PostgreSQL has been reported to run successfully on MIPS r8000, r10000 (both ip25 and ip27) and r12000(ip35) processors, running IRIX 6.5.5m, 6.5.12, 6.5.13, and 6.5.26 with MIPSPro compilers version 7.30, 188.8.131.52m, 7.3, and 7.4.4m.
You will need the MIPSPro full ANSI C compiler. There are
problems trying to build with GCC. It is a known GCC bug (not
fixed as of version 3.0) related to using functions that return
certain kinds of structures. This bug affects functions like
semctl. It is supposed to be fixed by forcing
code to link those functions with libgcc, but this has not been
It is known that version 7.4.1m of the MIPSPro compiler generates incorrect code. The symptom is “invalid primary checkpoint record” when trying to start the database.) Version 7.4.4m is OK; the status of intermediate versions is uncertain.
There may be a compilation problem like the following:
cc-1020 cc: ERROR File = pqcomm.c, Line = 427 The identifier "TCP_NODELAY" is undefined. if (setsockopt(port->sock, IPPROTO_TCP, TCP_NODELAY,
Some versions include TCP definitions
in ‘sys/xti.h’, so it is necessary to
in ‘src/backend/libpq/pqcomm.c’ and in
‘src/interfaces/libpq/fe-connect.c’. If you encounter
this, please let us know so we can develop a proper fix.
In the regression tests, there might be some low-order-digit differences in the geometry tests, depending on which FPU are you using. Any other error is cause for suspicion.
