PG and AIX

P: n/a
Good Morning Everyone,

Just curious what problems, if any, have you had compiling/using Posgres on
an AIX system. Up until now, my main experience with PG has been on Linux
systems, and I was just wondering what differences there are in using the
software on an AIX system.

TIA

I'm sure that over time people have had tons of problems with AIX, but
you're going to get more helpful answers if you ask specific questions.
Just try it and come back when you have a problem.

We use it in our AIX 4.3.3, and it works perfect.
Just be careful to use some extra options
when configuring the source, like:

--without-readline --without-zlib

or use --with-lib=/your/extra/lib/directory
to point the configure script to find out those
librarys.

We use both 7.4 and 7.3.x in our environment.

There is a FAQ... doc/FAQ_AIX

I have found AIX to be not terribly fun when trying to compile custom
C modules to link into PostgreSQL; it hasn't yet solidified into a
"general procedure," and if you aren't using custom stuff, that may
not be terribly relevant.

The "user space" on AIX feels a fair bit different from Linux but it
isn't self-evident that this 'bites' the use of PostgreSQL. The
default shell is ksh-based, rather than Bash-based, but that isn't
particularly relevant to PG...
