Globus Toolkit installer, from Globus Toolkit development download page
Ant 1.5.1+. Do not use the ant distributed with Fedora Core 2.
C compiler. If gcc, avoid version 3.2. 3.2.1 and 2.95.x are okay.
JDBC compliant database. For instance, postgres 7.1+
gpt-3.2autotools2004 (shipped with the installers, but required if building standalone GPT bundles/packages)
Some kernel/libc combinations trigger a threading problem. See bug #2194. The workaround is to set LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 in your environment.
Fedora Core 2 ships with a broken ant. Install your own ant from http://ant.apache.org and either remove the ant RPM or edit /etc/ant.conf, setting ANT_HOME to your own ant installation.
GPT's MD5.xs needs to be patched at line 52 with
./gpt-3.2autotools2004/support/Digest-MD5-2.20/MD5.xs: + #define na PL_na + #define dowarn PL_dowarn
Specify --with-flavor=vendorcc32 on the configure line. GNU tar and GNU make are required on the PATH.
Tested on a PA-RISC box with HPUX 11.11 with IPv6 patches.
HP Ansi-C compiler, version B.11.11.12
Apache Ant 1.6.2
Supported flavors are vendorcc32dbg/vendorcc32 and vendorcc64dbg/vendorcc64 using the Visual Age compilers (xlc). No gcc flavors are supported.
vendorcc64dbg/vendorcc64 will be supported for 4.0 final but currently there are a few smaller problems with the installer which stops the 64bit install to be easy.
GNU tar and make is required before the IBM ones in the PATH.
The toolkit has been tested on AIX 5.2 with:
Visual Age C/C++ 6.0
32 bit version of IBM Java 1.4
Apache Ant 1.5.4
Supported flavors are gcc32, gcc64, vendorcc32 and vendorcc64. The dbg flavors should work as well. For gcc64, a gcc built to target 64 bit object files is required.
WS-C does not build correctly. This should be fixed for 4.0 final.
GPT has problems with the Sun provided perl and tar: http://www.gridpackagingtools.org/book/latest-stable/ch01s07.html
The toolkit has been tested on Solaris 9 with:
Sun Workshop 6 update 2 C 5.3
Sun Java 1.4.2_02
Apache Ant 1.5.4
Only Java-only components will build. Please choose the Java WS Core-only download and follow the instructions in the Java WS Core System Administrator's Guide.
