I have ported PostgreSQL to the AmigaOS using a Unix emulation library.
PostgreSQL 6.1 work fine but either PostgreSQL 6.2 and 6.4.2 give me
problems on initdb. Postgres backend spits out this message:
ERROR: fmgr_info: function 0: cache lookup failed
Anybody has any idea of why this happens?
BTW, since the Amiga Developer environment that I used emulates the
normal Unix enviroment, would the PostgreSQL developers be interested
that integrated any Amiga specific templates and ported code to make the
main distribuition of PostgreSQL build out of the box on the Amiga OS
Definitely...please send patches in to email@example.com with
what is required, but plesae make sure that any patches are against the
current source tree, not v6.4.2...
Ok, but to work on the current source tree wouldn't it be better to get me
a CVS write account so I can work in the absolutely latest version? Don't
Access to the CVS repository is limited, with the only ones that have
received it in the past being those that have worked with us for ages now,
and have proven themselves in so far as the patches they have submitted.
I'm sorry I didn't mean to push myself in. After all you've just met me so
you don'y know if you can trust me to not damage the source tree. It's ok,
I understand. I would probably be reserved as you are in this circumstance.
BTW, congratulations for you dedication to the development of a capable
Open Source RDBMS.
There is access to the current source tree available via snapshot's
created nightly, CVSup as well as anon-CVS ... all documented on the web
Ok, I am downloading it now, so I can send you the patches with cvs diff -c
I am trying to figure from cvs log if the problem referred above has been
fixed but I could not determine that because the log of changes since
1999-01-02 doesn't seem to mention any fixes for that explicitly.
I noticed that users of other platforms seem to have a similar problem.
Can you please tell if any progress was done regarding the mentioned
