I'm happy to report that the new bootstrap script ran fine. Thank you
for this fine job ! :-) I'm now encountering several other problems,
which I'm tackling one after the other :
- All the packages that I want to install seem to have a dependency with
gcc (/usr/ports/lang/gcc, not gcc3), even the "low-level" ones (gettext,
gmake, libiconv, ...). So, I'm beginning with gcc-2.95.3. As before, I'm
using IBM's gcc 2.95 for the job.
- gcc-2.95.3 didn't want to compile because it couldn't find
/usr/pkg/bin/zcat. So, I created a symlink from /usr/bin/zcat to
/usr/pkg/bin/zcat, but it didn't help. This is because the original AIX
zcat only handles compressed (.Z), not gzipped files. Fortunately, I
managed to find another zcat on the system, /opt/freeware/bin/zcat
(maybe coming from IBM's collection of Linux tools ?). A new symlink
solved the problem.
- Then it complained about a missing /usr/pkg/bin/gpatch. Again, I
managed to find a remplacement in /opt/freeware/bin/patch, and symlink
- Then it complained about a missing /usr/pkg/bin/gmake. (But I can't
install gmake if I don't have gcc first...). Rather than create a
symlink from /usr/bin/make (which I was sure wouldn't work), I installed
gmake 3.80 from the AIX PDS library.
For the moment, things seem to be running fine. When I'm finished with
my installations, I think I'll try to determine if the missing
executables (zcat, gpatch, gmake) were supposed to have been created
during the bootstrap phase. And I will do a bit of cleaning on the
server, too ;-)
