). I'm using xlC 10.1 and except a problem with misc/less I don't encounter any problem, which I couldn't fix.I'm also anticipating upgrading to AIX 6 in November, then doing pkgsrc builds inside a WPAR environment, so as to avoid pollution in the normal production environment. Kind of like pkg_comp in effect, but not really.I don't think that Bayer Business Solutions will be so quick here :))But we currently build in a chroot environment on AIX 5.3 TL8 (same OS you're running).
Ok - I'd love to hear how you did the chroot (copying pkgsrc-users now), because I'm likely to defer that upgrade until Feb. next year.
I had problems (was trying to find the equiv. of mount_null on AIX to no avail) and IBM's support line was no help, so I dropped it. The things I tried failed miserably, and it's been a couple months so I've dropped it mentally too.
