Re: [augeas-devel] [Puppet Users] Compiling augeas on AIX?

Hi Frank,

I've CCed the augeas-devel list, as that's a better place to ask.

Interesting, there's only one shared library you need to link
ruby-augeas to augeas itself.  What problems are you getting exactly?

I'm pretty sure we've had people work on AIX in the past, but I don't
know if anybody's compiled it recently.

Solaris will definitely work, but there are issues with 0.10.0 "out of
the box".  OpenCSW (Mark Phillips) have compiled it with a few patches,
have a look at their svn repo:

In particular you'll need these patches:
0001-fix-compiling-on-solaris.patch (adds some gnulib modules)
0002-regexp-escape.patch (fixes broken code path on some OSes)

There's another to fix a missing libxml2 dependency in pkg-config if you
need that (which could affect building ruby-augeas).
