We use GNU Autoconf so it is possible to compile and use DataparkSearch on almost every modern UNIX system with a C compiler without any modifications. We develop the software on FreeBSD 7.x using PostgreSQL 8.3.
Currently known systems where DataparkSearch has been successfully compiled and tested on are:
CentOS 3.1, CentOS 3.3
Debian GNU/Linux (Lenny, Etch) (i386)
FreeBSD 2.2.5, 3.x, 4.x, 5.x, 6.x, 7.x
Linux Fedora Core-1, Kernel 2.4.22-1.2174
Linux Mandrake 10.2
Linux Red Hat 8.0, 9.0
Solaris 10 x86, gcc
Ubuntu Linux 6.10, 7.x, 8.x, 9.04 (i386 and amd), 1x.yy
Gentoo Linux 2007.0 amd64
OpenBSD 4.5 (i386)
We hope DataparkSearch will work on other Unix platforms as well. Please report successful platforms to firstname.lastname@example.org.
NFS notes: There are some problems reported running DataparkSearch over NFS v4 on Linux 2.6.17. Although, everything is OK on this system when NFS v3 is used.
