[PVFS2-users] IBM JS20 ppc64 & redhat 4 issue

First, thanks for supporting this list and answering all the questions. I
searched the archives as best I could but didn't find the answer to my
question so forgive me if I am repeating anything. I am running redhat 4 on
ppc64 compiled with gcc. The default compiles 32bit binaries which I guess
is ok, because everything works as far as pvfs2-ls, pvfs2-ping etc. In
addition, I was able to insmod the pvfs2.ko.
However, what doesn't work is mounting now using the kernel module:
[root at blade002 linux-2.6]# mount /mnt/pvfs2
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on
or too many mounted file systems
from the syslog:
Apr 3 20:06:30 blade002 kernel: pvfs2: pvfs2_get_sb -- wait timed out
(ec0001). aborting attempt.
Apr 3 20:06:30 blade002 kernel: pvfs2_get_sb: mount request failed with
I am wondering if this is because I need to build the binaries, etc in 64
bit mode. When I do that I com with:
/configure --prefix=/usr/local/pvfs2/ppc64/ --with-kernel=/lib/modules/2.6.
but it doesn't find the DB. I modified the configure script (line 1981) to
search for db4-2 (since thats what I see in /lib64 )and that configured
properly, but the make failed:
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible lib/libpvfs2-server.a when searching
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpvfs2-server
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [src/server/pvfs2-server] Error 1
I'm sure I'm forgetting/doing something stupid. If anyone can help me, I
would greatly appreciate it.
I should also mention that the file server is an Intel Xeon machine EM64T
running rh4 as well and everything works perfect in that.
