Some notes for the Tru64 Unix 5.x port ====================================== 1. Compiling ------------ The following procedure has been proven to successfully compile net-snmp version 5.2.2 and later on Tru64 Unix 5.1B (Alpha EV5.6) using the Compaq C 6.5 compiler: ./configure --disable-embedded-perl make su - make install A recent GNU C compiler (gcc) will probably work, too. Please note that the "host" module doesn't compile on Tru64, so you *cannot* run configure with "--with-mib-modules=host". 2. Embedded Perl ---------------- The Perl package (5.00503) shipped with Tru64 Unix 5.1 isn't complete enough to allow to build net-snmp with embedded Perl support. If you need embedded Perl support, do your own Perl installation first. 3. IPv6 ------- Starting with net-snmp 5.4 you can enable the UDPIPv6 and TCPIPv6 transports on Tru64 Unix 5.1: ./configure --enable-ipv6 There's no support for the IPv6 MIBs, though. 4. Known problems ----------------- "make test" is known to report the following failure: 59: testing full snmpwalk (SNMPv2c) against agent (may take time)... FAIL so it's obvious that there are still problems with some MIB modules on Tru64. If you have ideas how to fix them, please let us know! 5. Feedback ----------- Please also see README and PORTING. If you have questions, additional insights or (even better) patches regarding net-snmp on Tru64 Unix, please refer to the net-snmp mailing lists (see http://www.net-snmp.org/lists).
