I grabbed the latest code (6.5) from the cvs source tree. The following
regression tests failed:

int2 .. failed
int4 .. failed
geometry .. failed
triggers .. failed
misc .. failed
plpgsql .. failed

I am running Red Hat 5.1 on intel. Should I be concerned about these? I am
eager to get up and running on 6.5 but always seem to run into one obstacle
or another.

Thanks, Michael

    int2 .. failed
    int4 .. failed
    Both int2 and int4 have been consistently failing
    for me, but it is due to a wording problem:

    pg_atoi: error reading "100000": Math result not representable
    instead of
    pg_atoi: error reading "100000": Numerical result out of range

    Also, float8 usually fails for me, due to the expected
    being a 'result is out of range' error, and the result being:
    ! bad|?column?
    ! ---+--------
    ! |0
    ! |NaN etc.
    geometry .. failed
    This almost always fails due to a rounding differences.
    Is there a way to build the rounding into the test
    so that it would fail if something is _really_ wrong?
    triggers .. failed
    For me, "check_primary_key: even number of arguments should be specified"
    is shown as an error, which is not 'expected', then, as a result,
    everything else in the test fails.

    This is definately a problem.
    misc .. failed
    plpgsql .. failed
    I'm not too sure about these.. I had a host of other failures, but
    this was due to me running the test in the wrong account....
    running it in the right account now. :)

    I have the same configuration, Pentium Pro, RH 5.1 almost stock configuration.

    Just a quick answer on this, but if you look in the test/regress/expected
    subdirectory, there are "system specific" .out files for a few systems.
    It isn't perfect, but it does help to remove system specific differences
    in the regressio tests...

    If your OS doesn't have an appropriate file there, please feel free to
    confirm that the problem is benign and submit an appropraite file for
    inclusion...if your OS does have an appropriate file and is still having a
    problem, then it is something that we shoudl look at...
