PostgreSQL 7.3+ should work on Series 700/800 PA-RISC machines running HP-UX 10.X or 11.X, given appropriate system patch levels and build tools. At least one developer routinely tests on HP-UX 10.20, and we have reports of successful installations on HP-UX 11.00 and 11.11.
Aside from the PostgreSQL source distribution, you will need GNU
make (HP's make will not do), and either GCC or HP's full ANSI C
compiler. If you intend to build from Git sources rather than a
distribution tarball, you will also need Flex (GNU lex) and Bison
(GNU yacc). We also recommend making sure you are fairly
up-to-date on HP patches. At a minimum, if you are building 64
bit binaries on on HP-UX 11.11 you may need PHSS_30966 (11.11) or a
successor patch otherwise
initdb may hang:
PHSS_30966 s700_800 ld(1) and linker tools cumulative patch
On general principles you should be current on libc and ld/dld patches, as well as compiler patches if you are using HP's C compiler. See HP's support sites such as http://itrc.hp.com and ftp://us-ffs.external.hp.com/ for free copies of their latest patches.
If you are building on a PA-RISC 2.0 machine and want to have 64-bit binaries using GCC, you must use GCC 64-bit version. GCC binaries for HP-UX PA-RISC and Itanium are available from http://www.hp.com/go/gcc. Don't forget to get and install binutils at the same time.
If you are building on a PA-RISC 2.0 machine and want the compiled
binaries to run on PA-RISC 1.1 machines you will need to specify
If you are building on a HP-UX Itanium machine, you will need the latest HP ANSI C compiler with its dependent patch or successor patches:
PHSS_30848 s700_800 HP C Compiler (A.05.57) PHSS_30849 s700_800 u2comp/be/plugin library Patch
If you have both HP's C compiler and GCC's, then you might want to
explicitly select the compiler to use when you
for HP's C compiler, or
for GCC. If you omit this setting, then configure will
gcc if it has a choice.
The default install target location
is ‘/usr/local/pgsql’, which you might want to
change to something under ‘/opt’. If so, use
--prefix switch to
In the regression tests, there might be some low-order-digit differences in the geometry tests, which vary depending on which compiler and math library versions you use. Any other error is cause for suspicion.
