Summary: Building 64 bit perl, mod_perl 64 bit apache and connecting to 64
Re: Errors building mod_perl on 64 bit perl Solaris
[In reply to]
bit MySql database on Solaris Sparc
We could successfully build 64 bit apache with the configuration options so
kindly shared by John D. Groenveld, also, in order to build mod_perl on 64
bit perl we had to recompile perl 64 bit, these are the flags we used:
./Configure -ders -Dcc=cc -Ud_sigsetjmp -Uinstallusrbinperl -Ulocincpth=
-Uloclibpth= -Duse64bitint -Duse64bitall -Ud_strerror_r -Ud_signbit
-Duselargefiles -Dprefix=/usr/perl10/5.18.0 -Accflags="-xcode=pic32"
The noteworthy flags in above ./Configure are -Accflags="-xcode=pic32" in
./Configure the "-Accflags=" passes the flags you want to the C compiler,
in our case we wanted the -xcode=x32 flag to be passed to the C
compiler(solaris studio compiler) because of the error message we were
"symbol PL_check: relocations based on the ABS44 coding model can not be
used in building a shared object"
So to build for "shared object" support, perl 64 bit had to be recompiled
with the -xcode=pic32 flag
Building mod_perl was then seamless, perl Makefile.PL (NOTE: the perl is
teh perl which was built with above arguments.
make, make install.
It is important to use the SAME COMPILER for everything. We are using
Solaris Studio compiler, which, John D. Grovenfeld also used. We needed
DBD::mysql to talk to the MYSql database, now Mysql was installed on
Solaris 10 via pkgadd and is a 64 bit application. Needless to say it is
safe to assume that Oracle built it using the Solaris Studio compiler......
DBD::mysql was built using MCPAN shell.....
Hope this helps someone in the future.......
Thanks to John D. Groenveld, The other resources online, and to my boss...
