Compiled on Solaris

9 September 2007, 16:29

Just a note to say I've built Hiawatha (v5.12, cache) on Solaris 10 x86, and it's now serving HTTP under a Solaris Zone. I haven't tried a rewrite or SSL build yet.

I'm using the Sun Studio 12 toolchain, and needed to set the following:
LIBS=-lsocket -lnsl

I also had to change flock() to fcntl() in target.c

Thanks for the hard work on Hiawatha. It's a refreshing change from the status quo.

That's really good to hear. Another OS for my 'works oke' list.

I'd really appreciate if you could let me know the exact changes you've made to the source, so I can make sure the next release will compile 'out of the box' on Solaris. I don't have access to a Solaris machine, so I can't test it myself. If you can try to make SSL and rewrite builds, that would also be great.

Okay, I've done a complete build now ( Hiawatha v5.12, SSL, cache, URL rewrite ).

I needed to set the following:
LDFLAGS=-L/usr/sfw/lib -R/usr/sfw/lib
LIBS=-lcrypto -lssl -lsocket -lnsl

OpenSSL lives under /usr/sfw, and the flags are described in man openssl.
Sun Studio 12 path should be ahead of /usr/ucb path.

The code changes were:

At line 1346 of target.c
	/* if (flock(handle_write, LOCK_EX) == -1) { */
if (fcntl(handle_write, F_SETLK, F_WRLCK ) == -1 ) {

At line 1433 of target.c
	/* flock(handle_write, LOCK_UN); */
fcntl(handle_write, F_SETLK, F_UNLCK);

Great!!!! I'll make the necessary changes to the autoconf scripts, so it will compile on Solaris out-of-the-box.

In the Hiawatha source directory, a file 'Makefile' is created after running './configure'. There should be a line in it which starts with 'build_os ='. Can you tell me what comes next on that line? I need it to detect a building on Solaris.

On my box ( Solaris Express build 35 with BrandZ support ), that line reads:
build_os = solaris2.11

The complete triplet is i386-pc-solaris2.11

Regular Solaris 10 x86 is i386-pc-solaris2.10, and uses the same build tools, paths, etc...

Can I have your e-mail address? If I'm ready with the changes, I'll send you a test version of the next release, so you can test for me if I've done everything right. Send an e-mail to hugo at leisink dot net if you want to help me. Also please send me your config.log file. That would help me alot making Hiawatha ready for Solaris.

Done. Looking forward to the testing the next one.
