Frame assembled, POWER units in real rails! (harder than I expected - alone!), and cabled up. Need a day to test and reconfigure IP addresses.

In short, almost there with the new hardware setup.

As I tweeted earlier - back at work, and full of energy burning the midnight oil I have updated the aixtools wiki with information about the two latest Apache HTTPD releases. And I have learned how to SMOKE perl.

The tests with perl are going quite well, and while they are quite late, in the perl sense of things - I shall be packaging perl versions 5.12.5 through the latest maintenance version (released 14 September 2014) 5.20.1.

Having a great time in Greece - Island hopping vacation. When I am back I will update the website with news on new service packs and firmware. I also hope to have more news on newer versions of perl for AIX.
Perl 5.20.0 for AIX - real soon! PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michael Felt   

I blame it all on ApacheTest Wink because I was trying to test the latest version httpd-2.4.10 and was getting lots of errors. Of course, perl-5.8.2 and perl-5.8.8 are properly ancient - while perl-5.10.1 is merely past end-of-life.

In short, I needed to do my testing on AIX 7.1 with the supported version of perl at v5.10.1. That was at least enough for the latest CPAN to load and to get the bundle ApacheTest to load.

Good news is: http-2.4.10 comes up with 0 errors - of all that were not skipped at least - AND, I nearly have perl v5.20.0 ready for trial for AIX 5.3, AIX 6.1 and AIX 7.1 - as aixtools.perl.

More news soon! Cool
