I'm going stircrazy!

I guess I have been in bed too long. I must be some kind of crazy!

I just read the announcement that gcc 4.9.2 has been released - and I downloaded the sources.

At least 10 years ago I downloaded the current gcc sources and NEVER got a make to complete (so I have always admired the people who do).

I am considering even trying because some of the "independent developers" who work on gnu projects no longer share a principle that code should be portable. The para-phrased answer I have received when seeking assistence in packaging is that "we only code (test) for gcc. If it does not work without gcc - too bad for you. Get gcc"

So, more nightmare time - as probably the only way to compile gcc is to use gcc. Bootstrap problem... I must be crazy! Wink

updating to 7100-03
User Rating: / 0

I finally got around to updating my nim server to 7103 (aka 7100-03). The DVDs I had to work with are the ones that came out last year.

There are two sets of DVDs: one that is just AIX 7.1, (7103_dvd1 -> LK4T_1710_07_VOL_1 & 7103_dvd2 -> LK4T_1710_07_VOL_2) and one that is the update package (7103_upd_dvd1 -> LCD8_1512_06_VOL_1 & 7103_upd_dvd2 -> LCD8_1512_06_VOL_2). As you can see from the LCD numbers both sets are two dvd's large.

If you are going to try to order one or the other from IBM the key numbers are LCD8_1512 (AIX 7.1 update) and LK4T_1710 (AIX 7.1 base). The additional numbers _06 and _07 respectively are the number of updates published - just like other IBM publications.

Update: MUST also update using update DVDs or ssh dies!

In case you notice - these days I am offline occainsionally.

My budget is limited, but I really wanted to be able to play with DFP and also have more virtual machines, boot from iSCSI and other excuses for buying a new, though refurbished, system. Image and

Curious which patch belongs to which CVE report? So were others. The one you really want to be sure you have is patch 27 (for version 4.3). I'll have to do some homework for bash 4.2 but I expect it will be patch 48 or patch 49.

FYI: a new patch cam out yesterday (4.3.29, 4.2.52, ... version 2.0.5b.12). Not built yet (porting server needs a hw fix).
