I want to collect more then what is below; this is just meant as a starting point. If you want to submit an entry put the following in: - Name and Email - a diff of config.data against config.dist leaving out changes to local paths (except where they are relevant for work i.e. path to egrep) Please send me diffs as you find them below, not entire config.data files. Please strip the diff to only include the changed lines (see the entries below to see what I mean). - the software environment it runs on (OS name and version, vendor patches to OS applied - compiler (version?) and compiling environment. - other changes you made Please see the entries below first to get the impression before you submit an entry. Send new entries to me (hwr@pilhuhn.de) and questions about specific configurations to the submitter of the entry.

My syslog.h is not in <sys/syslog.h> but <syslog.h>, and it doesn't contain LOG_NEWS. A new syslog is probably much wanted on the standard hpux-10.01. I used the one from a recent berkeley syslog.h : #define LOG_NEWS (7<<3) /* network news subsystem */ Also, HPUX doesn't come with yacc. I tried byacc 3.0 but it didn't work, so I used bison -y. Finally, HPUX doens't have egrep, i used the GNU version. ----- Daryl Gaumer (darylg@cup.hp.com) adds: I use the syslog that is shipped as part of HP-UX. I have the following in my config.data file: LOG_INN_SERVER LOG_LOCAL7 LOG_INN_PROG LOG_LOCAL7 FYI. The full blown C/ANSII-C compiler is a separate product. I think yacc comes with this product. Corrections: egrep ships with HP-UX (as part of the "core-OS"). It is /usr/bin/egrep on a system running 9.05 (and on my workstation with is running HP-UX 10.01). ------------------------------ Subject: (9.10) Fujitsu DS/90 running UXP/DS(V20L10) ##FROM: Fumio MORIYA <momo@yk.fujitsu.co.jp> ##DIFF: DEFS -I../include -DUXPDSV20 USE_CHAR_CONST DO CFLAGS $(DEFS) -O PROF -p LIBS -lnsl -lsocket -lelf -lresolv LINTLIBSTYLE SYSV LINTFLAGS -b -h $(DEFS) LINTFILTER | sed -n -f ../sedf.sysv RANLIB echo VAR_STYLE STDARGS SIZE_T size_t UID_T uid_t GID_T gid_t PID_T pid_t POINTER void LOCK_STYLE LOCKF HAVE_UNISTD DO HAVE_SETBUFFER DONT HAVE_SETSID DO HAVE_TM_GMTOFF DONT HAVE_WAITPID DO USE_UNION_WAIT DONT HAVE_VFORK DONT CLX_STYLE FCNTL RES_STYLE TIMES FDCOUNT_STYLE SYSCONF > CTYPE (isascii((c)) && isXXXXX((c))) ABORTVAL void ALARMVAL unsigned GETPIDVAL pid_t SLEEPVAL unsigned QSORTVAL void LSEEKVAL off_t FREEVAL void _EXITVAL void MISSING_OBJ _PATH_SENDMAIL /usr/ucblib/sendmail -t _PATH_COMPRESS /usr/bin/compress _PATH_EGREP /usr/bin/egrep _PATH_MAILCMD /usr/bin/mailx ##OS: UXP/DS V20L10 (SVR4.2) ##COMPILER: supplied. ##MISC: *** nc.c.orig Fri Aug 30 11:47:19 1996 --- nc.c Fri Aug 30 11:20:52 1996 *************** *** 1216,1220 **** NCclearwip(&NCwip[cp->fd]); #if defined(SOL_SOCKET) && defined(SO_SNDBUF) && defined(SO_RCVBUF) ! #ifndef SUNOS5 i = 24 * 1024; if (setsockopt(fd, SOL_SOCKET, SO_SNDBUF, (char *)&i, sizeof i) < 0) --- 1216,1220 ---- NCclearwip(&NCwip[cp->fd]); #if defined(SOL_SOCKET) && defined(SO_SNDBUF) && defined(SO_RCVBUF) ! #if !defined(SUNOS5) && !defined(UXPDSV20) i = 24 * 1024; if (setsockopt(fd, SOL_SOCKET, SO_SNDBUF, (char *)&i, sizeof i) < 0) ------------------------------ Subject: (9.11) SunOS 4.1.x for INN 1.5 ##FROM: psmith@baynetworks.com (Paul D.

I've installed a good deal of GNU software. This has primarily effect on the paths but doesn't really affect compilation of INN (at least I don't think so). The only important change in the paths is for sed; /sbin/sed (the one that comes with Reliant Unix 5.43) didn't pass the sedtest, so I took the GNU version (sed-v2.05). - gettimeofday() uses only _one_ argument, so you have to change the call in lib/gettime.c (line 33) from if (gettimeofday(&tv, (struct timezone *)NULL) == -1) to if (gettimeofday(&tv) == -1) ##FURTHER NOTES: - subst.c won't compile with gcc unless you explicitely tell him to use gcc - and you have no license for the cc that comes with the system ...

This is with UnixWare 2.1.2 (the latest version at the moment), and the cc that's supplied with the system of course. I have the UnixWare Software Development Kit installed, I don't think it's necessary to compile INN though. The same setup should more or less work for all UnixWare 2.x versions. 1.x would probably be somewhat different... -- See <a href="http://www.netbsd.org">NetBSD</a> for a multiplatform OS What would you call a BBS run by a mom?
