Compiling BZIP2 in 64-bit mode


I've recently installed a P570 running AIX 5.3, installed the gcc compiler for AIX 5.2 from a link provided by gcc.gnu.org, and loaded the BZIP2 source from RedHat.

Try as I might, I can not get the BZIP2 object to run in 64-bit mode.  That is, fopen() calls the underlying 32-bit functions instead of the 64-bit ones.

Can anyone point me to generating a 64-bit object?

Thanks,
Kent

Hi Venabili,

I've got no problems with giving the points to gheist for a good suggestion.

The implemented solution was to simply install IBM's licensed C compiler.

KEnt,

IF the installation had helped you, then the recomemdnation should be a PAQ-refund

Just a note:  I was really surprised to see abandoned question from one of the top experts - and not just abandoned but with ignord suggestion... Please answer to the experts around - you are an expert, you know what is the feeling when you propose something and it seems like noone cares :)

My apologies.  (They are certainly in order!)

When I first tried to build the 64-bit application I hadn't installed the IBM C compiler as there was a licensing issue.  So I downloaded gcc and tried with that, to no avail.

Shortly thereafter "management" decided that the entire server needed rebuilding.  I abandoned the then-current effort and let the installation overwrite my doctored-up efforts.  As part of the reinstall, the IBM compiler was loaded.

As far as this question is concerned, I let it devolved into "out of sight, out of mind".

Again, I apologize to the other experts.
