Robert, Thank you so much for your response. I got the cvs tree and the
configure worked perfectly with the --disable-server. Here is the command
/configure --prefix=/usr/local/pvfs2/ppc64 --with-kernel=/lib/modules/2.6.9
-5.EL/build --disable-karma --disable-server
***** Displaying PVFS2 Configuration Information *****
PVFS2 configured to build karma gui : no
PVFS2 configured to perform coverage analysis : no
PVFS2 configured for aio threaded callbacks : yes
PVFS2 configured for the 2.6.x kernel module : yes
PVFS2 configured for the 2.4.x kernel module : no
PVFS2 configured for using the mmap-ra-cache : no
PVFS2 configured for a thread-safe client library : yes
PVFS2 will use workaround for redhat 2.4 kernels : no
PVFS2 will use workaround for buggy NPTL : no
PVFS2 server will be built : no
PVFS2 version string: 1.1.0pre1-2005-04-05-20:47:22
But now it won't build.
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible lib/libpvfs2.a when searching for -lpvfs2
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpvfs2
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [src/apps/kernel/linux/pvfs2-client-core] Error 1
Which seems strange to me because the ar archive is 64 bit. Are you aware
of a cvs build that has been known to work with my set up? Or am I doing
something stupid again?
Thanks again for your help and time.
